Light Up Ya Lighter Lyrics


by Michael Franti. From Body of War : Songs That Inspired an Iraq War Veteran.


it never makes no sense
It never makes no sense
Fire, fire, fire, light up your lighter
Fire, fire, fire
Armegedon is a deadly day
Armegedon is a deadly way
They're coming for you everyday
WHile senators on a holiday
The army recruiters in the parking lot
Hustling kids, they're juggling pot
"Listen young man, listen to my plan
Gonna make you money, gonna make you a man.
(bomb, bomb)
Here's what you get, an M16 and a kevlar vest
You might come home with one less leg but this thing will surely keep a bullet out your chest
So come on, come on, sign up, come on
This one's nothing like Vietnam
Except for the bullets, except for the bombs
Except for the youth that's gone"

So we keep it on, til you're coming home
higher and higher
Fire, fire, fire, light up your lighter
Fire, fire, fire
So we keep it on, til you're coming home
higher and higher
Fire, fire, fire, light up your lighter
Fire, fire, fire

Tell me president tell me if you will
How many people does a smart bomb kill?
How many of them do you think we got?
The general says we never miss shot
And we never ever ever keep a body count
We're killing so efficiently we can't keep count
In the afghan hills the rebels still fighting
Opium fields keep on providing
The best heroin that money can buy and
No body knows where Osama bin hiding
The press conferences keep on lying
Like we don't know

So we keep it on, til you're coming home
higher and higher
Fire, fire, fire, light up your lighter
Fire, fire, fire
So we keep it on, til you're coming home
higher and higher
Fire, fire, fire, light up your lighter
Fire, fire, fire
So Mr engine, engine, number 9
Machine guns on a New York transit line
The war for oil is a war for the beast
the War on terror is a war on peace
Telling you they're gona protect you
Telling you that they support the troops and
Don't let 'em fool you with their milk and honey
No, they only want your money
One step forward and 2 step back
One step forward and 2 step back
Why do veterans get no respect
PTSD and a broken back
Take a look at where you money's gone (seen)
Take a look at what they spent it on
No excuses, no illusions
Light up your lighter, bring 'em home

So we keep it on, til you're coming home
higher and higher
Fire, fire, fire, light up your lighter
Fire, fire, fireSo we keep it on, til you're coming home
higher and higher
Fire, fire, fire, light up your lighter
Fire, fire, fire

So we keep it on, til you're coming home
higher and higher
Fire, fire, fire, light up your lighter
Fire, fire, fire
So we keep it on, til you're coming home
higher and higher
Fire, fire, fire, light up your lighter
Fire, fire, fire
