YOU’RE BEING USED, KID

Image hosted by Photobucket.com


Listen up America, and listen up good
It’s time you came to understand, it’s time you understood
You’ve been played and you’ve been had, you’ve been led right down
The garden path that leads to lives being buried in the ground

The President stands in front of flags and speaks of patriots
Conjuring up images of this land, America
But what he will not tell you, and what you cannot see
The lying and the treason, the waste of liberty

(chorus)
Die for a traitor
Die for a god
Die for America
Die for Allah
Die for Jesus Christ
Die for the choir
You’re being used, kid
Die for a liar

Who can really hurt you? Who can make you bleed?
Those who hold you closest, they know just what you need
The stars that shine up in the sky, the sun, the moon, this life
Gone forever from your eyes while killers turn the knife

When you are in combat, when you are in hell
Think about the soldiers who cover you so well
Think about the backup, and all of those you know
Then think about the traitors who are running this here show

(chorus)
Die for a traitor
Die for a god
Die for America
Die for Allah
Die for Jesus Christ
Die for the choir
You’re being used, kid
Die for a liar

Listen up America, and listen up but good
It’s time you came to understand, it’s time you understood
You’ve been played and you’ve been had, you’ve been led right down
The garden path that leads to lives being buried in the ground

The President stands in front of flags and speaks of patriots
Conjuring up images of this land, America
But what he will not tell you, and what you cannot see
The lying and the treason, the rape of liberty

(chorus)
Die for a traitor
Die for a god
Die for America
Die for Allah
Die for Jesus Christ
Die for the choir
You’re being used, kid
Die for a liar

Is this a contest? Allow me to submit my own entry.

A source is a source, of course, of course.
And no one should give up a source, of course.
That is, of course, unless the source
Is the "evil" Karl Rove

A journalist should protect his source,
Unless it's a powerful right-wing force.
Then they can drop the rules, of course,
When the source is Mr. Rove.

Liberals yakkity yak a streak,
And waste your time of day.
But Mr. Rove will never speak,
Unless he has something to say.

The left is beating a long-dead horse,
If they think that Mr. Rove's the source.
And they will never show remorse,
At slandering Karl Rooovvve.


I think mine is funnier than yours.

Yours is funnier than mine. Good sense of the original meter, and to have an actual champion of the wild west defending turd blossom is a real treat.

I think it is impossible to slander Mr. Slander himself, but then again I have never outed a covert agent. Try to explain to the men and women fighting in Iraq what it means to "have your back": It generally suggests that your own team doesn't put a knife in it when it suits their partisan purposes.

But you're song is funnier.
