They won't play the song on the radio
The war is being played out
On our televisions
One stare, the drug of the nation
The cultural enriching now begins

Like a nation, like a nation

Your remaining people have no
Trenches left from which to fight
The rich; the nation hold their guns
Will rich buy back the mayhem?
While they're moving you're an owl
There's a devil flying overhead
What a fucking pile of shit

Devastation, devastation

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs of the year and no one has commented on it? Craziness.

    To me this song is the best I've heard written about the war on terror. First song is right after the war, the nation being united in pain watching shock and awe on their TV screens.

    Like a nation.

    The second verse is a couple years later when the war has lost popularity. Appears to now be about oil and money.

    Complete devastation.
