Now the war is over.
The boys are comin' home.
'Though they've signed the papers,
The battle rages on.
Hear the babies cryin'.
Hear the women moan.
Hear the liars tryin'
To cover up the bones.
Cast Away Stones.
Cast Away Stones.
Can't we just Cast Away Stones?

Somewhere in a gray house,
High up on a hill,
Jody heard the TV,
And her heart stood still.
Tommy's in the Army.
He's been gone too long.
Jody's in New Hampshire,
Living all alone.
Cast Away Stones.
Cast Away Stones.
Can't we just Cast Away Stones?

Now it doesn't really matter,
Where you draw the line.
That's where Jody drew hers,
And here's where I'll draw mine.
People listen to me.
I can't do this alone.
I tried to do it their way.
But now I'll try my own.
Cast Away Stones.
Cast Away Stones.
Can't we just Cast Away Stones.

Now we're in a time of peace,
Or so the papers say,
But Jody's heart will know no peace,
Until she sees his face.
Now the war is over,
But Jody's war goes on.
If no one will help her fight,
She'll fight it all alone.
Cast Away Stones.
Cast Away Stones.
Can't we just Cast Away Stones.

I was loading bombs in Asia, some of them nuclear, with the fascist Richard Nixon regime giving the orders, when I wrote this.
