[ Politics & Religion ] Tell It Like It Is

Why don't you lie to yourself some more
About how God is for, not against the war?
And when you find yourself knocking on Heaven's door
Don't act suprised

If nobody let's you in

No holding back as you justify attack
Under technicality of self defense
Calm and serene is an ocean between
Without hill or bunker across the vast expense
Striking pre-emptive in a hardly redemptive
Locking on of missiles, letting God sort the remains
Annihilate the enemy in your perverse necessity
To live onward, have children and poison their brains

Why don't you tell yourself another bedtime story
Brimming with honor, victory in war and glory?
As you're on your knees praying, rewriting history
Don't be alarmed

When you are awakened at Midnight

With Jesus standing over you
Bleeding profusely from his wounds through and through
As he marks your forehead with the Sign of the Dead
All the better

For the Angel of Death to find you

Spiraling down into the blackened abyss
Your new Father awaits, your fate His to decide
All is amiss, How did it come to this?
Satan laughing, greets you with wings opened wide
Eternity in Hell to rot, but not all alone
Surrounded by those unfortunates who died
At pushbuttons directing mindless Predator Drone
Mistakenly targeting where terrorists hide

Wrong and Right not quite so Black and White
Anymore, never was, not up for debate
Mutiliated, burned Muslim, Shiite, Kurd
The rage in their eyes as they anxiously wait
With consciences stripped away, you're on your own
Empty is your place in line at St. Peter's gate
No Allies to aid you, mislead, bully, disown
Winds howling with furious blind hate
The opportunity has come and gone for you to atone
The time is now

For you to defend yourself

Let's hear you tell them how you were only doing the right thing
That it was friends, family and country you were protecting
How long will you dance, tap your shoes and sing
Before it occurs to you that

Tough Love is God's Hate

And you don't want to be around when He is really pissed
