lyrics

THE BREAKING NEWS FLASHED ON MY SCREEN
BLOOD RED WORDS IN THE DATA STREAM
HERALDING SOME SIGHTS SO OBSCENE
I WATCHED THE HORROR PLAY OUT ALL DAY
BEAMED 24/7 FROM OUTER SPACE
THE GOVERNMENT JUST EXPLAINED IT AWAY

BUT ITS OK BECAUSE WERE DOING IT FOR THE OIL
DON'T YOU STAND IN OUR WAY
BUT ITS OK BECAUSE WERE DOING IT FOR THE SPOILS
WE'LL LAY YOUR COUNTRY TO WASTE

I SAW THE HOMELESS AND REFUGEES
FELL THEIR HOMES AS THE SIRENS SCREAMED
AND MISSILES STALKED THE CITY STREETS
THE SPOKESMAN SPILLED HIS RHETORIC
CHAPTER AND VERSE FOR THE SICK
AND THE SHEEP DID SWALLOW EVERY WORD

BUT ITS OK BECAUSE WERE DOING IT FOR THE OIL
DON'T YOU STAND IN OUR WAY
BUT ITS OK BECAUSE WERE DOING IT FOR THE SPOILS
WE'LL LAY YOUR COUNTRY TO WASTE

A THOUSAND GRAPHIC IMAGES GET BURNED INTO MY BRAIN
JUST WATCHING THE NEWS EVERY DAY
BODIES IN THE SUNFLOWER FIELDS
CHILDREN USED AS HUMAN SHIELDS
ITS ENOUGH TO DRIVE A MAN INSANE

BUT ITS OK BECAUSE WERE DOING IT FOR THE OIL
DON'T YOU STAND IN OUR WAY
BUT ITS OK BECAUSE WERE DOING IT FOR THE SPOILS
WE'LL LAY YOUR COUNTRY TO WASTE
BUT ITS OK, WE'VE GOT GOD ON OUR SIDE
DON'T YOU QUESTION OUR RIGHTS
BUT ITS OK WE'LL FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT
WE'VE GOT YOU IN OUR SIGHTS

Its a bit like a car crash involving members of - E.L.O, Genesis, Human League, Kraftwerk, Motorhead and Yes. With John Shaft and Starsky and Hutch being the first on the scene, with Beck and Air driving the ambulances! ... more
