JIM'S BIG EGO: unpop for the unpopulous!

How it Happens

from Support The Truth


Okay so there wasn't any reason
okay so there wasn't any rhyme
we spent a lot of ammunition
and so a lot of people died
and some among our sons and daughters
bravely lost their legs and arms
and some folks made a lot of money
somewhere far away from harm

But let's not all start acting crazy
let's not off and loose our heads
I'm sure there's some good explanation
I'm sure it couldn't be that bad

and this is how it happens here.

Okay so things got a little nasty
okay it got a little out of hand
not sure that I would call it torture
could be I don't fully understand
somewhere someone's son or daughter
asked to be allowed to die
maybe that's just how things happen
not my place to wonder why

But let's not all start acting crazy
Keep your lip under control
I'm sure someone's got an answer
something they simply haven't told

and this is how it happens here.

Okay we heard a lot of rumors
someone told me something bad
how our leaders turned against us
how we found out we've been had
but none of that no longer matters
now we're in another war
I shouldn't talk like this in public
this ain't the land it was before

so let's not all start acting crazy
I heard they took some folks away
just sit tight and mind your business
I'm sure it'll all turn out okay...

and this is how it happens here.
