Okay, so there wasn't any reason
Okay, so there wasn't any rhyme
We spent a lot of ammunition
Okay, so a lot of people died
And some among our sons and daughters
Bravely lost their legs and arms
And some folks made a lot of money
Someplace far away from harm

But let's not all start acting crazy
Let's not off and lose our heads
I'm sure there's some good explanation
I'm sure it couldn't be that bad

And this is how
It happens here

Okay, so things got a little nasty
Things got a little out of hand
Not sure that I would call that torture
Not sure I fully understand
Somewhere somebody's son or daughter
Asked to be allowed to die
Maybe that's just how things happen
It's not for me to wonder why

So let's not all start acting crazy
Keep your knee under control
I'm sure that someone's got an answer
Something that they simply haven't told

And this is how
And this is how
And this is how
It happens here

Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?

Okay, so we heard a lot of rumors
Someone told me something bad
Someone said our leaders turned against us
Someone told me we'd been had
But none of that no longer matters
Now we're in another war
We shouldn't talk like this in public
This ain't the land it was before

Yeah, let's not all start acting crazy
I heard they took some folks away
Just sit tight and mind your business
I'm sure it'll all turn out okay

And this is how
And this is how
And this is how
And this is how
And this is how
It happens here

And this is how
It happens here
