Well, goodbye my friend it was good to know you,
I hope you understand,
Twenty-one years and I ain't got nothing,
But sitting, wondering if I can,
Wishing and dreaming, Hoping and reaching,
For things I was never meant to have,
If my foolish life's a product of my gross misconceptions,
Who's gonna give a damn?

I don't want,
Peace on earth,
I just want to go,
I just want to go home.

I know I never was much more than you expected,
I expect I won't disappoint,
But my dreams were not as hollow as the empty world I saw though,
I guess I never did get the point,
Life cannot just be the only option left,
The only thing you can count on in this world in regret.

I don't want,
Peace on earth,
I just want to go,
I just want to go home.

Right world, wrong time
and they say to me, "Hang cool teddy bear"

Best thing to do,
We'll just feed them fear,
Get them thinking about there,
And forgetting about here,
We won't try to fight,
We won't try to win,
When they knock you down
You gotta get back up again

I don't wanna be an end,
For someone else's dirty hand,
To rape the desert of it's sand,
And pluck the fertile, virgin land,
I don't wanna be.
But I'm not so self-righteous to think that I,
Would not take one hundred thousand lives,
To see my mother's eyes,
And trace that southern smile,
I don't wanna die,
I don't wanna die,
I don't want too much more than a working man deserves,
Just a life worth living and a death worth dying for.

I don't want,
Peace on earth,
I just want to go home.

I don't want,
Peace on earth,
I just want to go home.
I just want to go home.
I just want to go home.
I just want to go home.

I don't want,
Peace on earth,
