"In late 2002 I started participating regularly in the San Antonio Peace Coalition's attempts to stop the war in Iraq. My mom and I decided to do a radio program, which we did with the help of Trinity University and our friend Deck Yoes. I thought up the song on walk, and Susan Ives of the Peace Coalition put me in touch with guitarist/songwriter Maria Larson so I could actually record it." -Sheryl Zettner.
The Pied Piper of Crawford
Will lead our land to war.
The Pied Piper of Crawford,
Who's never fought before.

We're told it's time that we attack
The "evil" nation of Iraq,
We're all supposed to jump on board
While all our questions are ignored.

The Pied Piper of Crawford
May throw us all in jail
No justice from the Piper:
No counsel, trial, nor bail.

All damage is "collateral."
Our game plan unilateral.
We wave our flags, prepared to fight,
With no regard for wrong or right.

Chorus:
The Pied Piper of Crawford
Is luring us with lies
He'll make Hussein a martyr;
And a martyr never dies.

The propaganda sounds so pure.
We're going to make Iraq "secure"
With guns and bombs on foreign soil
And plots to plunder Arab oil.

Chorus:
The Pied Piper of Crawford
Has played on all our fears.
Let's all follow the piper
While freedom disappears.

We're told we need to use first strike
To take out leaders we don't like
So politicians wave their flags
Till kids come home in body bags

Chorus:
The Pied Piper of Crawford
Will lead our land to war.
The Pied Piper of Crawford,
Who's never fought before.
