"Bringing Us Down" as written by and Harrison Haynes Tim Harrington....
You're bringing us down
You're bringing us down
You're bringing us down
Hear the symphony in the five man band

Trying to sympathize but you can't understand
Set my mind to interbarometer
Move so slow from desk to dresser
It fell down without a sound

It took five years just to get down
Who put up the flag?
We haven't got a door yet
If they storm the fort tonight leave the pistol by your bed

We have jeopardized our situation
Disengage the ammunition
We are on a mercy mission
Bringing us down

Who put up the flag?
We haven't got a door yet
If they storm the fort tonight take the pills beside your bed
Jeopardized our situation

Disengage the ammunition
We are on a mercy mission
Take away the golden epaulettes
From the fallen dead cadets

Let's arrange it as their epitaph
Throw the bodies in the acid bath
Drag the sea coast and go for the gusto
The man with the plan said the foreman must go

If the chief don't fight let the chief go ahead
The squad and the scout will stay in bed
If the chief says jump I'll say “not I”
If the chief says jump I'll say “how high?”

    General CommentYou've done a good job, mind if I make a few corrections though?
    'Here in the symphony of the five man band' is really 'hear the symphony of the five man band.'

    and instead of 'if they storm the floor tonight' it's 'if they storm the fort tonight.'

    'For the bodies in the acid bath' is 'throw the bodies in the acid bath'

    I have no idea what the meaning might be.
