Boys, march into the war
To certain defeat, they were younger than me
Guns, poke through the trees
Death on a whim, they were aiming at him

And when the bullets came he didn't duck
He wrapped her pantyhose around his neck
And he could feel the magic working
Keeping him from harm, awaiting someplace mystical and warm
His lucky charm

He got caught, no cover at all
He breathe in her scent, not even a scratch
And he didn't die, when he stepped on a mine
They were violet and soft, it didn't go off

And when her letter came he didn't cry
He wrapped her pantyhose around his eyes
And he could feel the magic working
Keeping him from harm, even though she didn't love him anymore
Ya Can't kill a lucky charm

    Song MeaningThis song is definitely alluding to Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried, specifically the chapter "Stockings". It took me a while to realize it, but it definitely carries the tone and meaning of the pantyhose in this song. It's very hopeful and uplifting. It's very interesting to see the story of this chapter translated into song.
