The Lyrics

What you read, on tv
Facts to blow your mind
Tell you what to believe
But no, you've got to know
All's not true in the books
History examined, taken apart
Exaggerations and omissions aside
You might just find

Historic lies
Things untrue
Subverting real truth
Historic lies
That lack real proof
Historic lies
Hey, someone goofed
Oft disproved
Oft disproved
Oft disproved

The Trojan Horse
Horsehead ram to shove
It got twisted somehow
Not a gift as such (Virgil's Aeneid)
Czar girl
Was killed, no?
Anna A. led us on*
'Til DNA ended her show
Just a lie
Like old Piltdown Man pride
Orangutan jaw some scientists let slide...
(Fabrication denied)


[More lies to disprove]

Henry Ford was a nice guy, see?
No, he was a racist, a f-cking Nazi!
Dearborn Independent didn't lie
Traitor to U... S of A
Third party supply to the Nazi war drive
George Washington Carver too
Made peanut butter- cool!
Yet another lie
The Aztecs first used
No surprise
Stolen from tribe
Patent for patients that could not chew!
You get it?
Why some races are despised?
Telling lies
Concealing the proof...
* Anna Anderson claimed to be Anastasia. She was a mental patient Franziska Schanzkowska!
