Verse 1 This side, that side
We've got to find a middle ground to make it right
You turn us 'round, you burn us down
Start it up again when the end's in sight
Chorus You've made a battlefield out of my home
Take your weapons back and just leave us alone
We're not a country fully grown
Verse 2 You set a man up and you tear him down
We get cold, hard looks at the election scene
Bring in the old, tear down the new
But tell me - what are the people here going to eat?
Chorus When you've made a famine ground out of my home
Take your soldiers back and leave us alone
We're not a country fully grown
Bridge I saw the fires burning
When they took my village down
I heard the bullets roaring
And I'm so tired of that sound
Verse 3 You play the fools when you play with rules
And make your own division of wrong and right
No time for the scared, no time for the weak
No time for the family shot last night
Chorus 'Cause you've made a killing zone out of my home
Take your soldiers back and leave us alone
We're not a country fully grown

We're not a country fully grown
We're not a country fully grown
