The king's taken back the throne, the useless seed is sown
When they say they're cutting off the phone, I tell 'em you're not home
No place to hide, you were fighting as a soldier on their side
You're still a soldier in your mind though nothing's on the line
You say it's money that we need as if we're only mouths to feed
I know no matter what you say, there are some debts you'll never pay

Working for the church while your family dies
You take what they give you and you keep it inside
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a home
Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone"

I can taste the fear, lift me up and take me out of here
Don't wanna fight, don't wanna die, just wanna hear you cry
Who's going to throw the very first stone? Oh, who's going to reset the bone?
Walking with your head in a sling, want to hear the soldier sing

Working for the church while my family dies
Your little baby sister's gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a home
Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone"

I can taste your fear, it's gonna lift you up and take you out of here
And the bone shall never heal, I care not if you kneel
We can't find you now but they're gonna get their money back somehow
And when you finally disappear, we'll say you were never here

Been working for the church while your life falls apart
Been singing hallelujah with the fear in your heart
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a home
Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone"
Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone"
