lyrics

Did you know that you can smell fear
I’ve smelled it on my own skin
Like acid and burnt tin foil
Stow it with pride and adrenaline

I’ve been to the depths of war
I’ve seen the best of men
Seen the fire and the look in their eyes
That only blood can quench

That’s my war, that’s my war
My cross to bear from all the tours
I used to wonder if there’s any of me left
Or is it just fear and loss and regret
I count to four, kick in the door
I’m not the man I was before, that’s my war

I’ve touched the walls of Babylon
Felt the lives before me
It’s hard believe there’s so much pain
Surrounded by such beauty, it just gets to me

That’s my war, that’s my war
My cross to bear from all the tours
I used to wonder if there’s any of me left
Or is it just fear and loss and regret
I count to four, kick in the door
I’m not the man I was before, that’s my war

I’m not the father or the husband that I can be yet
Standing there at our front door I take in a long deep breath
Tell myself it’s gonna be alright
But afraid of what’s inside

That’s my war, that’s my war
My cross to bear from all the tours
I used to wonder if there’s any of me left
Or is it just fear and loss and regret
I count to four walkin the door,
Cause I can’t kick it in anymore
That’s my war
