The Lyrics

[during instrumental intro]
{We're at War}
{in Iraq}
{Uh-uh, uh-huhthey fed us false facts}
{We're at War}
{were lied to 'bout what it was for}
{this War}
{were lied to 'bout what it was for}
{still more lies in store}
{About this War}

Ooh, this War is threatening
our way of life today
George Bush says, "We must torture"
Well, man, we're gonna rue that day

Warkills men, we're in Iraq to stay
It seems to be that way
Forwhat man? Come on, man, please explain
as lives go down the drain
{down the drain, yeah}
{come on, man, tell us, yeah, please explain, yeah}

Oohsee the wives; they're weepin'
Sadness; Much grief and pain
Bush has misused our Army
Damn fool; the cost is great

Morekillin', more dyin' every day
More lyin'; on the way
Musttell them; we want the truth today
We need them to explain
{explain, man}
{Come on, explain}
{Come on, man, please explain}
{Make it plain, man, explain}
{Why so many lives go down the drain each day}

{come on, man, won't you please explain}
{What did you hope to gain?}
{I hope this ain't too lame}

{you treat us with disdain}

{Man, your f*cking Iraq War is Insane}
{It's so lame}

[the (bracketed) sections below are for Merry Clayton's lead vocal here in the OS]
(What was your plan, explain?)
(What did you hope to gain?)
(Needed more men; was plain)
(you failed; but still remain)
(Your lying is so lame)
(Folks die for your sick game)

{Die in vain; Lives down the drain}
{They die in vain, yeah}
{And their lives go down the drain, yeah}

Man, this stuff don't make sense
Can't trust a thing they say
Iraq's become a Hell, yeah
Worse than under Hussein

Thissucks man
More War and Death each day
This War is just Insane
More War and Death and Pain
We see more Death each day
bin Laden smiles in cave

I tell you whatMister
Those lives you pissed away
They haunt us every day
But you don't have no shame
You're a disgrace, I say
You won't accept the blame
Should be dismissed today
{can't remain, go away}
{take your lyin' ass}
{and go on back to your ranch}
{in Crawford, Texas, man}
{yeah, go get screwed and take Cheney}
{and Rumsfeld with you, too, dude}

Thanks, alvin...with the Election coming up I thought this might be a good reminder about the Real Issues...Honesty, competence, responsibility...and who "pays the check" when those in charge bypass their Oath of Office in favor of furthering their Political Agenda...
