Lyrics

CARRY ME BACK HOME
mother where are you tonight
wishing you could hold me tight
save me from this dying light
carry me back home
father you know me well
better than i know myself
save me from this living hell
carry me back home
hey man you call this a victory parade
you serve for five in the dessert
then they dump you in these mean streets
it's great and glorious to die for one's country the great lie
you know we ought' a move a few blocks down
i heard they got a couple of empty beds tonight in box town
hey i can't find my shoes has anybody seen my shoes
we're soldiers who've lost the war
forgetting what we're fighting for
fix me up with a little more
carry me back home
well the junk man with a crystal ball
needled me till i took the fall
and if the other side does call
bury me back home
mother where are you tonight
wishing you could hold me tight
save me from this dying light
carry me back home
