The Lyrics

The "turnover" occurs next Wednesday.
Iraq Charade

Losing our asses where
Boneheads got us in that place,
Cooking the words they say.
Searching by not finding
Anything they said was there.
They're lost in Iraq charade.

They got us stuck in a place much too far away.
Neo "intellectuals"—not so smart.
They try to talk over their f*uckup with each wors'ning day.
We've lost, because of bonehead games they play.

Thoughts of leaving disappear
Every time we hear more lies—
Fabrications hard to disguise.
Should it be branded treason
Or hubris? Either way,
We're lost in Iraq charade.

It's good to see somebody who can see thru the unbrilliant disguise. Bravo!
