My Government's A Terrorist

about

This is a previously unreleased track from the Grip Grand vaults, recorded in 2007 during the George W. Bush administration--but, sadly, applicable to numerous eras in US (and world) history.

Written by Grip Grand

My government's a terrorist
And when the devil comes, he'll be American
Not speaking in Arabic or tongues
I think my government's a terrorist
Democracy is just another casualty of secret operations internationally
My government's a terrorist
Drug and weapon funded
And the war will never end 'cuz we can make that money from it
So my government's a terrorist,
keeps the people scared of it
Says how much we need them, like we're fucked and they're aware of it
My government's a terrorist
Plus it's an embarrassment,
'Cuz freedom isn't all mistreating prisoners and harassment
My government's a terrorist
It's self-righteous, and dogmatic, and arrogant
And anyone who questions is a heretic
My government's a terrorist
And it can drop a bomb into the chimney of a building
But it can't avoid civilians and children?
A terrorist, backed by a sheriff that'll
Raise the flag and stab you in the back
While you stare at it

My government's a terrorist
Just like your government's a terrorist
They make the young and the poor fight and die for them
They get all the politicians to lie for them
We say we got God on our side
You say you got God on your side
Well I think we probably both right
Do you think he want us to both die?

My government's a terrorist
Buggin' every residence
Illegal wiretap at the discretion of the President
My government's a terrorist
Make the people pay
Fighting for freedom, simultaneously taking it away
'Cuz my government's a terrorist
If you create the problem then you make it disappear
That doesn't count as taking care of it
The situation's perilous
Danger is the watchword
False sense of security, alert levels are doctored
So my government's a terrorist
We are broke and they are rich
Perpetuate a state of war while forcing you to pay for it
When the bodies of your babies get
Sent home in the cargo hold of a naval container ship
Do you feel like a patriot?
It's the home of bravery and they believe they're saving it
Target on your back, but it's your government that painted it
They say you're coming home
I guess they haven't set a date for it but "later"
If your life is worth a damn, then why they wasting it?

My government's a terrorist
Just like your government's a terrorist
They make the young and the poor fight and die for them
They get all the politicians to lie for them
We say we got God on our side
You say you got God on your side
Well I think we probably both right
Do you think he want us to both die?
