2 + 2 = ?

Yes, it's true I am a young man, but I'm old enough to kill
I don't wanna kill nobody, but I must if you so will
And if I raise my hand in question, you just say that I'm a fool
'Cause I got the gall to ask you: can you maybe change the rules?
And you stand and call me upstart, ask what answer can I find?
I ain't saying I'm a genius, 2+2 is on my mind
2+2 is on my mind


Well, I knew a guy in high school, just an average friendly guy
And he had himself a girlfriend and you made them say goodbye
Now he's buried in the mud of a foreign jungle land
And his girl just sits and cries, she just doesn't understand
So you say he died for freedom, well, if he died to save your lives
Go ahead and call me yellow, 2+2 is on my mind
2+2 is on my mind

All I know is that I'm young and your rules they are old
If I've got to kill to live, then there's something left untold
I'm no statesman, I'm no general, I know that I'll never be
It's the rules, not the soldier, that are my real enemy

I'm no prophet, I'm no rebel, I'm just asking you why
I just want a simple answer, why it is I've got to die?
I'm the simple minded kind, 2+2 is on my mind
2+2 is on my mind
2+2 is on my mind
2+2 is on my mind
2+2 is on my mind
2+2 is on my mind
