Track Name: Goldstein
Goldstein

Well, it’s true that we’re accustomed to bad philosophy
Telemarketing apocalypse as security
Oswald Spengler’s in the house

We won’t call it propaganda or ideology
Washing every thought away with every memory…

Totalitarians on game shows raise the flag on high
There’s a lottery for renditions where we’re all in line

Truth is the new lie
Lies are the new truth
Truth is the new lie
Track Name: Brezhnev
Brezhnev

It’s not fair to compare him with Hitler
Hitler murdered children as a policy
When Iraqi children die they’re collateral damage of the latest hostilities
That’s quite a difference
To their parents
That’s quite a difference

It’s not fair to compare him to Stalin
Stalin tortured people as a policy
Iraqis are tortured it’s a renegade action
The NCOs took it literally
That’s quite a difference
To the men they tortured
That’s quite a difference

It’s not fair to compare him to Mao
The Great Famine was a policy
The benign neglect of New Orleans was a natural catastrophe
That’s quite a difference
To the people who drowned
That’s quite a difference

And this is the way that all governments end
With abject apologists and those that defend
Bush is Breshnev
Bush is Breshnev.
Track Name: the Long War
The Long War

It’s not fair
Nothing’s ever coming
That will right all those wrongs
And there is no one in particular
To set it back to what it was

It’s not right
But no one ever noticed
Damage is way past done
Nothing’s all that damn remarkable
About wrecking everything you’ve ever loved

Jihad and justice league
Are down for a new century
Of wars that can’t be won
We are the reality:
cannon fodder casualties
And have been all along

It’s not fair
No one is responsible
To set it all in line
And there’s no one that’s all that desperate
To identify the cause this time

It’s not right
No one will admit it
Was just a common lie
And there’s nothing all that damn remarkable
About you hiding it from sight

Power and profit scheme
Are down for a new century
Of warring short and long
We are the reality:
cannon fodder casualties
And have been all along

Power and profit scheme
Are down for an eternity
Of wars that won’t be won
Defeat and victory
Are bad for business equally
My unfortunate son

The Long War
Track Name: Dreamland
Dreamland

Your dreamland is my wasteland.
Track Name: Crusade
Crusade (unlisted track on the CD version)

Let’s pick up the broken things
And shatter them in a hundred pieces more
The better to embolden mistakes
Convert them in a thousand-year long war

The dawn of a new assassin
Let’s live on the desperate edge of fear
And what we annihilate
Are the only things we thought were clear

We’ll valorize poverty
As the only thing that will keep you free
And amass everything that we can
And declare that our theft makes us holy

The mullahs of circumstance
Will shore up the bunker for the siege
A tithe for a suitcase bomb
To insure a catastrophe

Our Crusade
