The Lyrics

Kind of a morose parody, but it's my tribute to all the brave men and women who returned from Iraq only to have our Gov't shuffle them to the back of everyone's mind.
My name is Luka
I fought the Iraqi War
I’ve got a medal too
Can’t remember what it was for
You hear me weeping late at night
But I’m no trouble when out of sight
Just look past me Bush he does
Just look past me Cheney does
They look past us just because

The nurses come and see me
Tell me that I should be proud
Miracle they even saved me
Living’s living any how
They say it’s good I didn’t die
And yet I sit and wonder why
They just don’t want us anymore
They shipped us off to go to war
They don’t want us anymore

Wounded show up all day
Casualties of war my friend
If you ask that’s what they’ll say
It’s not their children blown away
How many more are coming home
With missing limbs and broken bones
Don’t look past me here I am
Don’t look past me here I am
Don’t look past me here I am

My name is Luka
I fought the Iraqi War
I’ve got a medal too
Can’t remember what it was for
You hear us weeping late at night
We’re too much trouble, stay out of sight
Just look past us Bush he does
Just look past us Cheney does
They look past us just because

They say it’s good we didn’t die
And yet we all should wonder why
They just don’t want us anymore
They shipped us off to fight their war
We shouldn’t take it any more
