i spied the government today
they seemed inclined to make us pay
after one hundred broken treaties & accords
they could not blame us for our pain
& if 1000 die tonight
no one could say just who was right
statistics tend to lie, but they don't mean too much
& i wouldn't trust those that use 'em as a crutch
for all the innocents that get murdered in the fray
we cried 3000 miles away
we found the remains of a corpse
investigate to seek the source
and in old pictures you seem happier at least
and your last witness saw you go with some police
i wish you here again to hold our nervous hearts
but that just wasn't in the cards
and if 10,000 die tonight
i hope that they put up a decent fight
for every innocent that gets murdered
in the fray
we'll fight 3000 miles away
away, way, away
l-i-v-e against brutality!
l-i-v-e against brutality!
l-i-v-e against brutality!

    General CommentThis song is, in my opinion, about fighting for truth and justice and standing up for clarity, against world violence.

    General Commentand if ten thousand die tonight,
    I hope they put up a decent fight

    and for every innocent
    that gets murdered in the fray,
    we'll fight three thousand miles away...

    Oddly reminds me of the fight against police brutality we're seeing right now in America, with Ferguson and all that.
