Just Before Sunrise , August 14, 1969


Fall from grace
Tortured soldier’s face
Desperate brothers hangin’ on
Firelight sky, crimson dawn

Mortar fire, cancers grow
Claymore mines, bodies blow
Lucid dreams, tunnel runs
Thunder, lightning, heavy guns

Right side, wrong side
Too many reds, spirits died
Smokin’ weed, M-16 jam
No one home gives a dam

Flyin’ high, Jeff Aeroplane
You and me, totally insane
When will it ever end
Deadly turn, river bend
