Keep Voting? The system is rotten!

Tony Blair takes his favourite chair and looks back into the past To a sea of smiling yes men and a puddle of a cast. The players on the world stage conform to what's expected They do it for money boy, never mind the unelected. And why oh why, when it's obvious, that doing good comes cheapest For best effect we send in the clowns of the Diplomatic Service. And while they stamp their feet and haggle, the best result..... sabotaged the Generals thump on war tables over plans... four or more years advanced. Yet he saw it coming and gambled just never believing they would send shock and awe... to light the nights like downtown Hollywood And now his Sons are dead the dynasty polarded And pride must bend.. to relieve his bowels while watched and securely guarded. From Palace to Palace across the land over thousands of miles he ruled Yet such an iron will and heart of stone he couldn't defend the crude We'll never know the inside, we'll never really know why America wouldn't just buy the oil He and his sons had to die. They say he had plans to attack them, they say he was killing his own They say he's had help in dark places kept the size of the threat overblown. And so when the story is written and counted in money and men For the sake of one man if it wasn't the oil you can bet it can happen again Yet we keep on voting as if good comes of that believing the newspaper lies and we call it our freedom defend it with pride forgetting to ask why have so many have died. Forgetting to ask where the guard was why the signings that scupper the Bill Forgetting the votes found in garbage denying there's any to do... Its all a National Secret and not to be questioned by me or by you. Oh Lawdy they must be so tired, They've worked so hard in our cause Cheney and Rumsfeld Bush Blair and Wolfie I'd like to string 'em up by their balls!
