I had a good home but I left
I had a good home but I left, right, left
That big fucking bomb made me deaf, deaf
A Humvee mechanic put his Kevlar on wrong
I guarantee you’ll meet up with a suicide bomb
Hell broke luce
Hell broke luce

Big fucking ditches in the middle of the road
You pay a hundred dollars just for fillin’ in the hole
Listen to the general, every goddamn word
How many ways can you polish up a turd?
Left, right, left, left, right, left, right
Hell broke luce
Hell broke luce
Hell broke luce
How is it that the only ones responsible for making this mess got their sorry asses stapled to a goddamn desk?
And hell broke luce
Hell broke luce
Left, right, left
What did you do before the war?
I was a chef, I was a chef
What was your name?
It was Geoff, Geoff
I lost my buddy and I wept, wept
I come down from the meth so I slept, slept
I had a good home but I left, left

Pantsed at the wind for a joke
I pranced right in with the dope
Glanced at her shin, she said, “Nope, pope”
Left, right, left
Nimrod Bodfish, have you any wool?
Get me another body bag, the body bag’s full
My face was scorched, scorched
I miss my home, I miss my porch, porch
Left, right, left
Can I go home in March? March
My stanch was a chin full of soap
That rancid dinner with the pope
And left, right, left
Kelly Presutto got his thumbs blown off
Sergio’s developing a real bad cough
Sergio’s developing a real bad cough
And hell broke luce
Hell broke luce
Hell broke luce

”Boom’, went his head away and, “Boom” went Valerie
What the hell was it that the president said?
Give him all a beautiful parade instead
And left, right, left
When I was over here I never got to vote
I left my arm in my coat
My mom she died and never wrote
We sat by the fire and ate a goat
Just before he died he had a toke
Now I’m home and I’m blind and I’m broke
What is next?
