Sunrise In Cairo

Current events motivated me to write this song: 'How many lies will Bush tell us to wage war in Iraq?'
Topical lyrical theme and political protest combines elements of blues and reggae musical styles.
Sunrise in Cairo,
the room was a mess..
I went to a party last night
at the wrong address
My head was aching
from the teargas they used
A man with no country
and nothing to lose..

I want to know
Can you tell me?
I want to know
Do you get the blues?

The gunfire this morning
The tank in the street
The police came knocking
There was blood at their feet
On the hunt for Bin Laden
Qandahar to Baghdad
How many lies will Bush tell us
to wage war in Iraq?

I want to know
Can you tell me?
I want to know
Do you get the blues?

The people were singing
Dancing in the street
The children were laughing
How they love to live in peace
Suicide bomber
Gaza shantytown
Will the Israeli armor
put Palestine people down?

I want to know
Can you tell me?
I want to know
Do you get the blues?
