Song Rating: 9.36/10

Song lyrics:

Well, daddy joined the Air Force
Said it was a good source
Danger, love, and money, but it only led to divorce
Ended up in Abilene
Working at a Dairy Queen
Put me in the Army on the day that I turned seventeen
Here I am standin in the desert with a gun
Thought of going AWOL but Im too afraid to run
So I got myself a new plan
Stealin from the Taliban
Make a little money turning poppies into h**n
Sergeant didnt like it so they put me in a hole
I said, Its easy shootin when they dont know where to go.
Threw me on a lily pad
Sent me home to NORAD
I knew Id be in trouble but I didnt think it be this bad.

Stranger wearin all black
Met me on the tarmac
Told him I was sorry but I aint ever going back
He said, you aint in trouble son
Learn to fight without a gun
Got a new a**ignment now, youre working for the Pentagon
Gonna take a trip, wouldnt tell me what its for
Gotta serve your country, gonna help us win the war
MIT, PhD.s, night & day, theyre testing me
Aint what I was thinking but Im being all that I can be
I aint no genius but I knew it wasnt right
Eating uppers in the morning and LSD at night
Send me off to deep space
Help em win the arms race
Ola me, oh mighty, but this sh** has got a funny taste.

I think I hear the countdown

Hundred feet above the ground
Told me when Im leavin but anothing bout acoming down
Sittin on a bad dream
Thousand pounds of gasoline
Aint leavin nothing but some rubble and my slipstream
Mama always said, I should be aimin for the moon
Never wouldve guessed that Id be pa**in by soon
How the helld I get here?
Blastin through the atmosphere
Drop the rocket boosters and Im shiftin into high gear.
Bowie on the system and a bottle on my knee
Armstrong aint got nothing on me
Hey ho, here we go
Someone wanna get me, gotta come up where the sun dont go.

I think I see a bright light
Something bout it aint right
I laid down in a space ship
Woke up in a fire-fight
Trippin from the morphine
Came down in a bad scene
God, dont let me die here, I aint even nineteen
I wont ever ask you, Lord for anything again
Ill swear it on the Bible, Torah or Koran
Lyin in a rhino track
Bout to have a heart attack
IED got to me, someone call the Medevac
I need some fixin after where it is Ive been
Never wanna go and try and shoot a gun again
Slippin out the back door
Gonna join the Peace Corps
Tell me, Im a hero now, so
Someone else can fight this war
