lyrics

When the alarm's been rung
And you run for your life,
Like a coin that's spinning on the edge of a knife

And when the fire's gone out
And it's safe to return,
Do you light another to see what it burns?

As the smoke begins to fill your lungs,
You cough it up just like you've always done,
What's a gun to a soldier when the war is won over?
What's a gun to a soldier now?

And when your scars are gone,
When you've healed your insides,
Think of what they looked like,
They're what kept you alive

As the smoke begins to fill your lungs,
You cough it up just like you've always done,
What's a gun to a soldier when the war is won over?
When the war is behind you,
Don't look over your shoulder,
What's a gun to a soldier?
