Tell Me Why

John Perry
Language: English



we lived a nightmare
the world was on our side
you launched a false war
serving only to divide

tell me why

you say we're winning
when you know it can't be done
you're spinning straight faced
to mothers giving you their sons

tell me why

You got the talking heads to do your shilling
You lied us into shock and awe and killing
Don't give a damn 'bout all the blood you're spilling

tell me why

another photo op
using troops to sell your scam
crafting talking points
to cover for the fact you have no plan

tell me why

millions running
seeking refuge far from home
freedom shattered
sudden widows all alone

tell me why

You got the talking heads to do your shilling
You lied us into shock and awe and killing
Don't give a damn 'bout all the blood you're spilling

tell me why

small town America
comes a knock upon the door
from the next room
dad sees mama cryin' on the floor
he doesn't need to ask
he knows his only boy is gone
hey mister white house man
here's another white cross for your lawn

tell me why
