SOCIAL DISASTER Lyrics

by Regurgitator

Social disaster, sad young bastard
Used to feel alone 'cos I didn't get plastered
But I'm past it though I still ask it
How long is this shit going to last?

It doesn't get me down like it used to
'Cos now, I'm used to hanging with a drugged crew
A select fucked few that I speak shit to
When I'm in the mood to mingle at the venue

Gotta get fucked up, just to get the guts up
Reality shuts up, now you can throw your butts up
I'll be the poor straight fuck in the corner
Chewing on his tongue in the cigarette sauna

Ain't nothing but a social disaster

Damn, I feel, I should be drinking
This is not the place to be thinking
I'm here for the music 'cos it sounds wicked
Lyric plus melody but I can't pick it

Ringing in the ear, pain getting belligerent
Smelling like a beer, stain smoking a cigarette
Having a good time is giving me illness
Think I'll head outside and soak up some stillness

Not that I'm jaded
Just unrelated to this inebriated
Ego inflated culture that you love, don't ya?
Well, don't ya? Ha

I'm a tall poppy, so you better lop me
Held me like a baby, then go and drop me
You say, I sound like this, I sound like that
I sound like whoever at the drop of a hat

I'm sorry, I'm generic, just grin and bear it
Spend it if you can spare it, strap it on and wear it
Purchase a credo that doesn't have to last
Supplement your ego with this piece of plastic

Ethical crisis, here's good advice says
Sell your sorry soul, and get a nice price for it
Now that it's done, let's have some fun
That's the priority, a number one, a number one

Ain't nothing but a social disaster
Ain't nothing but a social disaster
Ain't nothing but a social disaster

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
