Sue Jeffers Welcome Home
The president looked in the camera today
And these were the words that he said:
"We have sources of intelligence"
but it's clear that they're not in his head.
And he said that he's praying for guidance
to help him to do what is right
Well he may be hearing voices but I doubt that it is God
that keeps on a telling him: 'Fight, George, fight'

We've been told we should watch what we do and we say
Only traitors would dare to dissent,
but I've no plans to shut up or join the refrain
for war without end amen, amen..

At breakfast he prayed for forgiveness and strength,
but offered no plans to repent
And by lunch he was planning destruction again
and how many more troops will be sent..

But God knows that he killed his own people
and his plans are a threat to world peace
He has weapons that cause mass destruction
and that stockpile he plans to increase..

We've been told we should watch what we do and we say
Only traitors would dare to dissent,
but I've no plans to shut up or join the refrain
for war without end amen, amen..

The Pentagon outlined their new battle plan
to lob 400 missiles a day
to create the effect that Hiroshima had
and leave no place in Baghdad that's safe..
To hell with Geneva conventions
that prohibit such criminal schemes
Well it's terror when someone else sets off a bomb,
but destroying whole cities is just foreign policy..

We've been told we should watch what we do and we say
Only traitors would dare to dissent,
but I've no plans to shut up or join the refrain
for war without end amen, amen..

And the world it is growing more tired each day
with this incessant lusting for war
and the reasons that just keep on changing
to explain what the fighting is for.
While the public relations firms work overtime
to sell us this grand killing spree
make no mistake when it's all said and done
they will have set that Iraqi oil free..

We've been told we should watch what we do and we say
Only traitors would dare to dissent,
but I've no plans to shut up or join the refrain
for A War Without End – Amen, Amen..
