Steve Skaith Band - Empires & Us

Lyrics

If I could offer my most humble opinion
Of how he came to make this so-called decision
Don't think it came down to some briefing or document
Don't think it had much to do with human intelligence.

More to the point was that great moment in Congress
The 'Good versus evil' the 'Us versus them' address
The President stops, gazes up to the gallery
Points out a Prime Minister as his most faithful ally.

So get him some answers, discover some reasons
We're going to war now, didn't you hear them?
Our future's at stake, we'll kill to defend it
The special relationship it don't come cheap
Oh no it don't come cheap.

'Good versus evil' wow that's a big one
And 'truth versus lies' - I guess the lies won
Cos how often can you stare through the camera right at me
Swear your hands are full when we can all see they are empty?

So get him some answers, discover some reasons
We're going to war now, didn't you hear them?
Our future's at stake, we'll kill to defend it
The special relationship it don't come cheap.

Of all the baby-booming, all the guitar playing
All the football-loving, ex long hairs
Smiling in some university photo, promising to change the world
(I mean even a little bit)
Promising to change the world -and we get this! (Oh my God.)

Get him some answers, discover some reasons
We're going to war now, didn't you hear them?
Our future's at stake, we'll kill to defend it
The special relationship it don't come cheap

So get him some answers, discover some reasons
We're going to war now, didn't you hear them?
Our future's at stake, we'll kill to defend it
The special relationship it don't come cheap
Oh no it don't come cheap.
