Forever lost in comparisons
Between you and the better man


Yea you're always so quick

To take a bow


And your postcard sincerity
I've got to laugh at your circus sympathy
Don't you ever get tired

Of being yourself



It's getting so hard to find you


As you fade into your world of reprisal

As you slip into the comfort


Of your denial
Your patriotic smile

Your go down in style



And you say that you're not to blame

Yea you're proud of what you did

And you'd do it again

But that's too bad about the little snag
All in the name of God and country

Cause getting caught is such a drag



Even in the name of God and country


Still you're all the same to me

You're just trying to make points on national t.v.
Yea you try to make points for God


God and country

You call this justice

I call this self-service



Solo


And I hope that I never find



What you call good conscience

Or peace of mind
As another man dies for God and country


Cause I'm sure while you're sitting there talking
Well the bombs are falling


All in the name
All in the name
All in the name of God and country
