The Lyrics

Satire inspired Attorney General John Ashcroft's attempt to drum up falling public support for the unpopular PATRIOT Act, which has been condemned as unconstitutional via resolutions by Alaska, Hawaii, and Vermont and over 100 U.S. cities
(instrumental intro)

This... law's not right, 'cause it's been voted down;
Many states, many towns; it got beat.
John... hit the road, in support of the crown,
Went around, gettin' bad, hostile heat.
Has a bad intent; hates if we're "too free."
"Suspect hostile groups" - he deems you and me.

It's Ash... croft,
Brother John's PATRIOT Salvation Show.
Back up Bush Baby; be loyal, or maybe
If you oppose, Big Brother knows.
Brother John's Show...

(brief instrumental break)

Soon... John Ashcroft will shill:
"No, we are not done yet
With the terrorist threat; things look dim."
Prizes control, but he can't make his case
Selling fear to replace our own whim.
Ashcroft's got to go!
Let's do what it takes.
Vote Bush out and show
PATRIOT mistakes.

It's Ash... croft,
Brother John's PATRIOT Salvation Show.
Back up Bush Baby; be loyal, or maybe
If you oppose, Big Brother knows.
Brother John's Show...

(chorus sings refrain over spoken sermon:)
He will fool ya... scare ya, how he'll fool ya...
He will fool ya... scare ya, how he'll fool ya...
He will fool ya... scare ya, how he'll fool ya...
He will fool ya... scare ya, how he'll fool ya...
He will fool ya... scare ya, how he'll fool ya...

Save this land of ours.
Talk down Bush today.
Let it start to grow.
Send Ashcroft away.

Folly! Folly! Folly! Folly! Folly! Folly! Folly! Folly!

It's Ash... croft, Brother John's PATRIOT Salvation Show.
Back up Bush Baby; be loyal, or maybe
If you oppose, Big Brother knows.
Brother John's Show...

(repeat chorus and fade)
