(ęDark Tower 2005)

what happens when a terrorist trained by your powers
aims a couple of aeroplanes straight into your towers?
You get all angry and you want retribution.
Bush caused the problem then offers a solution.
he says, "let's bomb those Arabs into the soil more"
when all along all he wanted was an oil war.
it's their way of keeping your sight impaired
so you give them more might when you're frightened and scared.
they say "go back to work - and keep on buying,
and keep paying those taxes - and we'll keep lying"
and you believe all the hype cos you've been grieving all night
give those heathens a plight - just to even the fight
there's a pattern of evil in all leaders agendas
Let's flatten this weevil that eats up our tenders
it's a fascist hangman's rope - disguised as corporate hype
and it makes you feel all dope when you sport the latest Nike
you should know by now it's chains bound around and poor mans neck
you should be ashamed 'bout now - unless he found some more respect.
do you wanna make the children cry or make the kids sing?

it's time for us to link it's time for us to think
it's time for us to stop believing in leaders who give us dust to drink
we mustn't sink our trust into lustful cowards
who just devour the world to sate a lust for power
to just make us cower in fearful agreement
else these terrible demons'll fill the air full of screaming-[again]-
these defenders of the American way
support terror - except when it's them in the fray
and then it's okay to respond in kind
go on to find a weaker nation then bomb them, why?
you supplied their strength so why pretend you stood by the fence?
let the end times commence, and let the world die as a consequence
I apologise if I seem callous about your loss of lives
but I espy colossal lies rising off your cries,
I want to cry but it seems there's more at stake here
else why with great care do they orchestrate fear
saying you all just wait there cower in your town housing
while we shower down mountains with millions to drown thousands
now it's not about liberty or men that Christ has reached
it's about waging war makes no sense if the price is peace.

and again we see war, but it never ended before//
they kept extending the floor behind the gentry door.
so we stand and deplore, the men who planned it before//
they just expanded the war another century more.
and so again we see war, what was the ending before?
just a closing of doors to hide the gentry flaws
while we point and deplore, the appointed bombing in store//
others anoint and encore another century of war

our war will never end - we can afford to spend more
and we've got more than plenty men so applaud and send more
whilst making profits it's good business to take some losses
and it's not the generals or bosses who shape and make the crosses
will this war ever end - we can't afford to lend more
we've got four and twenty men sent forward to end war
with more war? this world will end before the losses
generally the tossers who boss us take all the profits

(bush sample - freedom}
we're about as free as battery hens
chimpanzees in trees freely scattered in pens
we are trapped in systems - we are cysts in a stem
we are mind controlled in binds and holds and blinded to them

binds like: drink and drugs that help us sink under rugs
to escape the problems or make us think like thugs,
incite irrational stabbings riots smashings and grabbings.
deranging our visions and keep us chained in our prisons

binds like: fashion and fads dominating passion in ads,
cash in hand we've been had young mums and teen dads

binds like: debts and rents which make us stressed and tense,
and keep us locked in routines like perfect clocking machines.

binds like: American soaps which wind your head up in ropes,
and milk your spirit of hopes which narrows all of our scopes.

binds like: daily addictions creating ailing affliction,
caffeine with a stick of nicotine does the trick.

binds like: religions and schools set out to blunten the tools,
brainwashing hundreds of fools to be happy dumb under rules.

just a tentative question if i could send you to heaven
would you still go even on September eleven?

PART 3...
what happens when your worst day lengthens to our worst night?
'cause you lack the foresight or you don't care who makes the first strike
so you call up your role of aggressor and speak of freedom
put on your concerned face and keep saying "We can beat 'em!"
"We can defeat 'em if we use a force that is lethal,
destroy this axis of evil that keeps attacking our people,
but we need your support for this war," it's true, yes,
"It's important you realise it could be you next."
these veiled threats through death reveal the end game
so you don't discern the truth they turn it to an us and them game:
"Let's attack Saddam first in case he plans to use atomics,"
that's right why feed the world when you can choose to bomb it:
"We're gonna teach a lesson to those that think that they'll surprise us,
by bringing hell right up to any link of al-quaeda's."
then you try to claim "This crime was unprovoked," protesting your innocence
behind the gunsmoke directing your militants...
[to kill again to kill their friends to kill men women and children,
American business decisions mixed with politicians responsible for KILLINGS]

and again we see war, but it never ended before//
