Taking stock of what I see
Ruthless men through history

Empty words of liberty
Liars rule and rulers lie

The powerless are left to cry
Empty promises and empathy
Fake as tears of sympathy
Words are used to sanitize

Ethnic cleansing sounds so clean
Makes mass murder sound serene.

Bombs away, all aboard
Kill civilians, water board
Screw that old Geneva accord

War is happening everywhere
I think I’ll go shampoo my hair
