There's war in the headlines
There's war in the heads
Of the leaders who feed us
'Til we're overfed
We're not hungry anymore for your diet of war
Malnutrition for the global poor
The people stood in breadlines
Are still paying for the landmines
Are being cursed for nothing worse than living on the pipelines

One war ends and the next one starts
The oilpipedream leading straight to the heart of capitalism and market chains
Supplying the demand to feel less pain
The pacification is wearing thin
Global domination has its cost
When culture's lost then no-one wins
It's no surprise when the bombs go off
This year's war

- Against terror like the war on crime
Is a war against anyone, anytime
The invisible enemy could be you
Now we live in a world of total strangers
Fear dictates 'til its who trusts who
Everyone scared of their next-door-neighbor
This year's war

...People turn to terror when all else fails
The prison's not full of rich white males
We're more than scared by the men at the top
We're talking to each other, and we're pissed off!

Pissed off with the thought it's out of our hands
That innocent people in far off lands
Will die for the greed or revenge of the few,
Who say "we have no choice in what me must do"
The empty reasons about "defending freedoms" are just never-ending streams of bluff to
justify
Complete control over people's lives
Or at least the global oil supply
And re-election when the polls roll by
And a place in history when you die
This year's war
