I get to drive his car ..I’ve betrayed his trust
Am F G G G
Who said life was fair..serve your country a must?

Michael used to work the late shift serving burgers at the mall
Am F G G
Hold the onions and hold that sauce once enlisted his job was lost
Am F G Am
He’s gone and out of sight makin’ the world safe for right
Am F G G
Now I order my food in Spanish, Pedro’s taken Michael’s spot

Am F G Am
Kill ‘em all for Allah - kill ‘em all for Christ
Am F G G
War feeds an economy built on greed
Am F G Am
I’m fat and happy in my world of order built on the backs of the poor naive soldier
Am F G G
Respect your maw mind your dad sometimes I feel like we’ve all been had


CHORUS C G F C
Bring back the soldiers light up the sky
C F G G
It’s all for a profit..not for you or I
C G F C
Count all your blessings asleep in your bed
C F G G
Find out tomorrow how many more are dead

When we preach only push and shove we lose an essential thing called love

Butter and guns how can that be? We’re broke and wasting all our kid’s destinies
