Fighter jets came crashing down
Underwater dog fight
In the end they shared the ground
In the end nobody died
In the end nobody drowned
Those that did came back to life
The day the submarines took to the sky

No, no no that's not how it's done!
Where did you learn to play that way?
Grandpa knows it, he was there
Maybe you'll learn someday
Maybe just for now it's fine
Maybe just for fun this time
The day the submarines took to the sky

All these years, have I been wrong?
Children play war.
Was it a game all along?
I see them now
Through gun-smoke clouds
Had they bounced back?
The ones that I shot down?
