Thanks Dad Sorry Mom Lyrics

by Time

If pain is a mind state then I'm trapped in Texas
With an empty bottle of Percocet
And a wrinkled brow folded with regret
Shadow displaying a slouched silhouette
With curse words behind me and a casted off taken for granted sunset
Teeth chattering, from amnesia
Living a moment my memory with dilute
Atrophied tongue, with a swollen ankle and a pair of crutches
For a pair of feet touching a yellow brick substitute
Floating from the numbness while the moths keep hitting near my light bulb
I got an IV of life and more tape on me then a broken window
Bladder paralyzed, the sunshine peels my fermented skin
Bolts in my kneecap, wrench in the trash
Tyler Dirten's laughing
Eggs for breakfast and lost time for dessert
But these children keep hatching
My eyes look like raccoons, flesh under my nails
And blood on my pillow from the scratching

This is life, this is life, it's so fun
This is life, this is life, I have none
This is life, this is life, it's so fun
This is life, this is life, I have none

I took a leap of faith and they found me on the rocks
My clock doesn't tick it's just a bunch of tocks
I'm going here and there, but I'm standing still
The people walk on by just looking for a thrill
They're looking here and there to rise above the dim
They don't even realize they have to look within
To ride your highs and endure your lows
As long as coasting nothing will change that's just the way it goes

Now, forewarned is forearmed but I only have two

Ones usually in a cast and deflated lungs got me feeling blue
Pliers on molars, assistant holding my tongue back
Teeth falling out but I'll never get a gum graph
Hospital rooms echo with silence
And to make a living I slave in the basement
Yawning in doctors' offices, painting myself with patience
Let my retinas constrict to the glow
Slit me ear to ear and watch my smile grow
There's paper cranes in the sky and metal birds making clouds
Almost had my life paid for
Now I'm wrapped in a blanket of shame but my parents are still proud
Everyone else is a landmine for heartbreak
But I keep stepping on backs with a bloody knee
And my ears ringing from the explosions
And I keep a brace around my Achilles
Cause I don't like babies and never trusted a Trojan
And when my voice gets hoarse from the yelling
I strap a saddle on until laryngitis takes full effect
Gallop off the cliff and ride into the ocean until my scalp is wet

I took a leap of faith and they found me on the rocks
My clock doesn't tick it's just a bunch of tocks
I'm going here and there, but I'm standing still
The people walk on by just looking for a thrill
They're looking here and there to rise above the dim
They don't even realize they have to look within
To ride your highs and endure your lows
As long as coasting nothing will change that's just the way it goes

This is life, this is life, it's so fun
This is life, this is life, I have none
This is life, this is life, it's so fun

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

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
