LISTEN HERE

all the trees have leafy palms
everyone on my tv has hairy arms
your voice it soothes and really calms
on tv we are dropping bombs

we're dropping bombs on foreign people
bullets are flying bouncing off church steeples
we're dropping bombs
we're dropping bombs

the pres na dent he talks so wrong
when i watch congress it's like watching ping pong
from left to right it's so sing song
we're acting like we are king kong

we're dropping bombs on foreign people
bullets are flying bouncing off church steeples
we're dropping bombs
we're dropping bombs

our boys and girls bodies are piling up like trash
while the bullet and oil and bomb makers are raking in the cash
they're at their cocktail parties acting really crass
but if they had to send their own kids they'd shatter just like glass

we're dropping bombs on foreign people
bullets are flying bouncing off church steeples
we're dropping bombs
we're dropping bombs

the tv set it placates me
i just od'd on reality
there's 500 channels filling me with dread
they etherize my body and send me off to bed

we're dropping bombs on foreign people
bullets are flying bouncing off church steeples
we're dropping bombs
we're dropping bombs

Steve,

Very well said. This part really stands out:

"our boys and girls bodies are piling up like trash
while the bullet and oil and bomb makers are raking in the cash
they're at their cocktail parties acting really crass
but if they had to send their own kids they'd shatter just like glass"

So True... War is such a business... and it is all about money... You may not get popular by writting such words! But you are writing the truth! And your song is one way to get it out there!

Play it at Belly Up this Saturday! Cant wait!

Peace!

Using the Baathist Party apparatus as a criminal gang, Saddam tightened his grip on all aspects of life in Iraq and especially the petroleum industry. He enriched himself and his family with Iraq’s oil profits. The rest of the petro-dinars he spent on arming Iraq to the teeth and attacking Iran (1980-1988) and Kuwait (1990). “Unsustainable non-productive services sectors, particularly the military expanded at the expense of productive sectors such as manufacturing industry and agriculture. Skilled labor was absorbed by the military effort and directly-productive investment was hampered as effort centered on strategic investments to aid the war effort

Iraq stands at the threshold of momentous change.
For the first time in their history, the Iraqi people have a real possibility of materializing a goal that other Middle Easterners only dare to dream about: founding a democratic system of government where the citizens control their own destiny and voice their opinions fearlessly. The American people back the Iraqis in this struggle for freedom and dignity.

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. This will be so true. Hope I don't live to see it. I love this quote by Albert Einstein.
