All Those People
(David & Jenny Heitler-Klevans)


[2004]
Lyrics & Music by David Heitler-Klevans

Political/topical song parody, about how the USA has been "blinded by the right"-wing policies of George W. Bush and his administration..
Blinded by the Right
Wrapped up in the flag
And sending bombers in the night
And sending bombers in the night
And sending bombers in the night
And sending bombers in the night

You think we won't trouble you
I hate to burst your bubble,
You won't be safe in your own home.
'Cuz Ashcroft thinks we've gone soft
He holds his righteous blade aloft
and cuts our rights down to the bone.

Big shot, chicken hawks
Don't you know that they're all talk
when it comes to who's gonna die?
And this AWOL action-doll
has the nerve to flash us all
his “what , me worry?” Alfred E. smile.

We were blinded by the Right
Wrapped up in the flag
And sending bombers in the night
And sending bombers in the night

The 11th of September
is a day we'll all remember
but what are the lessons we've learned?
Used as an excuse
to dole out some more abuse
and see other innocents burned..

The world was growing fonder
but Bush managed to squander
all the good will which came from that day.
And now our true flag is unfurled
We're back to play cops of the world
We'll kill whoever gets in our way.

Blinded by the Right
Wrapped up in the flag
And sending bombers in the night
And sending bombers in the night

Blinded by the Right
Do we really believe that might makes right
And that peace will come, the more we fight?

Halliburton draws the curtain
Covers up what is for certain
(a) conflict of interest crime.
And Bush wants billions more
He says it's for his little war
He gives his buddies our last dime..

Lies, lies, big surprise
Did you really trust those guys?
They're the lowest of the low.
George, Dick, Paul & Don
They should follow old Saddam
It's time for them all to go!

Blinded by the Right
Wrapped up in the flag
And sending bombers in the night
And sending bombers in the night

Blinded by the Right -
Mama always told me not to sacrifice our sons to make the SUV's run
But mama, that's where the money is -

Face the facts, we've been lax
while W gave back our tax
to the ones who need it least.
It makes you wanna holler
when your piece of pie grows smaller
while the rich are sitting down to their feast.

And now that it's election time
the Democrats begin to whine
about all that Bush has done wrong.
But they voted for war in Iraq
and caved in on the Patriot Act
they danced to every right-wing song.

Blinded by the Right
Wrapped up in the flag
And sending bombers in the night
[x2]

So, now it's time to wake up
Don't let the Bush team break up
all that we've worked for, for all these years.
Don't just sit around hoping
and don't just lie there moping
It'll take more than your prayers and tears.

They'll try to take you for a spin
They'll tell you that we cannot win
but don't you believe those lies.
Let's get out of Iraq, and
send George W packin'
It's time for us to organize!

No more blinded by the Right
We'll uncover all their lies
and expose them to the light
[repeat]

No more blinded by the Right -
We've been down, but we can make it through the night
if we don't give up
don't give up the fight!

No more blinded (Blinded by the Right)
[repeat and fade]
