The guns were so successful
We bombed them even more
Destroying life in an instant
The start of another war
They said this time was different
An act of self defence
But all it did was increase the hatred
Let the war on terror commence.
The ones who give the orders
Will never fight themselves
They may be clever with expressions and words
But open them up and delve
Right Into their hearts souls and minds
And reveal their true light
Weak and scared pathological liars
Thieves and parasites.
All the usual talk of democracy
Is a disguise for more control
Everyone can see right through them
And their ideological goal
It’s hard to believe how easy they deceive
Maybe people just don’t care
A life is no more than a number these days
The compassion is no longer there.
We’re proud of our chemical weapons
We’re part of an elite
You must never give them to anyone else
That would make ours obsolete.
Of course we’ll never use them
They’re really only for show
But don’t tell the rest of the world that fact
It’s our little secret you know.
We’ll fill our nation with fear
Before any blood is spilt
We’ll make the message sincere
And exonerate ourselves from guilt
And when World War 3 erupts
We’ll deny any blame or wrongdoing
It was all in the name of God you see
This road to rack and ruin.
Millions of lives will be lost
But that’s not our concern
While many will be counting the cost
We’ll be quietly waiting our turn
To be lorded and knighted by our head of state
For doing our honourable duty
Continuing the hurt grovelling in the dirt
Prolonging the misery and cruelty.
And when it’s all finally over
We’ll start once again like before
We have no intention of ending intervention
So begins yet another war.
