ROLL WITH IT


She says my ass hurts
When I sit down
She says my feet hurt
When I’m standing around
I think my body
is as restless as my mind
and I don’t know if I can
Roll with it this time

she packed his uniforms
and drove him to the base
she was crying all the way
the world looked her in the face

and said, roll with it baby
make it your career
keep the home fires burning
till america is in the clear

the mainstream
is so polluted with lies
once you are wet
it’s so hard to get dry

we are all taught how to justify
history as it passes by
and yes, it’s your world
that comes crashing down

when the big boys
want to throw their weight around
but just roll with it baby
make it your career
keep the home fires burning
till america is in the clear

but what if the enemy
isn’t in a distant land
what if the enemy lies behind
the voice of command
the sound of war
is a childs cry
behind tinted windows
they just drive by

and all I know is that those
that are going to be killed
aren’t those that preside
on capital hill
I told him don’t fill
the front lines of their war
those assholes aren’t worth dying for

but he said roll with it baby
make it your career
keep the home fires burning
till america is in the clear

she says my ass hurts
when I sit down
she says my feet hurt
when I’m standing around
I think my body
is as restless as my mind
and I’m not gonna roll with it this time
