  • Lyrics: I was taken in on account that I don't want to go to war And I was trying to tell you that my beliefs are what I do but there ain't nothing that's worth killing forI know we disagree but we act like everything's fine But now I'm really glad to tell you that I'm really mad I'm done pretending like these problems are mineI don't need you to know This ain't no give and take this ain't no quid pro quoI was thrown in jail on account that I know who I am But these words that I am writing are not getting up and fighting they're just making a quiet standI know I've done some things I might not have in retrospect But when I look back and I see them I would only want to keep them Because I haven't finished living yetI don't need you to know This ain't no mistake this ain't no leaving homeI was shipped off to spend days cutting big old trees And all the time I was complying while the government was lying That's the moment I was finally freedI know that I can't speak for all of us or any other living soul But there are things I will discussand there are things that I will trust and there are things that I don't need you to knowI don't need you to know 'Cause I can make it, I can make it on my ownIt's such a good feeling.
