soldiers desert before you get hurt you don't know what they've got on their side soldiers desert you're a plant in the dirt roots in the mud head in the sky you can't forget what the sergeant said, "think on your toes, not with your head!" so scared he could taste his heartbeat. brought up nice by mom and pop carving cars from soapboxes and racing down the windy streets, now he's chopping through the desert heat. soldiers desert before you get hurt you don't know what they've got on their side soldiers desert you're a plant in the dirt roots in the mud head in the sky heathens convert go forget what you heard bury it beneath the cold ground. see the blood spurt through a hole in his shirt and nobody claps as the coroner drops the curtain down. soldiers desert before you get hurt you don't know what they've got on their side soldiers desert you're a plant in the dirt roots in the mud head in the sky

do keep track where your money comes from cause it won't last for long diamond rings and mocking birds who sing such frugal songs. he left home in the country to see what the city was like he took his money from his beloved mother 'til the good lord took her life. and he heard her sweet laugh just days ago laced up his boot straps put on his coat no way to go back no place like home those days won't come back those days are gone comfort into poverty victim of petty crime small-time, back-alley robbery but he didn't have a dime. and he heard her sweet laugh just days ago laced up his boot straps put on his coat no way to go back no place like home those days won't come back those days are gone
