“Everybody Knows”

Everybody knows there’s a war going on.
Everybody knows there’s a war.
Everybody knows about the kids that don’t come home.
Yeah, I heard it’s gonna be a long war.
Everybody knows about the bodies in the streets.
Everybody knows there’s a war.
Everybody knows about the mothers and the beasts
Bloodying the Babylon floor.
But could you help us see the reason?
‘Cause it sure ain’t to keep the peace.
For every civilian that we’re slaying,
There’s a war-torn family rising up in hate.
Everybody knows there’s a war going on.
Everybody knows there’s a war.
Everybody knows about the money being made
By the men behind the closed, locked doors.
Everybody knows we like meddling in affairs.
Everybody knows there’s a war.
Near a thousand different bases in a hundred-fifty countries
Makes you wonder what we’re staying for.
Can you imagine what we’d do here
If some foreign power occupied our soil,
And tried to tell us how to live here,
As their bombs ripped through our boys and girls?
Everybody knows there’s a war going on
Everybody knows there’s a war.
Everybody knows you gotta reap what you sow,
So get in line for the fruits of war!
Everybody knows it’s the Christian thing to do.
Everybody knows there’s a war.
Why Jesus Christ, Himself, would probably blow ‘em straight to Hell, While pissing on the golden rule!
And it don’t matter who’s in office.
Or are you still too blind to see?
This war machine rolls on undaunted.
How long before you think it rolls over you and me?
