Song Description

a soldier in the first Gulf War takes drugs and gets a killing lust for anything that moves, and he still has this when he comes home rolling beats, strong chorus and great guitar lines create the dark atmosphere of this sympathetic anti-war song

Story Behind the Song

I met a soldier from the first gulf war and he told me a story of soldiers taking drugs, watching scud missiles fly over head and getting crazy, shooting even their fellow soldiers, and in desperate need of counseling when they got home but getting none. one of the only political songs I have written

Lyrics

He dreams peacefully of waking to a golden English summer day
A beautiful English dawn
while he sleeps in the evil calm
before the evil desert storm

Adrenalin pulls the trigger
and confusion turns to lust
and the acid aims a missile
and the shelter turns to dust

Adrenalin pulls the trigger
and confusion turns to lust
and the acid aims a missile
and the shelter turns to dust

and he flies across the desert skies
come down before he comes home
come down, come down, come down

Adrenalin pulls the trigger
and confusion turns to lust
and the acid aims a missile
and the shelter turns to dust
