Far Enough

High enough, I'm not high enough
High enough, I'm not high enough

My Apache's too low, they're shootin stingers at me
A5           Bb5
I'm not high enough
I'm not high enough

        Bush sent me here to get Saddam
        I wish he'd send me home to chill with my mom
        lock and load and head to Baghdad
        I wish I was home hangin out with my dad
        Bush says support me here in Iraq
        he sent 100,000 body bags so I can go back
        travellin in style, zipped up tight
        come home in my bag under cover of night
        unreported casualty, video game war
        I'm not a man or a face, I'm just part of the score

Far enough, I'm not far enough
Far enough, I'm not far enough
D                    C
Iraqi fire in front, friendly fire behind
I'm not far enough
I'm not far enough

        Operation Desert Storm, a big success
        Freedom for the world and all the rest
        saved the King of Kuwait, all his oil and gold
        there's part of the story that has not been told
        how my brothers and sisters came back from the war
        with a mystery disease never seen before
        now it's 12 years later and the goverment denies
        there's a problem here, that the babies die

Far enough, I'm not far enough
Far enough, I'm not far enough
D                    C
breathin gas on the line, is it theirs or mine
I'm not far enough
I'm not far enough

        300,000 soldiers have Gulf War Syndrome
        the DVA says shut up and go home
        no universal health care for those who fought
        congress passed the law, Bush said NOT
        gotta pay for health care from their small pension
        there's one more point I got to mention
        Bush passed a law on day three
        No overtime for troops, just work for free
        If that's support, don't raise my bail
        I'll be sittin at home in a military jail
        I won't fight a war with Depleted Uranium
        poison gas and radiation knockin my cranium


Far enough, I'm not far enough
Far enough, I'm not far enough
D                    C
I can see Iraqi children when I drop my bombs
D                    C           
I'd rather watch the lies on CNN at home with my moms
