Tim from Detroit, Mibeing a vet, this song was on my ipod non stop in iraq & afghan, to me it's about joining young not caring about anything, starting a family in the military, with a wifey and kids, then deploying. when you're in the sandbox yesterday dont matter, and tomorrows a mystery. that's why songs are great, you interpret them to your life. semper fi mac
