This Is The War That Never Ends

This is the war that never ends
Yes it goes on and on, my friend
Some people started fighting it a long time ago
And now they keep on fighting it because it's all they know

This is a war to Whack-A-Mole
To shove some shit back in its hole
This is a war to cancel the American Dream
A war that will continue 'til we cancel this regime

This is the war that never ends
Yes it goes on and on, my friend
Some people started fighting it a long time ago
And now they keep on fighting it because it's all they know


This is the war that cannot end
Or Bush will have to make amends
Both the House and Senate might be sent up for trial
And frog-marched off to Leavenworth to stay there for a while

This is the war that never ends
Yes it goes on and on, my friend
Some people started fighting it a long time ago
And now they keep on fighting it because it's all they know

This is the war that will not cease
Not While our debt load can increase
For generations we'll be paying the bill
So Cheney, Bush and Rummy can get out there and kill!

This is the war that never ends
Yes it goes on and on, my friend
Some people started fighting it a long time ago
And now they keep on fighting it because it's all they know

This ain't some war on your TeeVee
This is a war on you and me
Our Constitution has been shredded and cut
And you won't be a citizen the moment you say, "What!?"

This is the war that never ends
Yes it goes on and on, my friend
Some people started fighting it a long time ago
And now they keep on fighting it because it's all they know

This is a war for Muslim oil
A war to capture foreign soil
Since we don't make nuthin' here in Murka no more
Let's export some Shock n' Awe. Let's go start a war

This is the war that never ends
Yes it goes on and on, my friend
Some people started fighting it a long time ago
And now they keep on fighting it because it's all they know

This is a war to rule the world
To keep the dollar bill unfurled
This is a war to prop up a Republican Fuhrer
And they're not gonna quit this thing, of that you can be sure

This is the war that never ends
Yes it goes on and on, my friend
Some people started fighting it a long time ago
And now they keep on fighting it because it's all they know

This is a war to change the rules
Yes they take all of us for fools
They plan to draft our children and make us live in fear
Anyone who's out of line will simply disappear

This is the war that never ends
Yes it goes on and on, my friend
Some people started fighting it a long time ago
And now they keep on fighting it because it's all they know

They bring our nation to its knees
They grab and torture whom they please
They turn the world against us and they steal as they do
And all the blood and money it will come from me and you

This is the war that never ends
Yes it goes on and on, my friend
Some people started fighting it a long time ago
And now they keep on fighting it because it's all they know

This is the war that never ends
Your deployment will extend
When there's not much left of you but torso and head
They'll toss you out into the street because they need the bed

This is the war that never ends
Yes it goes on and on, my friend
Some people started fighting it a long time ago
And now they keep on fighting it because it's all they know

This is a war for Jesus Christ
He wants a pe-tro-le-um heist
He wants waterboarding! He wants testicles wired!
Pass the ammunition -- it's a Crusade that's required!

This is the war that never ends
Yes it goes on and on, my friend
Some people started fighting it a long time ago
And now they keep on fighting it because it's all they know

This is a war that will not end
'Til we come home again, my friend
'Til we remake America the land of the free
Not untill America's returned to you and me

This is the war that never ends
Yes it goes on and on, my friend
Some people started fighting it a long time ago
And now they keep on fighting it because it's all they know

This is The War That Never Ends

Stop crying about it all for a minute, and add your own verse in comments --

this could be huge . . .

Frames exist within larger frames. Draw a larger frame around your opponent's frame; he will appear wrong or insufficient. This is how wizards play.

Terror shall not prevail  (copyright michael dunkley 2002)

Nowhere to hide, no place to run
People everywhere living under the gun
All I know is how I feel
Fear is a lie, only love is real
Might want to holler, might want to wail
But terror shall not prevail

I wonder what's happening so I turn on the news
Brand new channel, same old blues
Why's it so hard just to get along?
People and belief-systems tangled up wrong
Peace on the planet's like the holy grail
But terror shall not prevail

*Someone gets a payoff just to keep me afraid
It's just their agenda, it's not how I'm made
Existential panic is not my style
We're only here for a while

Why's it so hard just to get along?
People and belief-systems tangled up strong
They take young minds and they mold them like clay
Stroking their machine-guns, teaching them to pray
Sometimes I wonder what's not for sale
But terror shall not prevail

God's on our side, we hate the enemy
He's on the other side, it's simple you see
Written in the holy books in black and white
The more you struggle, the more you're right
You got the tiger so you tweak his tail
But terror shall not prevail

*

The government says to believe what they say
If you wanna survive you got to play it that way
I take my medication regular. like the shrink said I should
You ask me how I feel, I say 'I think I feel good'
Joined the religion of the frustrated male
But terror shall not prevail

I see the double-dealing demon deep inside of me
Potatochips, dictatorships, dig that anarchy
Forever searching for a better way through
Scylla and Charybdis, me and you
Civilisation's like a train off the rails
But terror shall not prevail

*

Life gave us brains for to see the light
Life gave us hands to be tender, not fight
Life gave us hearts just to keep it all real
Life gave us everything, pretty sweet deal
We come in fresh, but we let it get stale
But terror shall not prevail

My soul believes it'll all work out fine
It's bound for glory, drinking mystic wine
My mind can't believe what I see with my eyes
I pray for understanding, pray to be wise
Sometimes I get it, mostly I fail
But terror shall not prevail

*
