As U.S. soldiers guard poppy fields for the heroin dealers
The warmongers take a stance against the healers
Peace is never the object or the goal
And there’s no effort to make people whole.
U.S. hypocrisy is unbelievably disgusting
But the corporate media expects us to be trusting.
The politicians lie through their teeth
As a dying nation they bequeath
Our soldiers believe they do the right thing
And they die in vain – it’s such a sting!
Three million died in Viet Nam still a Communist nation
So it’s just another political state oblation.
Americans think that they have freedom
As to slavery they choose to succumb.
Our children pursue their lust
And their life is just a bust.
The bankers love their paper money
Which has become like tainted honey.
Bush said the Constitution was just a piece of paper
And now we watch our freedoms taper.
Is there no solution to our demise?
Is there no one who is wise?
Look to the wisdom of history and what do you see
Is there a place to be for you and me?
Words are plentiful, and they fall to the floor
Is there anyone who will stop the next war?
