David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 2

Album
Name of Song: The world we’re in

They must have war,
They must have crime,
No other way to cover
what they fake as their sublime.

Killing is their fetish,
Spying just for kicks,
All another cover
for their endless bag of tricks.

Marketing the “patriot”,
A way to rally troops,
Recruiting for their endless wars,
When exposed they mumble “Oops”.

Purpose has been altered
to win their corporate wars,
Stealing natural resources
out of countries left appalled.

Chorus
Avatars and assassins
appearing out of hand,
Even clones and doppelgangers
that somehow make a stand.
A circus of confusion,
They act like they’re a sooth,
Instead they look like idiots
that pretend they tell the truth.

Bridge
Business just not booming,
We need a war right now,
Announce the latest boogeyman
Must kill them all somehow.
Fighting others’ wars,
Though the pay is really crap,
Blindly following purpose
Our patriots are where it’s at.

Our unbelievable leaders,
No spirit, no one there,
Circuit yapping bodies
Such incompetence, but they dare.

We know what they are up to,
Just amazed to react that way,
Clones replacing dead folk
so they still will have their say.
