    no really. thats not a photoshop in my header. 

    if you go to LATimes.com right now you will see the responsibility project presenting Tony. its crazy. and now for my favorite veteran’s song.

    Born down in a dead mans town
    The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
    You end up like a dog thats been beat too much
    Till you spend half your life just covering up

    Born in the u.s.a., I was born in the u.s.a.
    I was born in the u.s.a., born in the u.s.a.

    Got in a little hometown jam
    So they put a rifle in my hand
    Sent me off to a foreign land
    To go and kill the yellow man

    Born in the u.s..a….

    Come back home to the refinery
    Hiring man said son if it was up to me
    Went down to see my V.A. man
    He said son, dont you understand

    I had a brother at Khe Sahn
    Fighting off the Viet Cong
    Theyre still there, hes all gone

    He had a woman he loved in Saigon
    I got a picture of him in her arms now

    Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
    Out by the gas fires of the refinery
    Im ten years burning down the road
    Nowhere to run aint got nowhere to go

    Born in the u.s.a., I was born in the u.s.a.
    Born in the u.s.a., Im a long gone daddy in the u.s.a.
    Born in the u.s.a., born in the u.s.a.
    Born in the u.s.a., Im a cool rocking daddy in the u.s.a.
