Tanks occupy New Orleans, subjugating this event
Soldiers armed with M-16s, protect private developments
As relief assists the victims, and build first aid hospitals out of tents
Washington gives out orders to open fire on command
As poverty casts its shadows over the ruins now overflowing
those in office steal all the funds, to maintain their oil conquest from deploying
Its profit over people, and its clearly shown
Their actions are inhumane even here at home
If you honestly think they didnt know, youve swallowed their propagandas
Concerns about the levees were warned weeks before Katrina
But their sight focused on the pipelines, shipping oil to the states
As families drowned under the tides from busted water gates
Auditoriums are overcrowded, battalions organized by activists
To inform others about the arrests made on independent journalists
Its profit over people, and its clearly shown
Their actions are inhumane even here at home
Its a battlefield outside, theyve got us all under martial law
barricades between us, crammed in to shopping malls
Now their sketching diagrams to rebuild and restore stability
Draining out potential regions to upstart economy
Unmarked cars and convoys patrol with assault rifles in hand
FEMA wasnt there to assist but there to profit off leftovers of the land
Its profit over people, and its clearly shown
Their actions are inhumane even here at home
New Orleans isnt a history story, its happening right now
Just because its not televised doesnt mean the disappeared were found
Aid medics rushed to the scenes, a day after the hurricane hit
As the military helicopters circled disaster areas and didnt do shit
Rowing boats searching for people waving helplessly on rooftops
While Bush sent reinforcements of mercenaries, contractors and cops
Its profit over people, and its clearly shown
Their actions are inhumane even here at home
As the water fills our lungs
We wait for help to come

New Orleanss occupied
