lyrics

i don't want to go outside
'cause i'm afraid of what i might find

mother waits on the stoop for me
back from the great war
in one damn piece

and i am lucky just to be alive
now all i do is sit and writhe and writhe

in the morning
in the fields
they die

in the morning in the fields they die

with a tinge
of glory
in their eyes

awake all day
in the sun
with a hot shiny gun
i run
blindy into the enemy

awake
all day
in the sun
with a hot shiny gun
i run blindly towards the enemy

and i sit
in the tall tall grass
and my hands wont grasp
in the tall tall grasp
my clip wont clasp
in the tall tall grasp
my hands wont grasp
in the tall tall grass
my clip wont clasp

awake
all day
in the sun
with a hot shiny gun
i run
blindly towards
the enemy
