The Lyrics

I happen to like Bush. He has me worried though.
He made the ashes
It was alleged
This Sphinx had many links to crime
There was no phoenix
Just conflagration
He fanned the flames that torched his time
And I wonder if Bush is any less capricious
Freedom kindles a fire will common sense remain?

We don't need another Nero
We don't need to blaze the way Rome
All we want is life beyond the battle zone

Caucus elect us some worthy icon
There's got to be something better I swear
War and aggression, their flames are lickin'
War chests are faggots burning with flair*
And I wonder if we are ever can contain it
Freedom over the years still holding what remains
All the people say

We don't need another Nero
We don't need to blaze our way Rome
All we see is life outside the Senate Dome

So, who can we ask for our lives?
I takes only a match
Will our glory shine bright despite?
Or is there a catch?
Is it all or nothing?

"...they threw another faggot on the fire."

Don't count on humanity to end war. All people are born evil and violent, and the alternatives to warring are even worse. The whole conflagration in the Middle East is just one more inevitable flare-up and Bush had nothing to do with it--which is why he mostly continues to have nothing to do with it.
