The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

Their unspeakable sheer madness:
Endless war and nuclear winter.
Fear that is within you now,
Used to achieve their ends.

For their schemes, they'll hatch new scapegoats.
Bush the Dope and all his rotten
Cabal of fat cats bleed us now
For billionaires, their friends.

Bushies blunder while they're crowing;
Commit crime, commit treason.
Forcing what we don't accept,
Using fear to reign us in.
Bush seeks to treat us all like children...
His disgraceful use of power, lies, and spin.

Bush's brethren hold much power;
Hate resisters and all others.
Disaster from their thuggishness;
Shrub jeered by crowds today.

More bad news for Bush is mountin' -
He's discovered just how painful.
What he's promised for the future:
Be more right-wing than today.

(instrumental break)

So our cities start to crumble;
Infrastructure falls around us.
Dim Son, on us, is raiding
All our gold for his war spree.

War attrition in the desert
Of Iraq, that's where Bush leads us.
Grabbed their land, but not their hearts;
Oil pumped from there for free.
Bombing innocents, and busting
Our free speech, by Shrub's decree...

Bush's brethren hold much power;
Hate resisters and all others.
Disaster from their thuggishness;
Shrub jeered by crowds today.

Bush's throng, to him, are clinging,
With the faith of True Believers:
"How dare they defy us!?
Screw their kind! We'll have our way!"

(instrumental ending)
