MONKEY MOUNTAIN
Chuck Tryon, with Mary Gauthier

There’s a crack in my armor I don’t know what to do
After all these years something’s pushing through
My mind spins, my thoughts implode
I don’t believe what I was told

I feel guilty just to be alive
I’m still here, but I don’t know why
Monkey Mountain massacre, I see it with my eyes closed
I don’t believe what I was told

I don’t believe what I was told
I don’t believe what I was told

I see the young ones with a thousand yard stare
And I see myself I see me in there
I feel their heart I know their soul
And I don’t believe what I was told

I don’t believe what I was told
I don’t believe what I was told

I gotta stay busy I gotta give it away
Gotta put a smile on another vet’s face
It slows the demons it soothes my soul
I don’t believe what I was told

I don’t believe what I was told
I don’t believe what I was told
