Battle Hymn

Choose your words wisely
Have you forgotten how it feels?
Are you already on the defensive
Reeled back on your heels?
Listen to the dying embers
Enjoy how they crackle and pop
Someday soon we’ll dance on the moon
Karma is merely a mop

Is it too late to be famous
Trotted out like a circus horse?
Too late to be someone’s savior
Riding down on a collision course?
Is it too late to be someone else
Destined to be just like you?
Get your guns and songs together
Every fight we will win true

Tell your mother and your father
How you love and miss them so
Only in exasperation
May you truly ever know
Providence over persuasion
Science will not steal your soul
Onward to the new horizon
Now we’ve got someplace to go
