Lyrics

Green plastic pistol and red snouted rifle
Camouflage t-shirt, bandana and bicycle
Cul-du-sac laps in the midsummer blaze
Blood sports and war games are all that he plays

In the middle of nowhere forever ago
A middle school soldier, eleven years old
Madness and mayhem are all that he knows
In the middle of nowhere forever ago

Out through the window and into the darkness
Restlessly wandering neighborhood yards
And his heart is a hornet’s nest, too spooked to sleep
Daggers and demons in all of his dreams

In the middle of nowhere forever ago
A middle school soldier, eleven years old
Madness and mayhem are all that he know
In the middle of nowhere, forever ago

In the middle of nowhere, forever ago
A wild eyed child with no hand to hold
Living a life spinning out of control
In the middle of nowhere, forever ago

Sprinklers at dawn after all night exploring
Whispers of fog at the first light of morning
His eyes see the signs but his mind never reads
Barbed wire sunrise is all that he breathes

In the middle of nowhere, forever ago
A middle school soldier, eleven years old
Madness and mayhem are all that he knows
In the middle of nowhere, forever ago

In the middle of nowhere, forever ago
A wild eyed child with no hand to hold
Living a life spinning out of control
In the middle of nowhere, forever ago
