lyrics

Don't work for moments already forgotten.
You know that you can never work nothing from the dead back start walking.
But I've noticed lately they've got the fear in their eyes
and not the ones with the guns, but the ones there beside them and

Over and over again
we're gonna run on forever
and then back around and do the
same damn thing that ruined us then
because he wanted his and him his and him his and him his.

Well Georgie stole like a king as he bought his way in
and then went on vacation to watch with his friends
as the two biggest buildings in the country fell down
while the people that he blamed were right there in his house
and then quietly placed on a plane and flown out
while the rest of the world sat and watched it all happen.
And no one was told of this, only that we'd
fallen victim to terror and terror they heaved
on these two other countries who just happened to have oil
while the number of innocent people who die climbs so

Over and over again
we're gonna run on forever
and then back around and do the
same damn thing that ruined us then
because he wanted his and him his and him his and him his.

Oh no no no, I won't get carried away
by the fear that they've made
as we push into summer.
And then four years fly by with Iraq on our minds
and still no one knows why
because there hasn't been an answer but with
terror alerts as your TV goes red
"It'll happen again if you don't vote ME in!"
But I, I can't even understand what he says,
but it doesn't make a difference 'cause he's a christian
and God wants him in.

Eight years later and nothing has changed
but the jobs and markets yea they're starting to fade.
And the war still ain't over but they're talking about change
But since when has a politicians word meant a thing?
So I think I'm gonna vote for the lesser of evils,
yea the one from less money with no king there beside him.
But I wonder if he can win, if my people and my kin
can see the man who he is
or just the color of his skin so

Over and over again
we're gonna run on forever
and then back around and do the
same damn thing that ruined us then
because he wanted his and him his and him his and him his.
