The Lyrics

I'm taking a break from my U2 parodies to do a political cover of a new Sarah McLachlan song. I've just recently gotten back into her music after the whole Lilith Fair thing disappeared. As you probably guessed, this song addresses Bush as well...
See the parades
Hear all the women's cries of mourning
Unsteady here now
For they are weak and starving for mercy
Peace, it seems, is unknown
We carry the weight of the casualties where we went wrong
But what can we do to hang on?
To keep us from falling
Into Cold War schism blues

How stupid could you be
Cause this ain't liberty
This war is tyranny
And they're the ones who'll have to bleed

Has made you a fool
We've fought fire with fire and now we're surrounded
Unable to speak
Except to cry out
And wait for your tantrum
But you'll come around with a lie
Speaking in glorious phrases
"A nation in stasis"
We know that unity's gone
Believe me, they're learning
In this desert about you

How stupid could you be
Cause this ain't liberty
This war is tyranny
And they're the ones who'll have to bleed

Everything changes
Everything fell apart
Please stop before we have lost all control
This is just senseless, you know

How stupid could you be
Just change your policies
This war was done for greed
And they're the ones who'll have to bleed

How stupid could you be
This is atrocity
Just oil for Cheney
But they're the ones who'll have to bleed
