Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Satire about Bush's fascist Terrorism Information and Prevention System (TIPS) of citizen snooping
(instrumental intro)

Unwanted new thugs - no, they won't miss a trick.
They're the eyes and ears of the czar - feel their heels, when they kick.
Unwanted new thugs - given powers that we dread.
They're the country's domestic spies - our civil rights were shed.

Doesn't it make you nervous?
Wondering what they'll do?
Our rights they would steal just to prop up Bush's coup...
Sieg Heil to W.

(instrumental break)

Unwanted new thugs - dissent they'll kill.
Now you can't talk too much, or possess free will.
Unwanted new thugs - better watch what you say.
They got powers that you can't fight - or they'll just make you go away.

Doesn't it make you nervous?
Wondering what they'll do?
Our rights they would steal just to prop up Bush's coup...
Sieg Heil to W.

(instrumental break)

Unwanted new thugs - spies in your neighborhood.
They are there to report who's "bad" - people whom they deem are "no good."
Unwanted new thugs - what they're all about:
If you're not for the Bush machine, they want you to just get out.

Doesn't it make you nervous?
Wondering what they'll do?
Our rights they would steal just to prop up Bush's coup...
Sieg Heil to W.

(instrumental ending)
