Lyrics & Music by Jackson and John Kirk

Written days before the war in Iraq began, the song is a reflection of a struggle.
"If I supports this war I must fight in it and expect my son would also. What would I think if I fought and was mortally wounded? We chose to protest because we did not trust our country's leadership. We did not believe in the war. This song was our first attempt to honor the soldiers who die in our name by opposing the people who sent them to fight".
[lights-out]

The moment's slow – years move so fast
I've gotta run I'll miss my past
Don't wake me when it's over..

The shortest story ever told
Died so young - Born so old
Don't look it's on my shoulder

I won't be back again
Not punished for my sins
I face eternity with at I chose – to be..

I'm declaring peace today
Better get out of my way
Go home now the fighting's over.

The Greatest story ever told
A poor man's peace beats rich man's gold
We'll take it off his -shoulders

We won't be back again
Not punished for our sins
We face eternity with what we chose – to be.

I want to take you with me
I'm holding you round your knees
But I know – when I go
I go alone

The heart beats slow Blood flows so fast
I could not run, I missed my past
Woke up and now it's over

The earnest story never told
I died so young for rich man's gold
Don't look it's on -your shoulder

I won't be back again
Not punished for my sins
I face eternity with at I chose
and what we chose and what you chose for me..

I want to take you with me
I'm holding you round your knees
And I know – when I go
when I go.. I go alone. I go alone. I go alone..
