nine years into the future and we're still counting the dead and the dying still totaling the countless hidden victims of heightened state terror still believing of a peace and prosperity of a peace with a hundred thousand executed by disease of a prosperity with millions living on the streets and i've got to wonder what the fuck its going to take can it be undone can we stem the tide of violence or are we gonna sit back relax and watch tv while the "have nots" get their heads kicked in keep counting the policies that failed and the lies that worked they worked we swallowed them down deep swallowed them whole.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about the failure of Reaganomics, and the continuation of the status quo with the first Bush regime. It calls to mind the US's complicity in quelling rebellion not only in central and South America, but even here at home. Very compelling indeed...
