This is a "simple" version of the song. If you play this with a band you might
want to change a lot of it match the studio version more closely.

His conscience barked as he watched our Apache
Cowboy-kill civilian Iraqis
The laughter rolled like tanks over bodies
She thought, what if everyone could see what I see?

Three years in a cage
For having a soul
The American way
