The Lyrics

I find it disturbing that Obama in 2008 promised to undo many of the Bush-era spy methods and has instead further expanded the NSA's and other Intel agencies (as well as the IRS) abilities to gather information on private US citizens. From phone calls to Internet searches and use of military drones for domestic spying, we are starting to enter a very real Orwellian nightmare of "Big Brother." Add CCTV surveillance going up all aorund the nation and does this really add up to claims of "National Security?" Or is this the beginning of the Govt. telling you what's best for you and invading your privacy at alarming levels? Data mining by Intel agencies should be illegal in this Constitutional Republic, increasing being subjugated to Shadow Ops...
Gov tapped Verizon
“War on Terror” given as the reason
More data mining through operation PRISM
Now who knows who the hell is listenin’???

[and watchin’???]

Gov tapped Verizon
Add drones spyin’ on citizens
“Big Brother” mentality is settlin’ in
Now who knows who the hell is listenin’???

[and watchin'???]

Gov tapped Verizon
“National Security” is the price we pay
But just to what end?
Insisting that Gov Intel preserves our way
Leads the way, towards our “protection”

“War on Terror” given as the reason
More data mining through operation PRISM
Now who knows who the hell is listenin’???

[and watchin’???]
Oddbama is now Fraudbama. Gitmo still open and attack drones still operating. US lost in Iraq and still losing in Afghanistan. Killing Saddam and Osama means little as Al Qaida remains a serious threat, the Talis are back, Iran is sending fighters all over the ME, Assad continues to butcher his people, Iran continues to develop a nuke against Israel, and N Korea (although having backed down) is still trying to develop a 3-stage missile to mate a nuke and threaten S Korea, Japan, the West coast of the US and well as Alaska, Hawaii, and Guam. THOSE are serious threats to the US, not your avg. Joe on the phone or surfing the Net!
