Savage and barbarous, they continue the practice of torture
the police engage in riots, the army gears for war
stop the
mutilation,stop the torture
stop the torture for profit and war
corporations use torture to rob and discard the poor
they deal in assassinations to keep the cry down to a murmer
[chorus]
to fight war in which mutilation is condoned and
allowed
the system will use any amount of force to uphold its strength and power
[chorus]
singling people out for their
beliefs, this happens now
the outright violation of human rights must be stopped somehow
on the basic questions of human
rights and human needs
they'll quietly close the door
you'll see that the freedom we have is not our own
take a look at
El Salvador
U.S. government backed butchers in the guise of friendly advisors
the friendly neighbor with a bloody trade
preparing to declare their next war
their use of the media to discredit disclaim and betray
to outrage and incite
violencee, make sure
things remain the same
[chorus]
somewhere a captive audience watch a demonstration
watch a man disfigured, his body wired
for electrocution
[chorus]
they sit with their hands clasped waiting in anticipation
they sit with their hands clasped
waiting in anticipation. stop torture.
