13. "Army (Dream Song)" by Boiled in Lead is one. (Dream+Song)

In my dream, I'm suddenly in the army
And the army life is good, but I'm ankle deep in blood
I went to see the quartermaster
And the quartermaster said, your socks are awful red
I found the master sergeant
I said "Sergeant, I am hurting, I'm considering deserting"
He said "Do whatever's in your conscience"
So I tried to make a run, but I was stapled to the gun
And the cannon were lined up all in a line
Dark and cold
They aimed them all straight upward
And thunder rolled (repeat second line of intro chords)
I went to see the first lieutenant
He said "God, they're going to bomb us, from their vicious flying llamas!"
I dove into the llama shelter
I became Charlotte Cordet, and the battle fell away
But the peace that reigned in Upper Dreamland
Was badly negated when the giant slugs invaded
I turned to face my fine young officers
I was barking out my orders, when they crashed across the borders
