Civilian Ways

This song is by Rancid and appears on the album Let the Dominoes Fall (2009).

I hold the cold steel of my rifle as I dream of foreign lands
And I promise myself I will cherish every moment I can
But there's ghosts that follow me around everywhere I am
When I say goodbye, I try to be strong
Now I'm going back to the U.S. where I belong

I ain't never alone, the war seems to follow me home
No longer an active soldier
When I walk down the street
I'm shaking hands with everyone that I meet
And I watch everyone, wondering what they see

Civilian ways are now what's foreign to me
I came off a long tour
I left this place in two-oh-three
May we never forget the sacrifices
My friends made for me

I live in Marysville, out on the county line
And my brother and my mother both visit me all the time
And visions of you are always running right through my mind
We always talk about what we're gonna do when the war is won
We're gonna fix up them old cars and ride them into the sun
When I heard you're no longer with us, man I was done

Civilian ways are now what's foreign to me
I came off a long tour
I left this place in two-oh-three

May we never forget the sacrifices
My friends made for me
