When will this war end?
And when can i go home?
When can i sleep
and finally be left alone?

I'm tired of being the hero
I'm exhausted from all my falls
took too many blows to the head
now i just want to go to bed

I cant fight anymore
I'm weak; I'm done
my knife has gone dull
and I'm all out of bullets

My arms are limp and
my legs are crumbling underneath me

How can i fight their battles
when i can't even fight my own?
i want to run and cry
the thing is that
I'm just too darn grown

I don't want to be their soldier anymore; that's it!
my heart and soul are sore
i need to fight for myself
or I'm absolutely no good
to anyone else
