Never saw a tumbleweed until today
if they could smoke the stuff then they'd make it pay
but there's no more reason to come to town
unless you enjoy watching things fall down
It's a ghost town
It's a ghost town
and when the wind rips through
it always blowing at you
It's a ghost town

So I signed my name for Uncle Sam
he promised me the world and to build a man
And I have to say he kept his word
went to Baghdad and had my childhood blurred
came back to a Ghost town
came back to a Ghost town
did my time and got off the plane
and this place still looked the same
It's a ghost town

against the suicide bombers and the IEDs
we got whores and needles and gangs and thieves
hopeless apparitions sleep where they lay
we got a war for you down here everyday
It's a ghost town
It's a ghost town

Call Rumsfeld at the Pentagon
alert Bush and Cheney about this going on
you want nation building I'll tell you son
to folks down here DC has cut and run
they left a ghost town
they left a ghost town
bars on windows still whole
technicalities and parole
It's a ghost town
It's a ghost town

against the suicide bombers and the IEDs
we got whores and needles and gangs and thieves
hopeless apparitions sleep where they lay
we got a war for you down here everyday

It's a ghost town
It's a ghost town
and when the wind rips through
it always blowing at you
It's a ghost town
It's a ghost town
