Cut And Run Lyrics

Heard the call for more and morewith old bloodstains
still on my floor
my dog still don't remember me
busy being all that he can be
just one more push I heard you say
and we'll finally win the day
but my children seem to need me too
what's a patriotic boy to do?
Benchmarks, surges, shock and awe
no time to let the cold war thaw
a soldier without things to shoot
like a Garden of Eden with no fruit
temp me not with flag or words
from your lips it sounds absurd
my daddy fought your Asia war
something else you'll have to answer for
If you don't cut
I won't run
take off my shoes
put down your gun
look yonder at the setting sun
surely there's enough
for everyone
Will we say that liquid in the ground
is what has us honor bound
to follow orders come what may
that'll surely ruin another's day
even smart bombs have been known to be
as dumb as those in an SUV
for the cheerleaders standing on the side

c'mon with me we'll take a ride
Lets trade places for a week
if supporting me is what you seek
come dismantle some IED's
see what it's like to intercede
in somebody else's civil war
it's blood and guts and grime and gore
and dreams of home under desert sky's
another head full of wonder why's
If you don't cut
I won't run
take off my shoes
put down your gun
look yonder at the setting sun
surely there's enough
for everyone
This war...this war is killing me
when you close your eyes and still you see
and nothing can quite stop the screams
from coming to you deep in dreams
I once thought I knew who I was
now I do things just because
the world is turned upside down
and made me the talk of my hometown
If you don't cut
I won't run
take off my shoes
put down your gun
look yonder at the setting sun
surely there's enough
for everyone
