about

This is a song about a war and a president - or, about some wars and some presidents - depending on how you look at it.

lyrics

You look up at the sky for something new; nothing but zeroes coming through.
Square your shoulders for a fight; so someone else can sleep at night.
Isn't it just a war, to keep bread on the table?
What is the killing for - an American fable?
Where the man running the ship, is just servicing his lip, so he can sleep at night.
Sometime she has to stand alone; thousands of miles from her home.
Liberty rests her feet on Satan's throne.
Silently she knows ...
You can't build on the desert sand, and you can't drink the water.
Try to make a stand, but your words are hollow.
When your eyes are filled with dust, and your gun's caked with rust, and you can't sleep at night.
Your leader's just a man - not a king or a savior.
But your hopes are in his hands, so you'll rename his failure.
As something you can trust - or, at least, not think of - so you can sleep at night.
