Death to distraction
Reverse the resurrection
Today we say what is not said or read
And I'll bring to life what is now dead

No, this is not a message to me or you
But rather a call to arms
We arm with the truth
We are at war but what is it for?
They say on the screen "democracy's dream"
But why don't they trace the blood back to the green?
We are at war and that's what we die for.

Death to distraction.
Reverse the resurrection.
Today we say what is not said or read
And I'll bring to life what is now dead

No, he did not have support to declare war
And there is no help so we must send more
Why must it be?
It profits not me
The shepard lets sheep die in their sleep
And then feeds on the land of those who won't reap
To satisfy greed "be all that you can be!"

Death to distraction
Reverse the resurrection
This whole production was a lie, we'd buy,
But what's not staged is that we'd die to try
And save what he's tapping

Blood for oil
Now that you're listening...
These are some hard times
But we had them coming
We were the ones who went out and voted him in
He called a mandate and our hopes were choking
But just take deep breaths and remember we're oxygen

Turn off your T.V. screens
Put your ears to the street
They are laughing
But how long will that be?
Turn off your T.V. screens
Put your ears to the street
They are laughing
But how long will that be?
Decide.

    General Commentwhat a cool song, i like the vocals and stuff but that techno breakdown kinda pulled me off but the breakdown after it is cool oh and its obvious this song is about bush and it completely anti-war they didnt even use metaphor or something to kinda cover it up or just hint at it they just flat out said it haha
