CALL TO ACTION

lack of understanding is unsurprising when,
you read the daily lies and then, you watch the lies at ten
the lies are bent and broken, mangled, a distortion of the truth
and if you want the facts untangled then of course you need some proof
indeed,
a sleuth to track the facts down, flatfoot, leap from roof to roof, astute
toot suite we'll beat deceit teach elite to cheat
people equal each youth and elder: seldom held as such
but they are anyway our illusion is a crutch
they're supposed to take low pay say thank you very much?
just stand up nobody's gonna take this shit
not a bit, Dave’s gotta quit
just stand up anybody gonna take this shit?
not a bit gotta quit what a tit
we must stand up everybody everywhere
has to fairly share the wealth
just stand up if not for yourself
then for some body else
they sent me more than twenty war lies on lies 24
Rupert the bare faced liar's got plenty more
lies international and fox fucks the facts
the sun is unilluminating, human hating hacks

this is a call to action
missing the dissident smaller factions
listening citizens all attack
cos this is the fissures and flaws and fractures…

the first bomb will double the trouble
and treble the rebel the rabble are bubbled and babbling shovel and scrabble
in rubble and gravel uncovering limbs then
of loved ones and kinsmen horror begins then see terror origins when
pre-emptive striking got to know pre-emptive strike'll start a cycle
you won't like a lot and so it's got to go
it's best avoided lest the mess you've left destroyed bereft of light
renews and rises up to fight this is a call to all unite

this is a call to action
missing the dissident smaller factions
listening citizens all attack
cos this is the fissures and flaws and fractures…

oils the spoils of war that's what they're killing for
killing, drilling more and more the villains chilling 'til
their guns fought and won slaughter sons, daughters, mums
blood spilling, killing some sort of dumb sport
til they run short of funds and still
I’m realizing the lies in the allies eyes
so don't be surprised at the price of the prize
if we all do nothing then nothing will be done
and if you think it's getting bad
it’s only just begun
if we all do nothing then nothing will be done
it’s the first of the last great resource wars
and it’s only just begun

this is a call to action
missing the dissident smaller factions
listening citizens all attack
cos this is the fissures and flaws and fractures…
