I was just sitting around and this just poured out of me. It's another one of those punk/rock style songs for that same two-person band. We're callin' it Deadbeat Davey for now. But I think I might try this is an acoustic folk song as well...

Spend all day long hidin’ in a foxhole
Dig through the trenches with a flagpole
My army fatigues are marijuana green
Drug stained eyes can’t wash them clean
Livin’ in acid washed daydreams
Strung out junkies in torn blue jeans
Break up guitars in fits of rage
Like little stripper girls locked in a cage

The state of the union is not okay
Run our nation just like they K.K.K.
Because you’ve already ruined our lives
It’s evident every time one of them dies

Made to be an electric chair morning person
McDonald’s breakfast plastic knives hurt someone
Follow an Indian in to the dessert like Wayne
Morrison said ride the snake and feel no pain
Cut out the middle of my bible and stuff it with Reds
Laid out Lennon style sellin’ peace from our beds
Wake up to the smell of teen spirit on burning cross
All those little children are waking up lost

The state of the union is not okay
Run our nation just like they K.K.K.
Because you’ve already ruined our lives
It’s evident every time one of them dies

Sexy wet people flash-dancing in cornfields
Crop circles at the fork where the road yields
Candy kids with alien eyes run naked in the street
Fondling every pretty-young thing they meet
X marks the spot can you find the treasure
Lucky Charms lead to your source of pleasure
Eyes are wide open but are you still alive
Call in dead because you’re too high to drive

The state of the union is not okay
Run our nation just like they K.K.K.
Because you’ve already ruined our lives
It’s evident every time one of them dies

Kill them if they’re guilty
Kill them if they’re not
Before they kill themselves
Their lives are worth what

The state of the union is not okay
Run our nation just like they K.K.K.
Because you’ve already ruined our lives
It’s evident every time one of them dies

Our nation is not okay! No!
I massacre the guitar but make beautiful music in the process. Grunge lives through me!

I can't believe no one has replied to this.. this is an awesome song. Probably one of the best I have read on here for awhile. Does nobody appreciate punk around here? Or something. I loved it.. it was perfect.

i like it. it's witty and it isn't pretentious. doesn't sound contrived or too simple. it's just right.
