BALLAD OF DUSTY Lyrics

by Rehab

Ohhh...yeah, yeah...yea boy...look a here...
Man, I done ten more lines than Etch-A-Sketch in my time
better catch you fetchin' by nine; better blast your right mind
if soft makes you feel hard; hard makes you feel soft
got a fifty, a pack of cigarettes, a brew and a cough
and I've been doin' this stuff from often to off and on
I've been face down all alone in the rain in the early mornin'
next wife into alimony, it goes on and on and on it
dog-gone it I've been on it so long I'm my only opponent
should've know it, I know I had a ring but I had to pawn it
I had to hold it; I stole it off of the top of a toilet
from a friend, for my sins, fingerprints are in a folder
that the police holds; I get colder as I get older, y'all
I don't want to live and I don't want to die
I just have to laugh 'cause I don't want to cry
My mother left me alone and I never met my dad
I've been abnormal since birth tryin' to wreck the pad
I've was raised by my Gramps since I was three years old
and all I ever wanted, was to be out of control
I made a clever disguise, became brilliant with lies
and pretended that I loved everything I despised
I worked hard to be liked and over did it at times
to much pressure to walk the line, so I committed some crimes
dropped out of school in the ninth; ran into cooler than I
had the weed, brews and pints and friends that love to fight
the fools that I beat-up and all the times that I got beat down
I got reputation always desired; now I'm tired
I don't want to live and I don't want to die
I just have to laugh 'cause I don't want to cry
I'm always rhymin' on the break down; 'cause all I do is break down
when nobody's lookin', tears runnin' like greyhounds
my remedy is to clown, laugh and talk garbage
'cause what's really goin' on is the 18-wheeler of baggage
imagine a whole lineage of illiage, drug-addicts and idiots, mental patients,
my family tree is straight insidious like it was water with alcohol
but I wouldn't have it any other way; I love y'all!
I don't want to live and I don't want to die
I just have to laugh 'cause I don't want to cry
I don't want to live and I don't want to die
I just have to laugh 'cause I don't want to cry
I don't want to live and I don't want to die
I just have to laugh 'cause I don't want to cry
I don't want to live and I don't want to die
I just have to laugh 'cause I don't want to cry

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

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
