The Lyrics

This is another serious political parody....
Before both the twins
Ever went down
In another place
Some other town

Each was just
A face in the crowd
Each was just
A face in the crowd

Out in the street
Covered in shrouds
Facing the ground

Laden's regime
Up in the sky
Injured our hearts
Ended their lives

And now it's just
A space in the ground
Now it's just
A space in the ground

Those we defeat
Still fight us now
Our heads in the clouds

Now our regime
Still has to try
Winning their hearts
Despite the lies

And so we trust
The few and the proud
So we trust
The few and the proud

Someday we'll meet
Where peace is found
And war's not allowed

War's not allowed

Where war's not allowed

We're facing it now...

Good, but I think you made the chorus too much like the original

Thanks, Dominic... usually, I alter the chorus more, but this time around, I really couldn't think of anything else.

Well, it worked well for both versions
