Stepped off the plane with my rifle in hand
I used my sword to blind my eyes from the sand
Its a post-apocalyptic wet t-shirt contest
Its spring break well I'm communally honest

Well I'm sold,
I do what I'm told
Defense contractor, dance party radio
Blood on my hands, sex on my mind
Taking shots of petrol
Tracers light the sky

And I met the right ones,
I joined a team
No tears americana, there's no blood left to bleed
And I counted notches in a belt
This blood makes pretty good sunscreen
When death's as hot as the sun

Well I'm sold,
I do what I'm told
Defense contractor, dance party radio
Blood on my hands, sex on my mind
Taking shots of petrol
Tracers light the sky

Daddy, I hope you're proud, I gave them my soul
I gave them my soul
Daddy, I hope you're proud, I gave them my soul
I gave them my soul

    My Interpretationi'm seeing it as another 'combat rock' song like the previous song on the album "Straight to Hell" (a cover of The Clash involving vietnam). It is drawing parallels between vietnam and more modern war in the middle east.
