[Verse 1]
We fumbled around
Pushing stones through the mesh
We reap as we sow
But so sown to the flesh

I had to dream in monochrome
A lie that they've spun
I think I hear heaven calling me home
When light pours from the sun

[Pre-Chorus]
Two lives, later I'll find
Everybody's gone 'round here
Raise arms, ain't got a hand to call mine
I'm still out to find my peace of mind

[Chorus]
I'm running on a heartbeat
I can feel it in my bloodflow
Eyes up when they call me
'Cause we're fighting in a good war
So send me off with a Godspeed
And I'll slip through the backdoor
You and I are gonna die free
'Cause we're fighting in a good war

[Verse 2]
We fumble around
Pushing homes from the nest
We're too far to be found
(Fighting in a good war)

I had to speak in protocol
Biting my tongue
Sometimes I hear hell calling me home
Yeah but I know, it's such a lie we spun

[Chorus]
I'm running on a heartbeat
I can feel it in my bloodflow
Eyes up when they call me
'Cause we're fighting in a good war
So send me off with a Godspeed
And I'll slip through the backdoor
You and I are gonna die free
'Cause we're fighting in a good war

I'm running on a heartbeat
I can feel it in my bloodflow
Eyes up when they call me
'Cause we're fighting in a good war
So send me off with a Godspeed
And I'll slip through the backdoor
You and I are gonna die free
'Cause we're fighting in a good war
