Slow Decay - Dashboard Confessional

Stand down, son
Start resting easy
You've done your service
I am proud to have you home
And see you safe
It's so good
You look so strong
In that picture on the mantel
You sent your mom when you were gone
But you look scared now,
Hollow-eyed
When are you coming
When are you coming

Back where you belong
I swear that it's safe here
Theres nothing to fear at all
Come on back where you belong
The pressure releases
If you just put down your gun

Everything rests on you
You know that feeling well
The ball is falling
Falling
Falling
So far from a close call
Your injuries aren't mortal wounds
The only thing that's killing you
Is what you saw and what you couldn't stop
But you're not the one I blame
It wasn't your mistake
But you're safe now so come on

Back where you belong
I swear that it's safe here
Theres nothing to fear at all
Come on back where you belong
The pressure releases
If you just put down your gun

It's the simple things Dad,
I'm not hurt
I'm not dead
I just should be where my friends are lying
And I didn't hate those that I killed
But they're all dead now
And I'm here alive
With satellites
And Friday nights
And no one to judge me
For the things that I've done at all
So how can I live with that

Back where I belong

Take me back where I belong
You swear that it's safe here
There is nothing to fear at all
Take me back where I belong
The pressure releases
If I just put down my gun
