The Lyrics

Satire about the hapless U.S. Army Private Lynndie England, now undergoing military court martial, who was identified from the infamous video and photographs taken at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq
Sad sight; pics taken by
Guards who had cheered
Attacks without pity;
Used torture and fear
On detainees in Abu... Ghraib; as they leered...
Which tells us

They terrorized; beat.
They planned to torture.
They knew was wrong; but won't end.
They plan to use torture again.

(instrumental break)

Smiled - Lynndie England;
Her fame today:
Like bloodsucking leeches;
Cruel games she played.
She starred in a story,
A trend of race hate...
Which tells us

They terrorized; beat.
They planned to torture.
They knew was wrong; but won't end.
They plan to use torture again.

Revealed - is change coming?
How high did this go?
Prisons slaves, flesh baring,
Attack dogs, blood flow.
Bush chooses to string out
His long siege of Baghdad.
He claims God in heaven
Says war's not so bad...
Said, "Sorry..."

They terrorized; beat.
They planned to torture.
They knew was wrong; but won't end.
They plan to use torture... again...
Again... again...

(instrumental ending)
