ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
American Patriotism has many varied voices and differing views but only one flag which belongs to all of us. The I'm a Couch Warrior song is about America, Patriotism,America's war policy and America's role in the world. The Couch Warrior supports America's war policy and troops as he sees it. He protests the War Protestors who in turn protest the Wars and U.S. War policies. He questions the value of long ago President Ike Eisenhower's Farewell Address to the Nation and his warning to the American people about the military industrial complex. Later in the song,The Couch Warrior sings of waving our flag and invoking God to protect our troops and toasts them as they bravely fight and sometimes sadly die.

Under the U.S. Constitution, the fundamental role of Congress is to declare war. In the song he makes the point that Congress has not declared war since the World War 2 era. The Couch Warrior asks at the end of the song...Is the Constitution getting in the way??

I'M A COUCH WARRIOR


CHORUS

I'M A COUCH WARRIOR GLUED TO MY T.V.
WATCHING OUR BOYS FIGHT FOR YOU AND FOR ME
I'M A COUCH WARRIOR I BELIEVE IN THE U.S.A
I DON'T GIVE A DAMN WHAT WAR PROTESTORS SAY

THE WIMPS QUOTE OLD IKE'S FAREWELL ADDRESS
THAT WAS YEARS AGO NOW THE WORLD'S IN A BIGGER MESS
DON'T THOSE WIMPS KNOW FREEDOM ISN'T FREE?
HAVEN'T THEY HEARD OF NATIONAL SECURITY?

WAVE OUR FLAG IN OUR HEARTS DAY AND NIGHT
WHEN OUR TROOPS ARE IN WAR THAT WAR IS RIGHT
EVERY NIGHT I KNEEL DOWN TO GOD AND PRAY
KEEP THEM SAFE EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY

REPEAT CHORUS

LOOK AT OUR TROOPS BATTLE WITHOUT ANY FRONT LINE
LET'S TOAST THEM ALL WITH A BEER, OR LIQUOR OR WINE
I SEE OUR MEN DIE. IT'S MUCH MORE THAN A SHAME
THE FLAG DRAPED COFFINS MAKE WAR NO GAME

FORCED TO CHANGE THE CHANNEL TOO MUCH BLOOD AND GORE
STRANGELY I FOUND MYSELF SNEAKING BACK FOR MORE
AMERICA FIGHTS FOR FREEDOM GOOD MEN DIE AND WIDOW'S CRY
WE MUST ALWAYS STAY THE COURSE, NEVER QUESTION WHY

REPEAT CHORUS

LET'S CHEER OUR TROOPS AND SUPPORT OUR WAR POLICY
WIMPS LEAVE THE HOME OF THE BRAVE;THE LAND OF THE FREE
CONGRESS NEVER BOTHERS TO DECLARE WAR TODAY
IS OUR CONSTITUTION GETTING IN THE WAY?

FADE
