you thought uncle sam wanted you
but you were used, you were just abused
I try to tell you time and time again
the only war worth winning is the war thats within

you played right into uncle sams hands
where is the glory in complying with demands
you were used to defend world dominitation
where is the honor in being an abomination?

and I dont see the glory in your war stories
it was just your turn to burn and get burned

you thought that you had something to prove
but yer just seeing colors, not red & white just blue
your whole life has always been the same
first you were tamed then you were ashamed
* you played right into uncle sams hands
where is the glory in complying with demands
you were used to defend world dominitation
where is the honor in being an abomination?

* and i dont see the glory in your war stories
it was just your turn to burn and get burned

    General CommentI think he's saying don't be proud that you were a veteran. Since you helped to kill thousands of innocent people and were just a pawn for the government don't think that you're some kind of fucking hero.

    General CommentI love Choking V and LoC as much as the next guy, but most veterans announce it because they had no choice, or they joined because they didn't have an understanding of what was going on since they were lied to.

    Lemmie tell you, livin' all over, Army Recruiters target poorer communities, and if they say 'free college' 'grant money' and all other benefits most people that sign up truly believe they're just keeping the people safe. I won't say fuck the veterans, but I will go with Ezra and say "Fuck the Army, Join the Anti"
