We Want The Truth!

For the ten year anniversary of September 11th 2001, I thought it appropriate to mark the occasion by writing a song for the thousands of people who still haven’t found justice for their murder that day.  Here’s the lyrics.  The tune has just been recorded and posted on youtube and other places…

It’s hard to wrap your head around the blackest kind of evil

That brought the towers down and murdered thousands of our people

The needed justice for the dead has been delayed for far too long

If they’re watching from above they’re singing along with this song

Listen to the architects and hear the words of engineers

They’ve been speaking truth to lies, been doing so for many years

I don’t know who is to blame but this will summarize it all

It wasn’t just two planes that day that made three towers fall

We want the truth – We won’t accept the lies

Our people still seek reckoning for the reasons that they died

Thousands of people perished and millions of people cried

Justice after all this time somehow has been still denied

We know that implosion was more than just perhaps

The impetus and method that caused their sad collapse

They know, they know, but they’ll never tell

The real reasons why they made those towers fell

Neptune has drowned and Atlas just sighed

Truth has been smothered by all of the lies

This cognitive dissonance cannot be relieved

The evil we’re facing just can’t be believed

Do not join the madness, do not be their tool

Do not let them get away and play you for a fool

You know what makes all this just so damned insane?

It’s less about who is, than who is not to blame

The question ain’t so much why they’re such evil fuckers

Question is just how we let them play us all for suckers

Let’s stick Cheney with a dose of sodium pentothal

That’s the place to start at getting to the bottom of it all

Just wake up and cease to be intellectually lazy

Seeking truth is easy and it doesn’t make you crazy

How you react doesn’t matter – you can even taze me

All their lies and subterfuge, none of it will phase me.


I Am Bradley Manning

I’m almost ready to record this one.  Video to come shortly…

 

I outed their official lies

I’m caged as that’s what truth now buys

Lady liberty sits and cries

Helpless under darkened skies

 

You can take me, and you might rape me

When I fall asleep is when you wake me

You can hate me, but you can’t make me

You will not shake me, intimidate me

You will never never ever break me

This I guarantee

I am Bradley, I am Bradley

I am Bradley Manning

 

I can see right through your game

You’re the ones with all the shame

You can’t make me go insane

You’re as irrelevant as pain

 

I am trapped here in a cell

But they’re the ones who’ll be in hell

Though my captors scream and yell

They’re the ones to blame for why our country fell.

 

You can take me, and you might rape me

When I fall asleep is when you wake me

You can hate me, but you can’t make me

You will not shake me, intimidate me

You will never never ever break me

This I guarantee

I am Bradley, I am Bradley

I am Bradley Manning

 

You can throw me in a hole

You can stick me in a hole

You can leave me here in this hole

But you’ll never take away my soul
