Anti war statement dedicated to all the brave service men and women serving and dying in our time.
"You provide the pictures. I'll provide the war."
-William Randolf Hearst-
Duplicity abounds friend now foe
Friend in carnage foe we control
Control information they will agree
Mothers play well honor them with a flag
A star for their window for each lifeless child
Never mind purpose never mind a goal
21 years we earned with no end before
They'll provide sons and daughters
Cast a net on the poor trapped disparing
Fish the ghettos slums and barrios
Cast your nets proudly
Shine buckels epplets silvery swords
Stand tall and straight
Speak of freedom honor doing your part
Sing them a song
When Johnny Comes Marching Home
Don't use real lyrics they won't come
If he hasn't an arm and he hasn't a leg
There will be no profit
Hold your tongue
They Will Come - Succumb - Speak As One
