Hey President Don't You Kill For Me

Anti-Idiot-President-Coalition Band
Lingua: Inglese



Scritta nel 2003 dai fratelli Tom e Ron Piechota. Quest'ultimo, a proposito della canzone, ha scritto quanto segue;

"It touches on many issues and themes. Legacy is mentioned and then refrained with the father's war. "From sea to shining sea" is a line from Kate Smith's "God Bless America," which is an American cultural touch-stone, I used it in a going against the grain fashion. Bush senior made a career of visiting flag factories, hence the reminder that Bush the junior's action would be causing a lot more of those to be burned. The slap re the new world order again has the parental connection, again in reverse. The callous nature with which he is about to embark on killing tens of thousands will, indeed, be his reverse Vietnam Memorial, referred to as a "monument of corpses." Mentioning that it will be bigger than Hoover dam reflects back to the legendary economic ineptness of Herbert Hoover. Bush senior killed 100,000 humans in his war. The residual troop deployments are arguably a genesis to 9-11, as codified in Bin Laden's pronouncements. Bush junior once said that Israel's Sharon is "a man of peace." This amazingly unhinged statement offers reference to what most feel is the real fire burning in the Middle East -- occupation. "Shock and awe" is the horrifying battle plan that will produce a hell worse than 9-11. And there are many more references that fall in the obvious column."

Most catchy antiwar song ever! Listen to it twice and you are hooked. Most antiwar songs are depressing. People won't listen to that shit. They will listen to this. Over and over. Please, download and pass around. Send it to every person you've ever met. That would make me happy.

Story Behind the Song
The motivation for this song was patriotism. The motivation for this song was security.
The motivation for this song was leadership.
The motivation for this song was the future.
The motivation for this song was a genuine concern for innocent civilians.
The motivation for this song was a concern for the aftermath of this ill conceived war.

Lyrics
Hey, Mr. President, Don't You Kill for Me!
(By Ron and Tom Piechota)

Hey, Mr. President, don't you kill for me!
(Don't use my taxes for your insanity)
I said, hey, Mr. President, don't you maim for me!
(This fixation needs psychiatry)
You've got the whole world hating us
From sea to shining sea

The economy's in the toilet so what do you do?
You make Ritchie Rich richer while we get the screw
And banging them war drums won't drown out that tune
Your legacy's soon to be pissed away too

I said, hey, Mr. President, don't you kill for me!
(Don't ruin my country and say you did it for me)
I said, hey, Mr. President, don't you maim for me!
(After Iraq what will we see?)
Cause in your New World Order
They hate us from sea to sea

You say you're "sick and tired" but who gives a damn?
Our boys will soon be dying, just like down in Vietnam
And collateral damage will be hard to ignore
When it's a monument of corpses bigger than Hoover dam!

I said, hey, Mr. President, don't you kill for me!
(They're not toy soldiers, they have family)
I said, hey, Mr. President, don't you maim for me!
(Cruise missiles are WMD)
You've got the whole world hating us
Burning more flags you'll see

100,000 dead was your dad's legacy
How many more Osamas will come from your lunacy?
Sharon's "a man of peace"? I'm in "shock and awe"
The stem cells are all safe but the humans want mercy

I said, hey, Mr. President, don't you kill for me!
(Kill Osama not civilians for me)
I said, hey, Mr. President, don't you maim for me!
(Little children aren't able to flee)
Cause in your New World Order
They hate us from sea to sea.
