lyrics

Inside-side-side,
We've waited for signals and signs
Held up under siege and held out for relief
and cursed the the concede

It's time, time time,
Forward through these barbwire ones
Toward an enemy, terrible and unseen,
and nothing like me

Violence and vinegar, all that I ever had
When I was young
Strange it seems to be one to go out and kill a man
Before you become one

A sad surprise, to see this with my own two eyes
First time overseas, and the scenery
not what I thought it'd be

Shots in the air, you can never prepare
For seeing yourself bleed
The face thats staring back from a barrel is all I see

Violence and vinegar, all that I ever had
When I was young

Strange it seems to be one to go out and kill a man
Before I became one

It seems all too easy to just walk away
Say I am, I am, I'm too young to blame

All I recall is when they gave me a gun
so when was I young?

Not enough, its not enough
to point ahead and give a shove
won't make a man
to give a boy a gun

Never young, or old enough
naiveté afforded us
no chance to see
no chance to look up
