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
