Stars & Stripes
A tyrant is a man who allows his people no freedom,
who is puffed-up by pride,
driven by the lust of power,
impelled by greed,
provoked by thirst for fame.
Divided and conquered,
gripped by fear.
Wishful thinking that it can't happen here.
It's well underway, but nobody knows.
A repeat of history,
that's how it goes.
Tell the people that they're under attack,
by man-eating foes from mars or Iraq.
Send in the troops.
Strike the pre-empt.
Stars & stripes,
learn how to fight.
We come together by the dawn of the light.
Oh, so proudly we hail as the rockets red glare.
Stars & stripes.
Control the airwaves.
Fuel the reaction.
Use every weapon of mass-distraction.
Turn active people into passive consumers.
Feed 'em bogus polls and harebrained rumors.
Cut back civil rights.
Make no mistake,
tell 'em homeland security is now at stake.
