The Lyrics

"We Don't Need Another Handout"

Out of the ruins
Out from the deluge
Can't make the same mistake this time
We're still in New Orleans
missed last evacuation
We are the ones they left behind
And I wonder if we are ever going to change
Sinking under the water, till nothing else remains

We don't need another handout
We just need to find a new home
all we want is life beyond
Superdome

Looking for a President
We can rely on
There's gotta be someone
better out there
Love and compassion
Their day is coming
All Bush has are castles
Built in the air

and I wonder if he is
Ever gonna change
Living under the fear
there's nothing in his brains...brains

All New Orleans say
We don't need another handout
We just need to find a new home
All we want is life beyond
Superdome

So what do we do with our lives
We leave a damp mark
Will our story shine like a lark
Or end in the dark
Give it all or nothing

We don't need another handout
We just need to find a new home
All we want is life beyond
Superdome

From what I've read there's more going on in New Orleans than just a natural disaster. I think the latest stories are that those who are still holding out in New Orleans are going to be forced to leave. If confronted with gunfire, soldiers were told to shoot to kill. What kind of place requires military presence to handle the aftermath of a hurricane?

Dead on, the poor people in New Orleans, this should have been their anthem.

OK, so it is funny in a wicked twisted way. Get the point, Mr. George (WMD) Bush?
