War rugs in the hallway
Prayer rugs on the wall
Who's walkin' tall?
I should be kneelin'

Soldier girl, oh, soldier boy
Tell me what to say
When I see you at Christmas leave
Tattooed and hazed

Oh, we're all growin' up together
We're all makin' a mark on it
We're all damnin' the consequences
I want to understand
The soul you have in there

Young Egypt seized the moment
And brought that bastard down
You've got technology
And you've got archeology
We treated you like hunters
Until you kicked the goal
Now we're claimin' you for our team
'Cause what do we know?

Oh, we're all growin' up together
We're all watchin' the video
We're all damnin' the consequences
I want to understand
The soul you have in there

Soldier boy, oh, soldier girl
Tell me what to say
When I see you at Christmas leave

Oh, we're all growin' up together
We're all takin' it pass or fail
We're all damnin' the consequences
I want to understand
The soul it takes to stand
For something bigger than
Myself...
