lyrics

Welcome back from Vietnam, hope the syndrome hasn’t got you John
If it did well we’ve got a treat, on the streets is where you’ll sleep

#The government ignores you, it was our job to store you
But ya see it just costs too much, run the house, for the nuts#

Sorry Rambo we shut her down, maybe you can try the next town
Sorry you got nowhere to go, but at least you get to keep your lobe

#Pre-Chorus#

*Reagan shut down the asylums, there's just nowhere left to hide ‘em
Reagan shut down the asylums, you just can’t keep denying ‘em*

See you’re ill but in the head, it’d be easier if you were just dead
You know the jail would take you in, welcome to prison the new loony bin

#Pre-Chorus#
*Chorus*

…(solo)…

#Pre-Chorus#
*Chorus*

Reagan Shut down the asylums, reagan shut down the asylums
Reagan shut down the asylums, you just can’t keep denying ‘em!
