Johnny Got His Shotty

February 28, 2011
God Give me rest
From this world I live in.
I don't wanna be ignorant
but these news headlines
are driving me insane.

Flags waving and slogans spouting
some bull**** about liberty.
Home of the Free.
Countless have died
are we free-er
Than Canada or Australia?
No, sir, I can't tell.
Screw your Liberty Bell.

Somebody said, "Lets fight for liberty!"
But what is liberty?
Just another abstract word
Like freedom.

Tell me what is liberty?
Tell me just what were fighting for
This world full of war
Wasn't what I bargained for.

Oh, but these men are heroes
protecting our nation,
Death before Dishonor.
Sounds wonderfully noble.

But what would the dead say?
Did they die thinking
of liberty, justice, freedom for all?
No. They died with screams and sobs
Fighting a fight that wasn't theirs.
