lyrics

Emily Yates / Darden Smith

I’m on a highway
A highway so long
Thinking about Dylan
Singing these songs
Chimes of Freedom
Blood on the Tracks
Thought I left the war behind
But I brought it back

I can’t right the wrongs
Unknow the lies
Can’t untell the story
Can’t close my eyes
There’s so many like me
Under these skies
Who just can’t help thinking
We weren’t the good guys

We’re not the uniform
We’re not the mission
We’re not the rank we wore
We’re not ammunition
Strip off the story
See who we are
We might be in battle
But we’re not the war

So come sisters and brothers
Let’s open our arms
Make a safe haven
To keep us from harm
There we can gather
There we begin
Start loving ourselves
Forgive all our sins

We’re not the uniform
We’re not the mission
We’re not the rank we wore
We’re not ammunition
Strip off the story
See who we are
We might be in battle
But we’re not the war

We’re not the uniform
We’re not the mission
We’re not the rank we wore
We’re not ammunition
Strip off the story
See who we are
We might be in battle
But we are not the war
