Every moment
Every waking hour
I see your face covered in blood

Your body broken
Your limbs in tatters
The desert air stinging my lungs

I can't escape
The sound of the fighter planes
And I can't escape the pain

I come back home
To the parade confetti
People buy me drinks, wanna' shake
My hand

But my hero's welcome
Soon fades to silence
I close my eyes
and see the blood on the sand

I can't escape
the sound of the fighter planes
And I can't escape the pain

They say you can never come back
You can only go home
(You can never get away)
