Army Life

lyrics

You know I never really wanted a job
that’s why you’ll still find me here
Instead of working at the 9 to 5
Adventure is my career

I do more before 3 a.m.
than most people do all day
A pint of sweat saves a gallon of tears
and be all that I can be

At night I go to war
against a tired indie scene
Breaking hearts and taking names
A tuxedoed killing machine

I want to live my entire life
like a soldier on weekend leave
Spend my money on foolish things
and wake up with Genevieve

The quiet civilian life
is not the life for me
I’ll be storming foreign lands
While you watch it all on TV

I got the guts got the discipline
got a manifest destiny
I got the uniform I got the boys (and girl!)
I’ll die for this country

Remember me remember me remember me
I’m going down
Remember me remember me remember me
I’m going down
I’m going down down down
I’m going down down down
I’m going down down down
I’m going down down down

Eddie Japan Boston

".. a contagious attitude of doing it up, and doing it up right that you can hear in the carnival swirls of ultra-melodic pop, latin-flavored bravado and cinematic ‘70s UK rock."
