I've got a question
I've got a question

Where are the weapons of mass destruction?
We been lookin' for months and we ain't found nothin'
Please Mr. President, tell us something
We knew from the beginning that your ass was bluffing

How unfortunate, it wasn't what you thought it kid, in basic training
They taught you how to slay man as a start-up kit
And you showed up with a gun to load up
Hopin' a college education's waitin', maybe a steady occupation
Now you're weighing many lives against yours
President orders, got you on course, with holocaust, Sargent is lost
General's boss, plans cross, now you in the crosshair
Of a sniper's shaky scared, shot off your ear
All fucked up down, one round just hit him in his from some young yet expendable citizen
He's from the other side of the line, fightin' for time
Time to see his kids walk, time to talk with his pop
Time to have a rational thought without the thought of bein' shot
(Damn) his gun jammed now you gotta bombart
It's a soldier's suicide slide know you tried hard to stay alive
When you're catching fire from both sides
And we miss you at home, it's time the government truly left you alone
Dropped you off and popped one in your dome
Now we've seen it in Iraq and the Congo, America's motto
"Kill their leader then we make a stronghold!!"

Where are the weapons of mass destruction?
We've been lookin' for months and we ain't found nothin'
Please Mr. President, tell us something
We knew from the beginning that your ass was bluffing

Where are the weapons of mass destruction?
We've been lookin' for months and we ain't found nothin'
Please Mr. President, tell us something
We knew from the beginning that your ass was bluffing

I never thought of this the day that I enlisted
That I'd be dodging bullets, seekin' weapons that never even existed
For someone else's personal beef, I risk myself
While the Commander-in-Chief, would never come to fight himself
I feel I'm bein' tricked even worse that the civilians
Nobody ever told me that we would be killin' children
Feelin' like the ones that sent me here are the psychotics
But if I say that out loud, I'm "unpatriotic"
But would Donald Rumsfeld back me up with the chrome?
Would Tom Ridge fight or would he stay secure back home?
And would Condoleeza Rice cover grenades in a fox hole?
I'm startin' to believe what I was told is not so
What's the reason for the war?
I'm shootin' at these people that I got not animosity for
I wonder if I'm just a pawn in someone else's struggle
Or a here even though I'm just a small piece of the puzzle
I know that when I finally return where I reside
I'll make up for the months my wife and moms cried
And carry on for all my fallen brothers who died
see, you can't take my pride, 'cause I'm a fuckin' soldier

Where are the weapons of mass destruction?
We been lookin' for months and we ain't found nothin'
Please Mr. President, tell us something
We knew from the beginning that your ass was bluffing

Where are the weapons of mass destruction?
We been lookin' for months and we ain't found nothin'
Please Mr. President, tell us something
We knew from the beginning that your ass was bluffing
