The Lyrics

The airlines have for years resisted federalizing airport security - partly due to support from right wing Republicans ideologically opposed to the idea, even now, after 9-11.
(instrumental intro)

Airports had loose security.
Still the G.O.P. whines about a federal scheme
To take over control
Catching hijacker crooks.
Makes sense to have federal guards.
No more profits for lives.
G.O.P.'s getting hives.

Privatized security
Failed, 9-11 proved.
Privatized security...
Costing lives
Who's watching for, watching for,
Watching for terrorists?

"Safe" is a word.
So safe is Shrub.
Keeping planes on the ground,
Maybe that ain't enough.
The world still wants to know:
Can hijackers get in?
Would they let us know, or lie
To protect Bush's pride?
Laissez-faire's costing lives.

Privatized security
Failed, 9-11 proved.
Privatized security...
Costing lives.
Who's watching for, watching for,
Watching for terrorists?

(instrumental break)

G.O.P. won't agree up front, you'll see
Anti-government ideology.
The feds are the folks they despise
They still refuse to look
To change

Privatized security
Failed, 9-11 proved.
Privatized security...
Costing lives.
Who's watching for, watching for,
Watching for terrorists?

(repeat chorus and fade)
