lyrics

life in rural alabama
things seemed so pristine
you grew up and joined the army
you were only seventeen

pledged allegiance to the gospel
of the dead presidents
you would soon regret that promise
and realize just what it meant

are you evil, or are you heaven sent?
are you searching for a god you can't comprehend?

a perfect soldier hits his target
here's a swift pat on the back
a lucky child avoids the drone strike
but that won't bring his sister back

here's a medal, job well done boy
We sure made a man of you
you did good, you served your country
we're so very proud of you

are you evil, or are you heaven sent?
are you searching for some god you can't comprehend?
are you shocked to see the devil waging war on his own people?
would it hurt more if it were your child hanging lifeless from the steeple?
