Lyrics

I got a head full of heavy my hearts losing hope
I’m a shot away from swinging on a rope
My legs don’t work I’m the working poor
Thanks to your precious war

They caught me on the backward slide
I was begging for work on the welfare line
I saw those planes explode the year before
I caved and joined their war

Now you can stick your drill in every hole
And you can rape the land and feed your soul
Use some down and outer like me
To try and force democracy on the third world poor
With your precious war

They taught me how to kill a man
They taught me how to use the sand
Until they found this bloody mess on the dessert floor
A casualty of war

So honey take the kids and catch the train
I’m not going to be your ball and chain
Shelter them from all this pain before
They’re forced to feel my war

And you can stick your drill in every hole
And you can rape the land and feed your soul
Use some down and outer like me
To try and force democracy on the third world poor
On the third world poor
With your precious war

I got a head full of heavy my hearts losing hope
I’m a shot away from swinging on a rope
My legs don’t work I’m the working poor
Thanks to your precious war
