free cee ARE NOT WE PROUD of ourselves

        ARENT' WE CLOUD of ourseves?

It wasn't on the tundra
where the scenery is plain
it wasn't on the dry and humid plain
where I went insane

it wasn't on the Sahara
where inhabitants and even the plants are lackadaisical and lazy
it wasn't where a steamy arid area causes rotting corpses
no, that's not where I went crazy

it wasn't in Pakistan
where a warrior can lose a limb or go blind
it wasn't where children sleep to the sound of missals 
surely that's not where I lost my mind

harkening back I think it was solely hearing the news
it doesn't matter if it's night or day
I hear about dead babies and the bullsh*t going on  
and it's happening right here in the great old U.S.A.
