These Lies (That Launch Our Wars)

Written By: KernelGreen


These Lies (That Launch Our Wars)
Words and Music by Kernel Copyright March 2004

Bombs and Napalm didn’t stop them.
The Viet Cong weren’t playing Dominoes.
They just kept on fighting ‘til they won
They drove the GIs from their homes.

While spin-doctors we gave power
Made up our enemies:
The red scare became the holy grail
For our munitions factories.

These Lies That Launch our Wars
Greed and Power are the score
To These Lies We’re Killing For.

And where Tigris meets Euphrates
No mass weapons, no 911 tie--
Just world leaders trading blood for oil
And people on both sides that died.

The spin doctors we give power
And mullahs hiding in their mosques
Preach a rhetoric of hate and fear--
See how a human race is lost--
