THE DECIDER

 

wall of noise song about our president.  It felt good to get it out but it should be a hell of a lot longer.  I just couldn’t bring myself to write another verse.  I get sick thinking about him

The Decider


Hey Hey Hey he's the decider

Everything he decides is right is wrong

Hey Hey he ain't getting any wiser

Probably won't wise up till the day he's dead and gone


First things first: Don''t start a fucking war

If you do figure out what you're fighting it for

Don't start things off based on some lies

don't dishonor those you've sent to die

Just because you're the president

doesn’t mean you can be an incompetent

You don't know it all - Hell, you don't know anything


chorus


Secondly we've got a government

that's been described as a great big tent

Make damn sure that everyone gets in

Not just those who cheat to win

Abrhamoff's bulging wallet

It's corruption man that's what I'm gonna call it

But oh that's right - you have no shame


Hey Hey Hey he's the decider

Everything he decides is right is wrong

Hey Hey he ain't getting any wiser

Probably won't wise up till the day he's dead and gone

And I can't wait that long

Thought I'd write him this song

Help him figure out right from wrong

I can’t wait that long

Thought I'd write him this song

Help him figure out right from wrong


There's so much shit I don't know where to begin

What to leave out what to fit in

Abu Ghraib... now torture's legal

Cheney, Rumsfeld are they dumb or evil

Walter Reed, our veterans hurting

record profits for Halliburton

If killing's our business then business is good

Someday somewhere under a sky so blue

We'll begin to forget all about you

We'll forget that stupid smirk

We'll do the hard work that you shirked

Then we'll elect a different millionaire

Who's convinced us he's a guy who really cares

and maybe he does - and maybe not.

Hey hey hey we're the deciders

Everything we decide is right is wrong
