Ryan Harvey – Search And Avoid lyrics

The orders were clear that were handed down
Ground patrol, hostile town
The insurgency's growing cuz they want us out
So we all seem to agree

We drove off the base, guns loaded up
Scared of the deaths approaching us
Til my friend said slow down, wait, hold up
Turn left, just trust me

Nah, no way, not me, fuck that
I ain't gonna enter no death trap
I won't kill or be killed, and when I get back
I'm gonna work to bring the troops back home
Search and avoid, you make the rules
It's a profit war, don't be fooled
It ain't worth your life to transport fuel
Soldier, you're not alone!

We found a bridge outside of town
Where we'd be safe from the mortar rounds
Parked under there and just sat around
Playing cards and relaxing

Every hour or so we'd phone in
Rev the engine with a silent grin
Say "we set some check points, didn't find a thing"
I guess nobody's attacking

Nah, no way, not me, fuck that
I ain't gonna enter no death trap
I won't kill or be killed, and when I get back
I'm gonna work to bring the troops back home
Search and avoid, you make the rules
It's a profit war, don't be fooled
KBR Contractor's sitting at the pool
And he'll never see the combat zone

At the end of the day we rolled away
Laughing about how we'd spent the day
"Bush wants to kill us", my friend would say
He should come to Samarra and see"

Cuz we ain't liberatin', we're invadin'
It's an unjust war and occupation
So from here on out my destination
Is gonna be up to me

Nah, no way, not me, fuck that
I ain't gonna enter no death trap
I won't kill or be killed, and when I get back
I'm gonna work to bring the troops back home
Search and avoid, you make the rules
It's a profit war, don't be fooled
And the folks back home know it's bullshit too
Soldier, you're not alone!
