Stand still/ every thing's cancelled/ man's never touched an animal it can't kill/

there's no more hustling/ past my era/ cold war Russian/ Aghan, Arabs enforce what they dub free/ rig a trash can dust a humvee/ in a culture we learn that freedom's urgent/ we wonder why they turn to insurgents/ certain situations call for violence/ the homeland, defy foreign forces who occupy it/ call it invasion/ call off the dogs/ can't afford the cost to maintain it/ fog of war the insane mist/ not even sure which way we're aiming/ the soldiers I can't blame them/ but I'd never pull a trigger for a college payment/ our situations aren't the same/ you ever stared down the barrel of an AK friend?/ I didn't think so/ every story's got a wrinkle/ and this one's folded over all our eyes/ so much we don't know and we can't describe/ crazy how much it demands our time/ dance with the design/ the damage is done/ distracted savage/ anarchist ash the masses cancer's cut from the canvas/ can't touch what you can't handle/ come to grips with a cup and then tell them it's half full/ just enough to wash your sandcastle/ what we live for is the dust across our sandals/

Stand still/ every thing's cancelled/ man's never touched an animal it can't kill/
