I walk through these streets, my head’s spinning.
A killer walks these streets among you tonight;
I thought that I was just doing my job;
Defending my buddies and myself from harm;
In the process, I killed a child in front of his mother.
Bad intelligence and empty posturing brought me to the desert;
The land around me is now laid to waste;
And so am I on the inside.
At the time, I thought that I did things with valor and honor;
I received awards and accolades and applause;
Even been hailed as a hero.
These days, I can’t even keep my marriage together.
I’ve been institutionalized and am now in therapy.
As I walk these streets, inside my own mind,
A killer walks among you all…
