I'd just come down from the mountain a happy man
Turned on the television, should've chewed off my hand
I'm sick of all the false glory: In God we trust
Show me one dollar bill that hasn't passed through the cuss

And if you break my will
I will come back again
To destroy everything you stood for

Oh yeah,
I will go on, like a soldier
Through the storms of love
And I'll take you back,
Take you away from here, my friend
They charge you up again

I'd just come down from the mountain
Where the breezes were blowin'
And everything was glowin' like some tree in the bush
(Yip-yip-ah-yip-ah-yeehaw)
Still I've gotta live my life here
With some pretty scary brethren
But now I'm forever on a mission, baby
To live and die by my smile.

And if you break my will
I will come back again
To destroy everything you stood for

Oh yeah,
I will go on, like a soldier
Through the storms of love
And I'll take you back,
Take you away from here, my friend
We charge you up again [Repeat x3]
Yeah,

Let's go to Ray's, not to Pizza Hut
Let's go to the Pig, not to Starbucks
Let's vote for Nader
What are we waiting for?
I'm gonna live to be a hundred and sixty-four
To the crib and back to the studio
To write a song so good, make a midget grow
From the North pole down to Mexico
If you don't know the words, fuck it, let's go

I will go on, like a soldier
Through the storms of love
And I'll take you back,
Take you away from here, my friend
We charge you up again [Repeat x3]
