Around we go, when we stop, nobody knows

Look at the truant teenagers
who skip school, run riot, get high,
stop and fight the fight
then realize the government lets them die
it’s on the Breaking News, every station
didn’t you hear, a 19 year old kid died today?
Didn’t think so, well I did...
Listen to the families cry, curse up at the sky,
wishing it was their time
And what do they do… 21 solute?
Listen to them chant
We care, We care, but still send them there
But we live in America! Ya, ran by men in politics
Each one a novelist, a scholar, win votes to be popular
yeah, it’s the mafia, organized to look down on blue collar
regulating our ammo
sending kids in like they're Rambo
Look at the army rangers
Who leave home, kick up dirt, strap on 9’s, fight the fight
And listen to the bullets whizzin by
then come back and can’t believe when their benefits are denied
Then you wonder why they’re raggin
Get locked up cuz they went fuckin crazy
Listen to the old men reminisce, when they fought the war
rata tat tat sounds of a machine gun blast
fuck that, send a nuke, and even up the score
Let’s fight this war like 1944
Drop a bomb on their front door
Step back and say we won!
Stop wasting life on failure to triumph

If you are advocating that a nuclear answer is actually a choice, see "Cold War." Frustration encourages defeatist thinking, and thinking does not get worse than using nukes; wake up and realize Britain would be regulating the world's oil supply had the U.S. not established a military and economic presence within the Middle East. While peace is the ultimate goal, oil supplies must be well regulated and protected by an able military without peer in this world. Nukes are NO answer.

haha thanks for your comment, and no im not stating that nukes are the answer, im stating that we are waisting to many lives on a stupid war, and that we need to find a way to end it. the nuke portion are stories i hear from the older generation.
