The Lyrics

They strap themselves in cars that are then wired up to blow.
They drive up real close, and then let go.
He says there's been progress, but we know he's a liar.
It's come to this: a quagmire.

Ill-fated fight--we're in there alone.
The far right someday for this fiasco'll have to atone.
He says we're winning, but we know he's a liar.
It's come to this: a quagmire.

Iraq had a hold on Bush, right from the start.
Dipsh*t's brain's slight; the country is torn apart.
He keeps pumpin' in money; he's a fool.
Well, the cities they burn, as do big oil pools.

Well, home we go? Oh, not just yet! Samarra's on fire.
The coalition splits; they say their time has expired.
His words say it's fine, but his words lie.
He's got us in a quagmire.

This is a quagmire.
Burning up with fire.
Bush et al screwing us--liars.
Increasing ire.
Both a quagmire and a pyre.
Take us home?

Never apologize for telling the truth, John! You've told the truth here! Unlike George McGovern, I will not spend the next 32 years being classy about it; I'm gonna keep on saying, "I told you so!" So should you!
