War Room

This song is by Tilt and appears on the album Viewers Like You (1999).

I did not get out of the trenches unscathed
There's lingering damage I'll take to my grave
Like nerve gas poison and agent orange
The wages of high risk are part of my story

What kind of madness took ahold of me
To shoot another's blood into my willing vein
No I would never do that voluntarily
I heard a demon tell me to and I obeyed but

I don't take orders from the war room anymore
This is one recruit who surrenders
I don't take orders from the war room anymore
Now I am my own defender

I keep receiving a distorted command
And if I hadn't given up I'd surely follow
Back into the tangle of expendable men
A suicidal mission set against the wrong foe

I don't take orders from the war room anymore
This is one recruit who surrenders
I don't take orders from the war room anymore
Now I am my own defender

I may have turned yellow but did not betray
My old friends still battling out in the fray
Am I lily-livered? Now I'm a beginner
I'm damned all to hell and I am delivered

Sometimes I'm tempted to forget myself
Jump back into the skirmish as a mercenary
But what little time my poor soul may have left
I'd rather that I live it in sanctuary

I don't take orders from the war room anymore
This one recruit who surrenders
I don't take orders from the war room anymore
Now I am my own defender

I don't take orders from the war room anymore
This is one recruit who surrenders
I don't take orders from the war room anymore
I don't take orders
