"Right In The Head" as written by and Matthew Stephen Ward....
I hope my little brother puts a call in today
I hope he don't forget where he came from
I hope he never has to deal with wrongin' someone

'Cause I lived with many ghosts when I was younger
And I will live with many ghosts until I go

[Chorus:]
I hope he's right in the head
I hope he's right in the head
I hope he's right in the head
Even if he has to wrong someone

[Chorus]

and I hope his guardian angel puts a gun in his hand
If ever they get ambushed or pursued
I hope she sticks around when he does dirty in this dirty duel he's brewed
And though the names will get changed to protect the innocent
He said, "I hope the names will get changed to protect me."

[Chorus: x2]

'Cause I lived with many ghosts when I was younger
And I will live with many ghosts until I go

    General CommentI heard him play this song live - and this is the real lyrics!
    "I hope she (the guardian angel) sticks around when he (the brother) turns 30 and this dirty tour of duty is through"

    My InterpretationI'm hearing "I hope she sticks around when he turns 30, and this dirty tour of duty is through".

    Totally makes sense in the context of the song. The lyrics above seem a bit meaningless and convoluted, given how straightforward the rest of the song is about a brother serving in the military.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the lyric is

    "I hope his guardian angel puts a gun in his hand, if ever they get ambushed or pursued. I hope she sticks around when he does dirty in this dirty, dirty duel he has brewed. And though the names will get changed to protected the innocent. And he said all the names will get changed to protect me."

    General CommentI have a feeling he might've changed it for the live version, 'cause I don't hear that in the song - though I do like that version, too.
