Everyone here's in trouble
The man with the megaphone
Smoke and mirrors and crystal balls and red alerts and all because
Of the king who hides behind the pawns
I can see what's really going on
I can see what's really going on

Everyone here's a bubble
Merrily floating on
Manicured suburban lawns and patriotic country songs
Pledge allegiance, sing along
I can see what's really going on
I can see what's really going on

Everyone here's in trouble
Angels abandon guard
History is cyclical
Crusaders and the biblical
Light the torches bang the gongs
I can see what's really going on
I can see what's really going on

Na na na na-na
Na na na na-na
Na na, na na
Na na, na na

Na na na na-na
Na na na na-na
Na na, na na
Na na, na na

    General CommentAnti-war.

    "G Major" = George Bush

    The anti-war theme goes all the way down to the Bob Dylan-esque harmonica.

    General CommentYep, clearly anti-war. I also like how Guster, who in other songs seems to show themselves as religious, chastise the use of the Bible to rationalize imperialism/war. "History is cyclical, crusaders and the biblical" Reference to the Crusades, of course, and comparing that to nowadays with the West once again thumping their Bibles and strutting their armies in the Middle East.
