Jennifer Lost the War
The Offspring Lyrics


Jennifer lost the war today
They'll find her burned and raped
Through it all
She must have wondered
What have I done?
But nobody really cares today
The world's a busy place
Guess she must have really sinned now
Really sinned now

I guess we're all just soldiers
She was only six years old
Left to die by strangers
Her family waits
And if we're all just soldiers
Is it so wrong to be afraid?

Jennifer lost the war!

Phoebe lost the war today
There must be some mistake
Say it happens all the time
And it's said and done
And Little Miss 1565
Your soul remains unclaimed
Guess she must have really sinned now
Really sinned now

Morality won't help her
When she lies silent in a morgue
And all our sorrows just don't count at all
But will the morning headlines
Even say that it's a shame
What are we headin' for?

Jennifer lost the war

Seen it all before
Silent on the ground
As he's walking away
And I wonder how many more
Everybody takes it
Like it's nothing to say oh oh
Oh yeah
Jennifer lost lost lost lost the war now

I guess we're all just soldiers
She was only six years old
Left to die by strangers
Her family waits
And will the morning headlines
Even say that it's a shame?
What are we headin' for?

I think I'm the only one who enjoys ALL of the offspring's music, rather than liking 2 albums and hating on the rest as if someone was forcing me to listen to music I don't like, as the offspring themselves said 'if you don't like it just, don't listen to it.'

Winston Marlowe

Agreed. How dare anyone not like every single work produced by your favorite band!

I like most of their songs. But most of them take a bit of time to grow on me before I really love em

ronny reagan

I don't.

Brian Branco

mayhem X9 I agree, have yet to hear one bad song, I like how they are not afraid to try new styles and the themes among their albums

Ron Burgundy

I still love this song after all these years. So good.

WasBMOC

All of these songs are so great, and still relevant today, I think it ties in well with they're one song from ignition... "I've been told that to get what you want You just gotta give what you can But I know for what I want it don't come easy as that -- Like Holden Caulfield, I tell myself There's got to be a better way Then I lay in bed and stare at the ceiling Dream of brighter days"

Alejandro Balds

Esta es mi favorita de este álbum :D

Nadeem X

'Little Miss 1565 your soul remains unclaimed'.
