50 ways to leave your cover


50 ways to leave your cover


The problem is your cowardliness, the Sergeant barked at me


You're here for a reason, can’t you see


Not here to hide inside a tent, don’t you agree


there must be 50 ways to leave your cover


50 ways to leave your cover


He said it and I knew that I was screwed


To run over sands in easy range of being viewed


running over mines would be less then shrewd


but there must be 50 ways to leave your cover


Just throw your grenade Wade


Attack before dawn, Shawn


Make em all glow, Joe


Don’t bomb the bus, Gus


you don’t need to cause a fuss


Just go spree Lee


For the land of the free

Amongst the flowers I
