Turncoat, killer, lier, thief
Criminal with protection of the law

Go!

States lies dressed up as they can go
We're tired of lies we want the truth
Brodcasting corpses, could be you
We're tired of lies we want the truth
Most people they will never know
We're tired of lies we want the truth
With your own against you
Then I am against you because you're a

Turncoat, killer, lier, thief
Criminal with protection of the law

Turncoat, killer, lier, thief
Criminal with protection of the law

And you're gunna
Makes me wanna
Douse myself in gasolene
Civil somethings going on for you
Too brainwashed to see the truth
You use anyone you can

Turncoat, killer, lier, thief
Criminal with protection of the law

Turncoat, killer, lier, thief
Criminal with protection of the

Killer

Lier

A turncoat and a thief

Criminal with protection of the law

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this song has GOT to be about Bush or some other brutal dictator. It just makes too much sense. They kill with the protection of the law.

    Also, anyone remember Bush's "you're either with us or against us" line after 9/11?

    Well, this song, "With your own against you? Then I am against you because you're a...". It all adds up in the end.

    General Comment"Brodcasting corpses, could be you " thats wrong, its Broadcasted by corpes couting you

    And you're gunna
    Makes me wanna
    Douse myself in gasolene
    Civil somethings going on for you
    Too brainwashed to see the truth
    You use anyone you can "

    Its:
    In your corner
    Makes me wanna
    Douse myself in gasoline
    Civel servents fall in line for you

    then the rest is right

    I also thinks its against bush
    "Why can our country spend 40 million dollars on a single meal, yet there are children starving on the streets?"

    General CommentWhy is it that nobody on Earth can spell "liar"? We should at least know how to spell our accusations, people. (And yeah, this is pretty obviously about Bushie.)

    General Commenthow come more people haven't commented? i love this song.

    and Bush is a douche.it IS stupid how people are paying movie stars like millions per movie, yet there are people starving. it's ridiculous.

    and i think "criminal with protection of the law" can tie into the government and the death penalty. the government is basically a killer, protected under the law.

    that's just sick.

    General CommentI usually get sick of all the songs being put out that whine about politics too much, but this song is awesome. Intro on the acoustic sounds great
