The Lyrics

A tribute to Jeremy Scahill, and the book of the same name
(INSTRUMENTAL INTRO)

Scary times
We're afraid of terrorists
So you sent some mercenaries
To kill people on your list
When you need to use some torture
Secret prisons fill the bill
Other way you've got them looking
Corporate press, folks on the Hill

CHORUS:
We were wrong to fight your dirty wars, oh yeah
We don't want to fight your dirty wars, no more
We were wrong to fight your dirty wars, oh yeah

(INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE)

Justify it
Call the world a battlefield
That makes everything okay it
Takes to make the bad guys yield
But the targeted drone killings
In your top secret war
Creates new enemies rising
'Gainst the U.S. more and more

CHORUS: REPEAT

(INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE)

CHORUS: REPEAT AND FADE
