The Lyrics

I am a Vietnam veteran
I fought with the Viet Cong
Handful of grenades but I can't help the fact that liberating Vietnam's wrong
I need medical attention fast, these wounds on my legs are real
But it's like no matter who I shoot, I can't convince you, the shrapnel makes my skin peel

So I'm hiding, watching you, falling back's what I need to do
Fade away in the shade cause it's hot
Need to take you out with one shot

I don't have my two legs anymore
Why did they amputate
I can't run no more
Mind can't heal the damage that's been done
Why did they torture me
You will lose the war

I am in a cell so secure
A little uncomforting
Cause they don't comprehend, I say what I know but sometimes it don't make sense
I can't ever hear what they say cause they always scream and shout
It's like no matter what I do I can't convince you for once just to hear me out

So I escape helping you turn the tide of the war so soon
Crying because the blade is so sharp
In a makeshift tent with some tarp (tarp, tarp, tarp, tarp...)


[Interrigator Voice]
Just give up now
You gonna have to tell us, like it or not
Speak now
We're tuned in now
You gonna have to tell us, like it or not
Speak now
[Back to Normal]

I don't feel the way I did before
They'll come looking for me
I won't be ignored


I can't feel
They hacked off both my legs
I can't walk around
Mind won't heal
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
