Cost of War

There's a cost to war 
When your gun is warm 
Half dead and half won 
There's an army under my chest 
Medal constitution 
No regret 

The black clouds suggest going back 
But I have come to far 
In this bullet proof vest 

My eyes tell a story 
Poker face conversation 
And the piano is playing louder 
At all my mistakes 
I laugh at this soldier 
In the dark I need no compass 
To find the shore 

Swords dull 
I don't need much 
To win 
I'm still standing 

We're the willing and departing 
It's my ocean 
I'm brave 
I'm broken 
I'm writing from the hull 
Stronger than I ever was before 

You haunt me 
You haunt me 

There's a cost to war 
Gun is warm 
Half dead and half won 
We go on ....
