Story

NOTE TO U.S. SOLDIERS: You are not fighting for freedom, or for Israel. The more the military follows the orders of these madmen the more freedom we lose. No U.S. soldiers are fighting for American freedom and our way of life, but rather the profits of Nazis. Yes, Nazis. Hitler never would have risen to power if it had not been for the Bush family. They financed Hitler, spread propaganda, provided key military support, profited off the labor of camp prisoners, and were involved in the founding of eugenics the pillar of Nazi theory. One might say the Bush/Walker family and friend founded the Nazi party. So, now who ya fightin' for? BTW It is time we start looking into the backgrounds of some of the war mongering Israelis, some Jews collaborated with the Nazis, and some still are evidently. I am not anti-Semitic. Christians like Bush are anti-Semitic, and the Jews that collaborate with them are traitors.

Lyrics

I don't see the people I just push the button let the bombs fly I'm here on a mission not here to ask why I am the war eagle I rain death from the sky I don't see the people I don't see them die The camera takes pictures As the bombs fall through the air They'll look at 'em at briefings their holding down there Then they�ll show you the ones their willing to share But I'm here on a mission and I really don't care Chorus: I am the war eagle I rain death from the sky I am the war eagle and I never ask why Some say it's for freedom some say it's for home I really don't think about it As I fly here alone I do it for something I find on my own I do it for a rush I can feel in my bones chorus: Now there's a new target Dead ahead in my sights I try not to think about it as I fly through the night They say were fighting for freedom Still on the side of what's right but the targets Ohio and the fires so bright Chorus:

Lyrics

SEVEN SOULS They say the sun was burning bright that day On the soldiers who�d come from far away They faced a car just like all the cars before Filled with people who were running from this war It wouldn�t stop so the soldiers fired their guns Now seven souls lie buried �neath the sun Chorus: An there are voices on the wind tonight and they cry for They�ll see no morning light And the angels of both sides gather round Seven souls lying buried in the ground Then the solders cam and saw the women and how they dies Saw their children lying dead there by their side Some turned away, some simply stood and wept But the order was firm, and an order must be kept And what the women cried as they died beneath those guns Now lies buried beneath the desert sun Chorus They say in war the innocent must die And in every war there are mothers who must cry Well here�s seven more in a battle no one won Seven more lying buried �neath the sun Chorus: They say the sun was burning bright that day� On the soldiers who�d come from far away

Lyrics

Gone Without a Kiss I didn�t know about the war, till it exploded in front of my door, Now death and destruction are all I can see. I didn�t see the planes but the bombs fell down just like rain, I didn�t even know they had taken my child from me. Chorus But now every nite I hear his voice, my child who will never grow old. How could they take him from me, and then tell me that I am free? How could a war come from so far away and snuff out the light of my life? Gone in the blink of an eye, without a kiss of goodbye. Now the tanks they roll by his grave, the soldiers all smile and wave. One soldier shouts your country�s free at last. But I can�t raise my hand, and that soldier will never understand, Why I stand and weep each day when the tanks roll by. Chorus Now they say the war is won, the old regime is done, But the war inside my heart will never end. My world is ashen gray, they took my light away. And now I cry each nite like the desert wind Chorus

Lyrics

Prayer from the Rubble I hear the sound of distant sirens They will blow steady all nite long It mingles with the sound of gunfire This nite it sings a deadly song This nite it sings a deadly song We must huddle in this building Afraid to leave the shelter for the nite For in the darkness death is random This nite it knows no wrong or right This nite it knows no wrong or right And I will pray to Allah Don�t let my children die They did not ask for this And my God neither did I Oh my God neither did I The spotlight plays upon the building One in three is newly burned Like us they�ve been touched by this madness Like us they wonder what�s been learned Like us they wonder what�s been learned But in the darkness there are no answers And there are no wise men in this place Huddled here are only losers We were not even in the race We were not even in the race And I will pray to Jehovah Don�t let my children die They did not ask for this And my God Neither did I Oh my God neither did I Oh I will pray to Allah And I will pray to Jehovah Don�t let my children die Don�t let my children die Don�t let my children die Don�t let my children die

Lyrics

GOD LOOKS DOWN When God looks down from his haven up above Now this shit has to blow his mind I bet he never thought that it would come to this When he made up human kind �cause if he had he would have kept us in the garden Kept us better under control �cause as it is now he�s gotta look up at the stars and say �Lordy Lordy bless my soul� Chorus: Don�t ask me I�m just one sinner what do I know Don�t ask me God don�t tell me when he comes and goes God came down to the mountain that day Said I got some commandments for you He looked old Moses right dead in his eye And said �you better keep �em too!� Moses said, �Lord I�m gonna do what I can, But people got a wayward eye This one you got here about no other god We might as well not even try.� Chorus: Moses never got to see the promised land And them folks they been fightin�� ever since And when he looks down and tries to figure it out I bet it don�t make a lick of sense Their fighting�� over this and their fighting�� over that Their fighting�� like he didn�t even care Their killin� on ground that they swear he holds holy Killin� like he wasn�t even there Chorus: Now preacher man will tell you God is coin� back You better go and get yourself right I hate to disappoint �em but I ain�t believing� The good lord is comin� tonight. He�s probably looking� down and he�s looking� here and there And there�s trouble everywhere that he can see He�s thinking� to himself if I come back now These fools are probably gonna blame me Chorus:

Next time you go shopping for that new SUV, boat, three wheeler, private plain, or tour bus, think of a muslim grave yard full of children. The toys in the graveyard are our own.

Lyrics

Barren Ground Way out west among the big trees Hey the old trees fall each day And this price just keeps on growing That each of us must pay Chorus: We can’t ride our train to glory If those big green bridges go down We can’t eat those golden mansions Can’t let them push their dreams across More Barren Ground Hey the old growth It is the real home To more than we will ever know We can’t let folks rich and greedy Tell us all where it can grow Chorus We will stop them Because we have to And we will fight them If we must But they will not take the big trees Till they have taken each of us Chorus

Lyrics

Sacred Groves Chorus; Each Sacred Grove Each hillside covered green with trees Has the power to heal a weary land We must sanctify that ground Don’t let them cut the big trees down Every forest holds the key to natures plan Each ancient tree Is a legacy of life Every tree is a thing that must survive They can clean our dirty air If we just handle them with care Every tree is a thing that must survive Chorus Each ancient tree Can tell us all we need to know Every tree is a thing that must survive They can help us understand How we fit in natures plan Every tree is a thing that must survive Chorus Each ancient tree Is a gift we give our kids Every tree is a thing that must survive They must sleep beneath those limbs If their to learn those ancient hymns Every tree is a thing that must survive

Lyrics

Anti-Corporate Rant Listen to what I’m talkin’ about It ain’t easy bein’ you it ain’t easy bein’ me They keep us catatonic here in the land of the free We search the information age for any spot of truth But all we find are corporate bill of sales Tell me what’s the use Chorus: It’s just a shame Corporate shame Low down shame Bottom line shame There are a lot of talkin’ heads But it’s always the same ol’ line The truth goes to the highest bidder And justice is stone blind The air is owned by pirates The land is owned by shieks That don’t leave much to inherit When you get down to the meek Chorus There are roads off to the left There are roads off to the right But the road that leads to justice They keep that hidden out of sight They hide it behind power They hide it behind greed It’s hid behind a million things No-one really needs Chorus Some people wait for saints Or for saviors from above Some people wait justice Or for ever lasting love But what ever way you go Corporations block the track We’re way to deep in corporate hell There ain’t no turning back Chorus It ain’t easy bein’ me It ain’t easy bein’ you We’re caught up in this corporate shit No matter what we do The cloths we wear The food we eat There’s no way to escape No matter where you go You are in the corporate state Chorus

Lyrics

Who Gives A Damn In the heat of the jungle In the deep urban nite See him leanin� on the wall Just waitin for a fight He�s got no illusions It�ll all turn out right But who gives a damn anyway Who gives a damn anyway He�s just a tragic example Of the current modern hip Got a few glib statements He�s bound to let slip To warn you about the death and violence He carries on his hip But who gives a damn anyway Who gives a damn anyway Breakdown Now his mamma don�t understand him And his pappa�s long gone He was born a stonedead victim Of the street he�s walkin on He�s never gonna know When he�s seen his last dawn But who gives a damn anyway Tell me who gives a damn anyway See he was born with one brother Already in the grave And he was born too late For any social system to save He�ll spend his short life confused About the master and the slave But who gives a damn anyway Who gives a damn anyway Breakdown He saw the vultures first gather On the day he was three And he found out later that�s As picturesque as it would be And that down here darlin Only their foods really free But who gives a damn anyway Who gives a damn anyway I mean if Jesus come down here He better be packin heat �Cause you�re the winner or your dead When you cruise out on these streets And down here baby Even saints end up under sheets But who gives a damn anyway Who gives a damn anyway Breakdown See this american dreamer He�s a nitemare from hell He�s the prototype of the stereotype We all know to well He�s the real bottom line To everything we buy and sell But who gives a damn anyway Who gives a damn anyway And when the poor boy dies Just leave the grave stone blank �Cause there�s too many fuckin� people We really have to thank From the first nail in his arm To the first wine that he drank Tell me who gives a damn anyway Who gives a damn anyway Tell me who gives a damn anyway Who gives a damn anyway Breakdown

Story

This was written as I watched the news coverage of the L.A. riots in response to the verdict letting the cops that beat Rodney King to near death off the hook.

Lyrics

The Verdict The smell of the smoke The roar of thre flames The nights brnin' like hell It's like it's all gone insane It's like this whole city Is just writhin' in pain Chorus: And the nite wind It just moans Let it burn The Verdicts' been returned The howl of the wounded The silence of the lost The governments watchin' Wonderin' how much it will cost But you can't lose nothing When it's already lost Chorus: The shattering glass The flash of the gun The long nights of madness Have finally begun Just hope they don't burn it all Before this night is done Chorus
