Let’s sponsor more terrorists and start some more shit.
War is never over; freedom takes another hit.
What excuse do we have? It really doesn’t matter.
We can always put the blame on some innocent mother.
She shouldn’t have gone shopping on that fateful day,
If she hadn’t she’d be alive and not out of the way.
We’ve done so much damage to many a culture.
We’re so evil and depraved; we put the blush to a vulture.
There’ll never be a target that we can’t find.
We practice on people, it’s how we unwind.
The simple things in life are drones and wars.
Among our assets are the ones behind bars.
We arm the rebels, they’re a motley crew.
They get the job done, it takes only a few.
Those who pull the strings are loving life.
They love to see the struggles, the tears and the strife.
We give them what they want and the pay is really good.
We keep the Blacks gated in an inner city hood.
With no chance to advance; they’ve got nowhere to run.
We gave them an option; we gave them a gun.
This is but a game and we don’t aim to lose.
How could we, with the weapons we use.
We cultivate hate; it’s all part of the plan.
You point the finger, but it’s at the wrong man.

The powerful control us. They are why we are constantly at war. They are why we hate each other. They are why people have to strike for a decent wage. They are why prisons are overflowing. They are why a mother cannot shop in Iraq, nor in Yemen or Pakistan or even in America because we can be struck down anywhere and everywhere. We have no control over our destiny. We have no control over our own lives and our future. History has repeatedly shown that the U.S. government has funded terrorists and terrorism and the present day fear that many Americans are experiencing is due to the actions of our government. Our government is terrorizing us. A person could or could not be a terrorist and it all depends on who the government decides is a terrorist. For those of us who are war weary, we are just going to have to stay that way because the powerful want it that way. I would like to end this by saying, “peace,” but there is NO peace nor will there ever be “peace!,” not if our government has anything to say about it.
