September 11th, Andrew Horabin

Where were you on September 11th,
did you find a television and sit yourself down?
Did it look like America was a victim,
of terrorism of the worst kind?
Where were you on September 11th,
back in the year 1973,
when the CIA sponsored the
bombing of Pinochet's Palace in Chile??

Where were you in 1954,
when the US Government sponsored a coup,
and the 120,000 Guatemalan peasants,
lost their lives at the hands of the dictators the US installed?

But all the stars send the hat around,
millions of dollars were raised and found,
but when people die across the sea,
you know it has nothing to do with you and me...

...and 1965 in Indonesia,
800,000 people lost their lives,
when the US sponsored coups against democracies,
Timor lost a quarter of a million more in '75...

...and we're in Hollywood,
we all know who's good,
the Red, White and Blue,
they're with me and you,
cause you are either with the States,
or with the terrorists,
but it's the same thing,
the US is just the best at it...
ooh, ooh, ooh, oooh...

What do we know about places like Panama,
why do the bells ring for El Salvador,
Iraq, Somalia, Viet Nam, Nicaraagua...?
Did you know there are still people,
dyin' in the Gulf War?

How did we get to be blinded by media?
Why are we sick from the things they are feeding us?
This George Bush Jr. is more than a terrorist,
breeding and training, he's clearly the best at it!

Where were you on September 11th?
Were you sickened and terrified and praying for peace?
Did your fear only grow when the US Government,
went to war again and invited us all to take a piece?

Cause we're in Hollywood,
we all know who's good,
the Red, White and Blue,
they're with me and you!
You are either with the States,
or with the terrorists,
but it's the same thing,
the US is just the best at it...
ooh, ooh, ooh, oooh...
