War is Terrorism


Personnel: Andy T. - vocals; Stanley CCB - guitar; Mark Crow - bass; Kerry Taylor - drums.
The war on terror is a war on freedom
Thought crime will land you in prison
Greater powers to arrest you on suspicion
Ordinary people treated with derision (!)

Hatred and mistrust of your family and friends
Suddenly your neighbours are strangers again
Suspicion burns a hole in the fabric of this land
Knee-jerk condemnation when we fail to understand..

Division of community is nearly complete
Fear and hatred right up your street
Gagged and bound up nice and neat
Dragged out, ground up beneath their feet.

On behalf of the state we're treated all the same
Fitted up, banged up, never seen again
On behalf of the state we're treated all the same
Fitted up, banged up, never seen again.

You could be on the list of potential terrorists
Easily susceptible to extremist views
Detained without charge for six weeks of questioning
Or shot through the head on the ten o'clock news.
