I had a good home but I left
I had a good home but I left
right - left
that big fuckin' bomb made me deaf, deaf
A Humvee mechanic put his Kevlar on wrong
I guarantee you meet him with a suicide bomb
and hell broke luce
hell broke luce

Big fuckin' ditches in the middle of the road
you'd pay a hundred dollars just for filling in the hole
listen to the general every goddamn word
how many ways can you polish up a turd
and left - right
left - left - right
hell broke luce, hell broke luce
hell broke luce

How is that the only ones responsible for making this mess
Got their sorry asses stapled to a goddamn desk
and hell broke luce, hell broke luce
left - right - left

What did you do before the war, I was a chef, I was a chef
What was your name it was Jeff, Jeff
I lost my buddy and I wept, wept
I come down from the meth so I slept, slept
I had a good home but I left, left

Pantsed at the wind for a joke
i pranced right in with the dope
glanced at her shins she said nope
left - right - left

...have you any any wool
get me another body bag, the body bag's full
my face was scorched, scorched
i miss my home i miss my porch, porch
left - right - left
Can I go home in March, march
My stance was a chin full of soap
Had rancid dinner with the Pope
and left - right - left
Kelly Persona got his thumbs blown off,
Sergio's developing a real bad cough
Sergio's developing a real bad cough
and hell broke luce, hell broke luce
hell broke luce

Boom went his head away
and boom went Bowery
what the hell was it that the president said?
give them all a beautiful parade instead
and left - right - left

While I was over here i never got to vote
I left my arm in my coat
my mom she died and never wrote
We sat by the fire and ate a goat
Just before he died he had a toke
Now I'm home and I'm blind and I'm broke
what is next?
