  • Slip back out of whack at your best
    It's a nightmare
    So I'm joining the Army

    No house phones, but can I still call?
    Will you wait for me now?

    We got the right to live, fight to use it
    Got everything but you can just choose it
    I won't just be a puppet on a string

    Don't go that way
    I'll wait for you

    And I'm tired of all your friends
    Listening at your door
    But I want what's better for you

    So long, my friend and adversary
    But I'll wait for you

    Get dressed, jump out of bed and do it best
    Are you okay?
    I've been out around this town
    Everybody's singing the same song for ten years

    I'll wait for you
    Will you wait for me, too?

    And they sacrifice their lives
    In their land are all closed eyes
    They've said it a billion times and they'll say it again
    So long, my adversary and friend

    Don't go that way
    I'll wait for you

    Well, I'm tired of all your friends
    Knocking down your door
    Get up in the morning, yelling no more
    So long, my friend and adversary
    Well, I've been waiting for you Writer/s: Albert Jr. Hammond, Fabrizio Morretti, Julian Casablancas, Nick Valensi
