The Lyrics

this was partially inspired by "Jarhead"
It looks good here from Baghdad
'Cause I'm a marine
I sit in a metallic slick, fly around
RPG's
I scan along the horizon
And think of sweet Ashley
I might die in my slow-@$$ shot up jeep
From forces unseen
It feels good in this drink, eat, no sleep
Talk is cheap, war reverie
I get high on my attitude
Altitude, While I dodge IEDs
Well, ain't that neat?

That shed's on fire and I hear screams
Bury the dead or then they'll say that
We're obscene

Oh... Just stay calm
Oh... While they bomb
Oh... Just stay calm
Oh... While they bomb

That shed's on fire and I hear screams
Shoot punks then clean
My magazine
Practice my reflex moves, be a machine
Bury the dead or then they'll say that
We're obscene

We had to knock a few buildings over
And make an ugly mess
I had to fill a casket with some pissant
And then there came the press
He came to write the great American novel
Just like a new junk bond
He came to dance and probably sing
For the aid of Bush's son

Well, wake up! (wake up!)
Wake up! (wake up!)

I threw up when I saw what he'd done

Oh... Just stay calm
Oh... While we bomb

That shed's on fire and I hear screams
Shoot punks then clean
My magazine
Practice my reflex moves, be a machine
Yeeeaaaaahhh!!!
I'd rather be anywhere
Other than this scene

[2x]
I've had enough
I've seen enough
I've had it all
I'm giving up
We have erased
The one corrupt
But through it all
We ****ed it up

Yeah, ironic
Hegemonic
What a joke
I'm done...
See ya
In North Korea
Fresh meat
Get some

That shed's on fire and I hear screams
Shoot punks then clean
My magazine
Practice my reflex moves, be a machine

[3x]
Yeeeaaaaahhh!!!
I'd rather be anywhere
Other than this scene

Yeeeaaaaahhhhh!!!!

WHEW! I'm DKTOS here and not familiar with "Jarhead" either, but I'm gonna trust you on the pacing of this and wherever you came up with the story-line it's a brute. Too real...5's ~ ~ ~

North Korea - and the rest of the Middle East to worry about

Thanks for the vote, 2Eagle. Yeah, it sucks that we're in this mess right now, but I guess Kim Jong Il decided we weren't paying him enough attention. He truly must be nuts doing missile testing while Bush is in office. If there was any administration eager to invade something at a moment's notice, it's this one. Getting rid of Kim would be a great idea if it weren't for the fact that he'd probably send a few nukes into Japan and South Korea before we finished him off.
