what if all the fathers and the sons / went marching with their guns / drawn on washington? / that would seal the deal / show if it was real / this supposed freedom / what if all the bleeding hearts / took it on themselves / to make a brand new start? / organs pumping on their sleeves / paint murals on the white house / feed the leaders lsd / oh grab your fife and drum / grab your gold baton / and lets meet on the lawn / shut down this hypocrisy
as the health care bill is slowly turning into shit I'm suddenly reminded of this song. I first thought this song was about Bush and the war in Iraq but damn, it could easily be applied to all these corrupt fucking politicians on both sides.
did you believe the lie they told you,
that christ would lead the way
and in a matter of days
hand us victory?
did you buy the bull they sold you,
that the bullets and the bombs
and all the strong arms
would bring home security?
