These obvious manipulations
Predicated on the basis of morals
The unseen eyes, so careless in their calculations
Forever washing the blood from their hands
An appetite insatiable
Forced down your throat, demand your full attention
Forging their way, no sorrow, no sense of shame
Eyes to the floor
Didn't we see this coming?
Five bitter years, this lie indefensible
Countless bitter tears, and more shed every day
There's a change coming on
We gotta right these fucking wrongs
They can cover their ears
But we won't stop screaming

The mighty fall, this curtain's coming down
Sputtering excuses for the mess they brought us all
Keep them inside, maybe we can block the exits
How do they live with this blood on their hands

Did we turn and look the other way
While fates were sealed and plans were made
Did we choose not to stop this runaway train
And it just kept on rolling

Deception is what brought us here
Now truth must end the fear
This crossroad lies before us now
And the world watches our every move
While we choose which way to go
We still have so much left to lose

    General CommentThis song is about the war in Iraq. This meaning is obvious in the line "Five bitter years, this lie indefensible," since the war started in 2003.
