Trench warfare dug in deep brutal bloody No retreat
American dead better than red another politician with a debt on his head
Bodies ripped covered in shit Napalm blitz the City is lit
Bombs blast mustard gas throat slash truncheon smash
Another story about another dead American...
One more story about a dead American.
Blitzkrieg flames buildings ablaze killings fields where the bodies decay
Torture racks machine gun racks never surrender it's an all-out attack
Money whores open soars plan quiet wars behind closed doors
Clandestine games human remains cyanide genocide
One more story about a dead American.

    General CommentThis song is a synthesis of all the 20th century wars WWI "Trench Warfare" WWII "Blitzkrieg" Vietnam and Napalm + fighting communism "domino theory". It also mentions the cold war "Clandestine" the innermost workings of the C.I.A. contains a clandestine service(The guy who died in Afghanistan Mike Spann) overall theme= U.S. soldier is a unit of measure and a commodity. Like Guns N Roses "Civil War" selling humans in a human grocery store.

    General Commentyeah, Lars and tha bastards are great, but this band is a "sideproject" of Lars Frederiksen and Matt freeman from Rancid. Lars Frederiksen and the bastard are uctually not a ordinary band. it's a kind of expriment. Lars and Matt "hired" the bastards - some people from different bands, don't know so much about them. so this cd is only a one-time thing. but who knows. there might come a second cd.
