The Lyrics Are Below







This is where the helicopters came to take me away

This is where the children used to play

This is only half a mile away from the attack

This is where my life change din a day,

And then it changed back

Buried in the din of rotor noise and close explosions

I do my best to synthesize the sounds and my emotions

This is where the allies bombed the school,

They say by mistake

HEre nobody takes me for a fool, jst for a fake

Later at the hotel bar, the journalists are waiting

I hurry back to my guitar while they're commiserating


And I'll be leaving soon

I'll be leaving soon


Just as soon as we were on the ground,

We were back in the jet

Just another three-day foreign tour we'd never forget

It's hard to sympathize with all this devastation

Hopping 'round from site to site like tourists on vacation

And I'll be leaving soon

I'll be leaving soon


I can't help anyone 'cause everyone's so cold

Everyone's so skeptical of everything they're told

And even I get sick of needing to be sold


Though it's only half a month away, the media's gone

An entertaining scandal broke today, but I can't move on

I'm haunted by a story and I do my best to tell it

Can't even give this stuff away, why would I sell it?

Everybody's laughing, whiel at me they point a finger

A world that loves its irony must hate the protest singer


So I'll be leaving soon

I'll be leaving soon

I'll be leaving soon

I'll be leaving soon
