The Lyrics

A demonstration by unarmed students is met with deadly force by soldiers: Kent State 1970 (4 dead), Tiananmen Square 1989 (hundreds dead, exaxt number unknown).
Tin soldiers and Red Guards coming
They're sent here by Chairman Deng
The news has become mind-numbing
Hundreds dead in Tiananmen

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are gunning us down
Even though we are unarmed
What if you spoke out and
Soon were dead on the ground?
How can we not be alarmed?

Ah, la la la la...

Gonna stand up to it
Standing in front of a tank
That is a tough thing to do
What if you knew her and
Found her dead in the square?
Why do they kill me and you?

Tin soldiers and Red Guards coming
They're sent here by Chairman Deng
The news has become mind-numbing
Hundreds dead in Tiananmen
Hundreds dead in Tiananmen (how many more?)
[Repeat last line]

Perfect parody subject matter for this song!

Sadly an all-too-familiar political-military motif throughout our planet's human history. 5's

Makes you wonder how strange we must look to others when we get wrapped around the axel over the most trivial of freedoms that we think may be eroding like the word GOD in the Pledge of Alligence. Freedom is precious. Great parody Steve.

Four, hundreds... either way it still sucks! Nice work, Steve.
