[Verse 1]
Now the air’s getting colder
And the news keeps us scared
They’ll have to wrestle this summer
From the bones of our tired and blistered hands
‘Cause tonight we got drinks
And just a couple of friends
And the girl that my brother likes is finally talking to him
And his chest is all swelled like he’s proud and happy
Like he’s got a great idea
Like he’s making a memory

[Chorus]
Wake up and come out to the car
There’s an east swell coming
The wind is howling off shore
And we’ll be lying like lions out in the sand
But I’ll be dead before you put a gun in my brother’s hands

[Verse 2]
So we make jokes back home
And we lighten the mood
But growing up my parents saw
What sending a kid to fight can really, really do
And now with the war, I can tell they're a little shook up
‘Cause just a few mothers’ sons, it’s cliche, but it’s never gonna be enough
Not ’til half of our names are etched out in the wall
And the other half ruined from the things we saw

[Chorus]
Wake up and come out to the car
There’s an east swell coming
The wind is howling off shore
And we’ll be lying like lions out in the sand
But I’ll be dead before you put a gun in my brother’s hands

[Chorus]
Wake up and come out to the car
There’s an east swell coming
The wind is howling off shore
And we’ll be lying like lions out in the sand
But I’ll be dead before you put a gun in my brother’s hands
