The Lyrics

We knocked off Hussein
But this was a defeat in vain
The past was sure
But we can't do this anymore
It's months since we've been there
And now the fighting's gone nowhere
We gotta face
This ain't no better place

On this issue
It's the neocons to blame
On this issue... yeah
It's the neocons to blame

Counting the dead
And looking at the debts ahead
Can't anyone
Have said this was really dumb?
I look at the White House
And I can always hear them shout... misery
Not my country 'tis of thee

On this issue
It's the neocons to blame
On this issue
It's the neocons to blame

Beckoned to reign
I ask, "Is our country insane?"
Surely regressed
You can plainly see we're in a mess
Years have proved
To offer nothing in this coup
Peace is gone
But can we move on?

On this issue... yeah
It's the neocons to blame
On this issue... yeah
It's the neocons to blame
This issue...

We knocked off Hussein
But this was a defeat in vain
Gas through war
A mess we don't need here anymore
It's years that we'll be there
It's now a mission to nowhere
We gotta face
This ain't no better place
On this issue... yeah
On this issue

We need to leave this place
For this issue
It's the neocons to blame
On this issue... yeah
It's the neocons to blame
Oh this issue, yeah this issue
It's the neocons to blame
On this issue... yeah
It's the neocons to blame
They must have gone insane....

I got Degradation Trip finally. I am not impressed. This is good though.

Thanks for the vote, Red. You didn't like Cantrell's solo stuff? I don't know.... I guess the reason why I like his solo stuff so much is that I always preferred his voice over Layne Staley's.

This is good. I’m impressed. Far from a laughable subject, but it’s better than funny: It’s witty! I happened upon this site after looking-up the lyrics and confirming the words I thought I heard in "Missing.” My aural perception had not failed me (this time), but my attempt to grasp the logic behind “deserts missing the rain” has been abandoned. ;) Thank you! (I especially like the title/chorus.)
