lyrics

I board the train tonight to run from the man that appends all these years on our lives to make us wise. I was convinced I was not innocent until tonight when the truth, with a flare, burnt the scales that were paired to my eyes and wrung them dry. Would someone please hit the pause button now that I'm here? Would someone please hit the pause button åcause I'm scared. And, no I don't want to grow up and take on a world that is so much bigger than I had ever known. I'm just a child. I killed a man tonight. It was my first time in battle for the country that asked me to fight, so I fight. I cannot shake from my brain what I saw in his eyes. In the moments I scoped out the shots that would finish his life my soul died. Would someone please hit the pause button now that I'm here? Would someone please hit the pause button cause I'm scared. And, no I don't want to grow up and take on a world that is so much bigger than I had ever known. I'm just a child. I'm just a kid and I don't want to grow up fast, I just want to keep my shades on. I'm just a kid. No I don't wanna grow up fast, I just want to keep my shades on. I'm just a kid and I don't want to drive your guns, but I believe saving freedom. I'm just a kid, but now I have to grow up fast, so let's hit play and save the children, our children, from this.
