Written immediately following 'Shock & Awe' over Baghdad. Music slightly influenced by Cobain unplugged.

Here's some food for thought. Go on the Internet and research the number of people Saddam killed in the decade leading up to the invasion versus the number killed as a result of OUR invasion of Iraq (with and without including the resultant insurgency).
Burnt out bridges
Hate in the air
Crying streets
Shake in despair..
The son has risen fanged today
And the flag unfurls,
And the flag unfurls..

To do their jobs
So many products they need
Tanks and airplanes
Children's blood feeds the greed
The plan's unveiled
It's WE who kill
And the flag unfurls,
And the flag unfurls..

The last gasps frozen
Clutch of breath
A thousand lifetimes
Robbed by the death
The teardrops bounce off the battle dress
And the flag unfurls,
And the flag unfurls..

Truth is lying
pale in the wind..
The leader is smiling
He says: "We will win"
He won as soon as he made it begin
And the flag unfurls,
And the flag unfurls..

..He won as soon as he made it begin..
