Falling for It
Look at all the people in their living rooms With their eyes all glued to the evening news Catch 'em at a moment when they're all afraid And then sell them well on the plans you've made All the citizens who listen and believe Falling just the same Falling into line 'cause we did not know Of the bait and switch and the shadow show When you faked the truth To make your claims You played our fears For your own gain Then we needed a leader and you're all we had So we told ourselves you were not that bad You took the opportunity to have your way While our wounds still bled we were led astray All the the fears that came descending on us then Falling just the same Falling like the towers in a cloud that hung So it blocked our view and it hid the sun When our eyes were down In all that pain With your slight of hand You cast the blame You said that it was over when it had just begun Saying, job well done as if the war was won But all of us are watching as the numbers climb Of the killed and injured, dead and dying All the soldiers that have fallen in this war Falling just the same Falling for the trick that you played on us When you made those lies and betrayed our trust As if this war Was just your game You're breaking down Our country's name
