The Old Man's War

I don’t want to fight the old man’s war
I don’t want to kill and die no more
I just want to live before
my life is done.
I don’t want to bring more misery
I don’t want to be part of history
I just want a little peace
before there’s none.

I don’t want to hear more graveside rites
I don’t what to live more empty nights
I just want to take this hate
and make it end.
I don’t want to fight and not know why
I don’t want to see more children cry
I just want to find a way
to start again.

    There’s just got to be
    a way to live in peace
    Are we really more different than we’re the same?
    It’s not all about ourselves
    There’s always someone else
    Must we make our future live our shame.

I just want to build whatever comes
after the war and fighting’s done
I don’t want this war to be
my children’s fate.
I don’t want them fighting the old man’s war
I don’t want to watch them die no more
I want them to be better
than our mistakes.


    There’s just got to be
    a way to live in peace
    Are we really more different than we’re the same?
    It’s not all about ourselves
    There’s always someone else
    Must we make our future live our shame.

I don’t want to fight the old man’s war
I don’t want to kill and die no more
I don’t want this war to be
my children’s fate.
I don’t want to bring more misery
I don’t want to be part of history
I want us to be better
than our mistakes.
