American war machine;
They’re rakin’ in the green…
All around the world where
Our flag is unfurled,
Who’s the terrorist nation
Sellin’ bombs to be hurled?
Politicians puffed with power,
War whores ready to devour.
Lawyers and loan sharks setting the trap,
Liberty and justice taking the slap.
Me, mine, and more
Impoverished every shore.
Aid and Own, we’ll
Keep ’em on the hook with a
Big fat loan.
Other nations will let when they
Owe U.S. a debt.
International vigilante cop has
Policing the globe in our
Arrogant helmsman, eager to
Hasty, wasty, full of fear;
Corporate military profiteer.
Taxed to the max we gotta
Face the facts. We’re
Breakin’ our backs for
for me mine and more- – - – - – - – - – - – - -
If I was living in a country that was
at the military mercy of
a gluttonous power
such as the U.S.
I might be moved
to retaliate in
a so-called underhanded manner
(when David goes against Goliath
brute force isn’t David’s best choice).
Let’s live within our means and
adopt habits that ensure all people have
clean water, clean air, and rich soil.
Let’s create love with local community-building.
What reason, then, would anyone have to quarrel?
LOVE IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION- – - – - -
