The Lyrics

Wars and violence
Making silence
From rushing in
Into the Arab world
Hateful Sunnis
Rouse the loonies
Like the Taliban
While the bullets whirl

All they ever wanted
All they ever needed
Was fear and firearms
Wars are very
Unnecessary
They can only do harm

Houses broken
Flesh is smokin'
Deficits immense
Reasons trivial
Treasures remain
And the poor's pain
War is meaningless
And regrettable

All they ever wanted
All they ever needed
Was fear and firearms
Wars are very
Unnecessary
Yet we always do harm

All they ever wanted
All they ever needed
Was fear and firearms
Military
People are wary
When they choose to do harm

All they ever wanted
All they ever needed
Was fear and firearms
Towns are harried
People are buried
As insurgents do harm

Enjoy the violence

ewwww, somber (as befits a DM song). Appropos as reports today indicate GWB's approval rating is at it's all-time lowest.

Well, seeing as how you are on a DM trip atm, I was hoping you would get around to this OS. It was worth the wait.

Thanks, Agrimorfee. I suspect that Dubya's approval will continue to go down during this term. Whether or not this means a Democrat will win next time is mostly dependent on the kind of candidate they produce by 2008. Thanks, AFW; I found this one easier to write than most, sense the chorus is so strong in the original. Thanks also to you, Red. I'm looking forward to your next Alice in Chains parody. Are you liking Jerry Cantrell anymore than you said last time? For me, his solo stuff kind of grows on ya after a while. It's not as readily accessible as AIC was.
