A true tale of PTSD i overheard and scribbled down.

lyrics

The Forgotten War

Oh Maria bring the bucket bring the mop
There’s blood in the kitchen you’ve got to help me clean it up
Papa’s out cold and the bleeding wont stop
He cut of his trigger finger

Ever since Korea he aint been the same
I swear Maria theres a battle in his brain
He wakes up screaming every night it’s just the same
He cut off his trigger finger

Oh Maria what we gonna do?
When he wakes up when he come to
Better get a bottle better make it two
He cut off his trigger finger

He tried to hide in a bottle but we watched him go bad
What you supposed to do with all that pain
He tried to hide in a bottle bur we watched him go bad
He cut off his trigger finger

You remember the first time his unit deployed
He came home with a bad case of soldiers joy
Rode the mainline train goodbye soldier boy
Hello soldiers joy

Soldiers joy aint no weekend pass
It aint a couple hundred dollars for pills and grass
It aint a hard on for a piece of ass
That aint no soldiers joy

Soldiers joy is the hollow eyed shell
It’s the ghost of the man I knew so well
He’s just floating around like a ring looking for a bell
That’s soldiers joy

He tried to hide in a bottle but we watched him go bad
What you supposed to do with all that pain
He tried to hide in a bottle bur we watched him go bad
He cut off his trigger finger

Oh Maria bring the bucket bring the mop

Warren Malone New York, New York

"Warren Malone has created an absolutely amazing album.“And The Ants Ate The Bee” never sounds the same twice/absolutely spellbinding/each listen feels fresh and different/The album is like a audio kaleidoscope/And then there’s that voice…an entirely unique instrument that sounds like a slightly androgynous soul singer/this album deserves repeated spins."
