If you go to war we will tear down your memorial
And smother your eternal flame
And never speak your name again
And you will be forgotten.
If you go to war we will sleep with your best friend
And give away your dog
And torch your pickup
And you will come home to nothing.
If you go to war we won't mourn your death
And will neglect your grave
And send no condolence cards
And your mother will cry alone.
If you stay home
One day there will be no war.
