MY ANGEL VERONICA Lyrics

by Mac Lethal

[intro-spoken]
This is not going to be easily understood.
You have to pay very very close attention to the story
And hopefully you'll be able to get the meaning out of it that I put into it.
But if not I'm sorry...
Veronica Chappelle was a Kansas City chick
That liked to talk with conviction and slams of wittiness
She like to feel on my hands and make sure I paid attention
Always interested in what I had to say, she listened
Her father treated her like she was just a slave in prison
She loved him very much and wouldn't dare to raise against him
I wanted her to let me pay a visit to him
Cause she'd come over to my house abrased and thick with bruises
Wouldn't let me know he was abusive in her young days
She used to freeze my soul and break it with this one phrase:
"One day we're gonna meet at the beach, and that's the end."
Disgrace is something I could never truly comprehend
And didn't try
Didn't have a lotta friends just different guys who like to get her high
Then strip her flat physique and lick her thighs
We met in eighth grade and clicked ever since
Her bus stop was last so I never saw her house and never went
A lotta guys tried to fuck her and most of 'em did
But I never asked for more than a friend
My boys was like, "she's just a dumb slut with bare legs
that wears red and talks like a fuckin airhead"
But she was brilliant though they just didn't know that
She never had a clever reply to throw back
She'd just seduce 'em calmy with her beauty
Always potent go to the bar and find a new guy to walk back home with
I'd give her a disappointed gaze but she'd creep into my spinal column with her little phrase
Which had me steadily in love
But she was heavy into drugs
She'd get high and tell me about the heaven up above
Like she knew what made her soul so magnificent
On psychadelics or a dosage of lithium
Blotter postage and ferocious barbiturates
No dope, fuckin on some horse pills and MiniThins
Lysergic acid had her tremblin
French kissing off the double stack
With the Hearts minted in
She used to watch my back, she used to say:
"Backstabbers are frail, so dogs are smart
When they chase their tail"
She kept me amazed
She kept my soul and made my life with her phrase
3:08 a.m. I get a call on my phone
Something's wrong I can tell by JoJo's tone
He said "Veronica was hit by a train.
She committed suicide. Told you that that bitch was insane."
I hung up the phone with a rush of tears in my eyes.
Bloodstream cool but I was really not surprised
I must've lied in bed for hours maybe even days
Thinkin bout she probably used to play me with that phrase
And talked like she was a mermaid with a great soul
Like she was an angel
She'd grab my life and take control
I'd see her at the beach and...
It would be good....it would be fine
[sound of waves and gulls over words]
Let me cry for my angel.
As long as the soul is great...
Life is great. She's my angel.
My angel will save you.
Tapped me on my shoulder.
But when I open my eyes, no one is there...
It's her.

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
