Do you remember the American War?




'Bomb bomb Iran' is the Cameron, Clegg slogan......the UK is a war machine.....Simone White reminds us that this is part of perpetual American War.  The enemy shifts, they are always portrayed as the transcendent evil.........



Do you remember the American War It wasn't that long ago it was fought on every shore Are you trying to tell me that you didn't know? I saw you reading the paper at the corner store (Yes, I know, that's a joke) Did you ever think you lived inside the belly of the beast? Are you giving it something nice to eat Or are you waiting for your very own special treat? We like to live on easy street Do you remember all the people we bombed All the homes that were there that are now gone Well whoever told you that life was fair People have to die Over there Did you ever think this was the greatest country in the world? With freedom and democracy and SUV's called Liberty for every boy and girl? The oyster chokes on it's own pearl We know you can't help where you're born It's not that you're foreign It's what you stand for We know it's hard to *start* reform The revolution's born But no one claims it (Winning Ticket) Do you remember the American War We thought it was fun but it was a bore Do you remember the American War We forgot what we were fighting for We forgot what we were fighting for
