The Lyrics

Satire about the Bush Administration's recently-exposed, outrageous practice of shipping the bodies of slain U.S. Marines home from Iraq marked as "freight" on commercial airliners
In Iraq, it's all war-torn...
There's no master plan; Bush failed, you see.
He is cold... 'bout loss of life;
How they handled our... dead marines.

War has failed... for the Dim Son.
Oil impounded... for $ea of green.
Coffins flying back on planes...
In their cargo holds... our dead marines.

Shipped as freight were our dead U.S. marines,
Dead U.S. marines, dead U.S. marines.
Shipped as freight were our dead U.S. marines,
Dead U.S. marines, dead U.S. marines.

Right wing friends... were all aboard.
Sold his lies to them... to make war.
Has no plan... except to stay...
(instrumental riff)

Shipped as freight were our dead U.S. marines,
Dead U.S. marines, dead U.S. marines.
Shipped as freight were our dead U.S. marines,
Dead U.S. marines, dead U.S. marines.

Abu Ghraib; contractor sleaze;
Bush has lied to us... to service greed.
Has no clue, and won't be seen...
At the funerals of... dead marines.

Shipped as freight were our dead U.S. marines,
Dead U.S. marines, dead U.S. marines.
Shipped as freight were our dead U.S. marines,
Dead U.S. marines, dead U.S. marines.

Shipped as freight were our dead U.S. marines,
Dead U.S. marines, dead U.S. marines.
Shipped as freight were our dead U.S. marines,
Dead U.S. marines, dead U.S. marines.

(repeat chorus and fade)
