"Damage Done" as written by and Butch Hancock....
i stand before you even in my sleep with wide open eyes
to tell you things about yourself you might not recognize
like how we fight for love or money and how we fight for fun
and how we sometimes fight just to see some damage done

lady liberty talked in cirlces and tongues while the boys all fought for you
we thought you were all beaty and truth and we see you thought so too
you told us time and time again that the best is yet to come
but the more you talked the less you saw of the damage done

born and bred to push your luck out to the edge of town
over unmarked graves you swore you'd try to live your legend down
headlong into battlefields you broke into a run
to take part in and be part of the damage done

desert shields and dirty deals and thin lines drawn in dust
send half a million men to save some oil in the sand my god in cars we trust
the worst is not the bodycount nor battles lost and won
it's in the hearts of those who fail to feel the real damage done

desert stormsvcall to arms call it what you will
one nation out from under god with justice standing still
noriega north and nixon now like father and like son
one steps aside one steps right in to carry on the damage done

wayward war tours turns into a full time occupation
i guess the less said the better about a kinder gentler nation
cause once you tasted power and blood its easier to aim your gun
to fire away and walk away fro the damage done

oil rigs elections and oil stains our hands
soon we'll have a mighty pipeline flowing across afghanistan
one day in hell two towers fell what's lost can never be won
by war on war adding terror to the damage done
