    Words and music by John Kay, Michael Wilk and Rocket Ritchotte

    He was barely a man that morning when he got on that plane
    In his pocket some music and pictures of home
    A few days later he's lying in the jungle, beneath the pouring rain
    Listening to songs of freedom, feeling scared and alone

    Can anybody tell me why I'm here, where's the rhyme where's the reason
    It's all so crazy, it's madness over here, just who are we fighting for
    The guys back home, they're feelin' no pain,
    yeah, they're living and lovin'
    While we are flyin', dancin' and dyin' in this rock 'n roll war.

    Everything looked the same that morning, when he came home again
    In his baggage some medals and memories of war
    But he was different, changed forever and out of touch with time
    Walking the streets of home, he felt lost and alone

    Can anybody tell me where I am, I feel like a stranger
    Some call me hero, some have called me names, some don't call anymore
    I made it home, but I'm still in pain, I'm not livin' or lovin'
    For I'm still flyin', fightin' and dyin' in that Rock n' Roll war

    Tell everybody I feelin' better, It's been slow but I'm healing
    Through mother earth and father time, I don't hurt like before
    I love a good woman, we have a son, he's our joy, our salvation
    May he never fly in, fight in or die in some rock 'n roll war
    Tell everybody I'm doin' all right, yes, I'm livin' and lovin'
    For I'm done flyin', livin' and dyin' in that rock n' roll war.
