Stop Loss
Stop the Loss
Who’s the Boss?
Coin toss…

Asked for armor
We won’t get it,
there’s a need;
I don’t regret it.

Shock and Awe
Yes, that’s the way
Bomb them;
Then make friends Today

Confusing?
Yes, Indeed, I say!
Up-armor my vehicle
Mr. R!
How about a ride
In my flimsy car?

Stay with us
Don’t go home yet
stay for a while.
Don’t get upset

Oh, now you think you
Should go home?
Well, here’s a flash
you’re not alone!

We are staying
We don’t mind
Send us one of your sons or two
So we don’t feel
We’re flying blind…

Stop Loss
Coin Toss
Rolling tanks
Don’t gather moss

Bring us home
or flip the coin:
C’mon, Bushmen,
Won’t you join?
