about

Sitting on Joe and Katie's porch - a fine summer day in the middle of a war in Iraq

lyrics

The school bus drives by
The police woman cries
The newlyweds laugh on the green
There's clouds in the east
And the tv says "Peace time is coming - you can all count on me."

And the honeymoon suites hear every heartbeat
while the graveyards can't meet with demand
And today's nearly done - It's a battle half won
Just as long as you're holding my hand

In the clock tower's eye
There's a coil they can't wind
It's all rusted but the bell still rings
And the mail came today
-said the youngest boy's safe,
and the mailman will have more news to bring

And the paving stones groan
with the ones who say "no one can speak for every man"
And today's nearly done - It's a battle half won
Just as long as you're holding my hand
