Joe is out of school, didnt fucking ask for much
couldnt get a job, the marines his last hope
down at the frontline, with a gun not a toy
kill many men, not asking what for


joe is off to die, for another snseless war
no arms, no legs - his mother cries at home
joey wears the flag, so proud to fight for us
and for a government, that doesnt give a fuck


joe is off to die, for another senseless war
no arms, no legs - his mother cries at home
joey wears the flag so proud to fight for us
and for a government, that doesnt give a fuck

marching to the left, marching to the righ
marching on the frontline, what a fucking sight
marching to the left, marching to the right
marching on the frontline, what a way to die

joey, joey, joey tell me what you see now
joey, joey, joey please come back home now

marching to the left, marching to the righ
marching on the frontline, what a fucking sight
marching to the left, marching to the right
marching on the frontline, what a way to die

    General CommentSo far, I have not heard one song by the casualties I haven't liked... I would've changed my name from Rancid to Casualties, but I made this name way before I heard of them.
