There’s a lot going on to keep us distracted, and I don’t need to make a list because you already know all about that. The problem with distractions is they often cause us to fail to look at the issues that are of real importance. In my opinion the biggest issues are the out of control war machine that now is the face of America and the environmental disaster that continues to worsen and even be denied. So here’s a commentary on the latest debacle of our war-based economy.
LYRICS LOSE YOUR HEAD
Why are we at war in Yemen
with our missiles and our bombs?
While we sell them to the Saudis
who are bombing schools and farms, .
crushing Yemen’s infrastructure ’til it’s nearly been destroyed,
Gone with health and sanitationwhere our weapons are deployed.
Wait! Isn’t that a war crime? Targeting civilians, tens of thousands now are dead.
Hey! But just ignore that ringing of that death chimeIf you don’t want to lose your head.
Exactly who is it that we are fighting there?
Don’t you want to know?
Our war machine pays off our congress,it’s little more than a puppet show.
We now live in a war paradigm
dissenting voices are not allowed.
it’s what we’re exporting to the world
and we’re headed for the mushroom cloud.
Saudi and America are congenital twins
Every step is about the money and only the money wins.
So we sell them billions worth of weapons
and let them use them how they will.Makes no difference to us who or what it is they choose to kill.
Do not think for just one second
that any of these wars are just;
That we invade those other countries so we can help them to adjust;
That we bomb them to oblivion so they too can be free.
You have to ask the question, “Just how free can chaos be?”
How many people in this world actually want a war?
It can’t be more than 25 or maybe only 24.
But this world is run by conmen they’re on every different side.
War profiteering used to be illegal in a long forgotten time
Now the spoils of war are the driving force
and all our wars are crimes.
But don’t stand up and point that out
just regurgitate what you’re fed.You have to watch your step these days or you could lose your head.
In Yemen we’re killing children hundreds dying every day.
We need to sell those weapons so that’s just a price they’ve gotta pay.
While we brag about our weapons deals and tightly clinch our fist.
We are bombing seven countries now
how many can you list?
