M.I.D.

1st Verse
It don?t give me no comfort
to hear you telling me
what you make of the fear
from the things that I?ve seen

I pay my money,
An? I?ve been paying my way
To support your far-away games
Off in some foreign land
But I?ve been thinking
Get your head out the sand
Cause I can honestly say
With my heart in my hands
I see all my friends
Turn away from the lie
An now that I?m last
The road to heaven
Ain?t nowhere in sight

Chorus
I?ve always known what?s wrong with you
See, I ain?t never told a lie
So, now again, you?ve changed your tune
But you just cant tell me why
Don?t you remember me, no
You don?t remember me, why
Don?t you remember me
It?s a hard life but sometimes,
I?d like to have my peace of mind, so why
Don?t you remember me.

2nd Verse
I won?t have you make no doe-eyes at me
An coming over so sweet
To get my words on your page
Or to step up onstage
Cause I remember,
Remember me, old friend?
I?m the one who?s six feet under
And askin myself
After the tears that I?ve cried
Is that all there can be,
Yeah that?s all there is
To my American dream.

No, I don?t sleep any better
to have fought till I?m weak
an know you got my only vote
In our so-called land of the free

Chorus
I?ve always known what?s wrong with you
See, I ain?t never told a lie
So, now again, you?ve changed your tune
But you just cant tell me why
Don?t you remember me, no
You don?t remember me, why
Don?t you remember me
It?s a hard life but sometimes,
I?d like to have my peace of mind, so why
Don?t you remember me.
You don?t remember me, no
You don?t wanna know me now
Well you don?t wanna know me now
But tell me why
You don?t remember me

solo

3rd Verse
I?ll teach you a lesson
that you?ll never forget
you?ll dream of the soldier
who crawls off the wire
to put the words to your head.
yeah, I?ll make you remember
and you shouldn?t forget
cause next time around
there?ll be no more talking, my friend

Bridge
No more talking,
don?t be talking bout me?
no more talking,
don?t be talking bout me?
no more talking,
you can?t be of use to me

No more talking,
don?t be talking bout me?
no more talking,
don?t be talking bout me?
no more talking,
no more talking,
you can?t be talking to me

4th Verse
Well they?re some pretty big shoes to fill
Now that you?ve never known me
But you can?t forget the fields of green
And you remember the poet?s screams
40 years locked in your heart
So Charlie it would seem to me
The story?s getting older
Though the faces they get younger.
And I?ll never walk the clear blue sky
So, now won?t you see
I know you can see just why
Your flag means nothin? to me

Chorus
Now I?m resting quiet in heaven
Not sure everything?s quite been said
Seems to me too little, too late
So I?m telling you why
There?s no use lying to me
I?m telling you that
You don?t remember me

END
