lyrics

Dear mama,
I just wanted to let you know
Mama, I just wanted to say that I miss you,
and I can't wait to get back home

Did they talk about us on the news today?

Did they tell everybody how we are fighting for your freedom?
Mama, this uniform gets so warm in the desert sun
Don't worry mama my machine gun will keep me cool
At least until the storm has begun

With every breath
The truth becomes clearer
Falsified in this depraved theater
Round we and round we go
I can't hear you...

With every step
the lie becomes weaker
falsified in this depraved theatre
round and round we go
I can't hear you

And you play along
You sing that song
March to the drums of war and fear in this

This deception
Communication
is lost in all the smoke and mirrors

Dear mama my blood is drying in these desert sands
I'm not sure
but I think I took a shot

Everything is spinning, I'm getting dizzy it's hard to breathe
The desert sun is getting hot
Don't worry mama my machine gun is getting cool
and I've lost the urge to write

but mama

does it comfort you to know this,
that the box that I come home in

will be dressed in stars and stripes?

With every step
the lie becomes weaker
falsified in this depraved theatre
round and round we go
I can't hear you

With every breath the truth becomes clearer
Falsified in this depraved theatre
Round and round we go
I can't hear you say....

And you play along
You sing that song
March to the drums of war and fear in this

This deception
Communication
is lost in all the smoke and mirrors
