    Hell Broke Luce

    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
    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
    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
    Left, right, left

    Kelly Presutto got his thumbs blown off
    Sergio’s developing a real bad cough
    Sergio’s developing a real bad cough
    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 a beautiful parade instead
    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
