lyrics

Said I went to go see the man with my plan
Won't you please take me to Afghanistan
What I read sounds so sublime
I hear the poppies near Kabul this time of year are mighty fine
I couldn't take it no more
I though I was going to have to eat through the floor
Get a job or go to college—no
I'm going to war
So I shipped out quick and I shipped out green
Lowest life form my lt.'d ever seen
Slept on watch and they closed the wire
Looks like I'm gonna spend the night entire
Left out in the cold with my rifle

Well the chain of command sure is long
The sergeant told the lt. told the colonel I was gone
On the loose in Kunduz, I'm a trip
And I got my 16 and, like, 18 clips
Made my way at night time stood still
Right way wrong way bazaar downtown
Almond eyes pull me down
If looks could kill, hers will
Took me home to meet her dad
He wasn't someone I wanted to see
He's the ace of spades in the colonel's deck
Looks like I have to be
Left out in the cold with my rifle

Left out
I'm working on my ends
Held back
Remembered my weapons
Forgot
I'm working on my ends
Lost track
Remembered my weapons

Left out in the cold with my rifle

He served me tea, received his clan
Cousins trying to live as best they can
Grow some kush, herd some goats
Infidel's up in here so that we can have the vote
I heard a buzz far away
I wondered is this gonna be my dying day
He said, "Son smoke this, it's OK"
Woke up in trouble in a pile of rubble
Drone boys brought it down
Now it's never dull and I'm never bored
Round here now they call me "warlord"
Left out in the cold with my rifle

Left out
I'm working on my ends
Held back
Remembered my weapons
Forgot
I'm working on my ends
Lost track
Remembered my weapons

Left out in the cold with my rifle

Left out
I'm working on my ends
Held back
Discharged my weapon
Forgot
I'm working on my ends
Lost track
Discharged my weapon

Left out in the cold with my rifle
