The Lyrics

Obsessed with secrecy, Bush orders his FBI to request members of Congress to take lie detector tests to prevent information leaks regarding the 9/11 investigation - opposed by both Republicans and Democrats.
(instrumental intro)

Dumb plan! Bush now wants to crack down.
It's a dumb plan, to stop leaks all around.
It's a dumb plan, to have FBI hound
The congressional inquiry.

Dumb plan! 'Cause both parties said no.
It's a dumb plan! Ill-conceived from get-go.
Bush says, "Hey there! Cannot leak what you find
About 9/11's big crime."

You'll hear Bush say, "Lie, and you'll pay!"
You'll hear Bush say, "Lie, and you'll pay!"
Leaks have made this "king" sore; just hear the Bush Boy,
Congress must not make any noise.

You'll hear Bush say, "Lie, and you'll pay!"
You'll hear Bush say, "Lie, and you'll pay!"
When will Dubya come clean?
Afghan gas pipeline deal,
That Bush did whatever to seal.

Dumb man... fronts an oligarchy.
Shrub's a dumb man, prefers plutocracy.
He's a dumb man, power beyond his dreams.
But does not yet know one damned thing.

Dumb man... can't be left by himself.
He's a dumb man, with the mind of an elf.
We say, "Whoa, there - FBI, CIA,
Don't take our liberties away!"

You'll hear Bush say, "Lie, and you'll pay!"
You'll hear Bush say, "Lie, and you'll pay!"
Leaks have made this "king" sore; just hear the Bush Boy,
"Congress must not make any noise."

You'll hear Bush say, "Lie, and you'll pay!"
You'll hear Bush say, "Lie, and you'll pay!"
When will Dubya come clean?
Afghan gas pipeline deal,
That Bush did whatever to seal.

Dumb plan! Whom does Bush now accuse
Of disloyalty? Why does Cheney refuse
To cooperate? Why the big shuck-and-jive?
Their inaction cost many lives.

So then, we must seriously
Tell this dumb man, "Don't make history repeat.
There's no place for... spies from our CIA.
You're not King of the U.S.A."

You'll hear Bush say, "Lie, and you'll pay!"
You'll hear Bush say, "Lie, and you'll pay!"
Leaks have made this "king" sore; just hear the Bush Boy,
"Congress must not make any noise."

"Lie, and you'll pay."
Bush tells the Congress now, "Lie, and you'll pay."
Bush tells the Congress now, "Lie, and you'll pay."
It's a dumb plan, to stop leaks all around.
It's a dumb plan, to have FBI hound
Those in Congress, now your polls have lost ground.

"Lie, and you'll pay."
Bush tells Congress, "Lie, and you'll pay."
Dumb plan! Whom does Bush now accuse
Of disloyalty? Why does Cheney refuse...

"Lie, and you'll pay."
"Lie, and you'll pay."
"Lie, and you'll pay."
"Lie, and you'll pay."

(repeat and fade)
