Kind of self explanatory, this song was inspired by the massive anti-war protests and world-wide opposition to the war on Iraq, with the major theme of "Not in our Name". It exposes the real "Axis of evil - Tony Blair and George Bush.
It's a summer's day followed by a winter storm
They're growing fields of golden arches –
While the redwoods fall to the ground
And pretty soon the melted Arctic
will be carved into another route for trade
The Indigenous are watching their home wash away
While the concrete dams are saved

So many people hungry -even though there's enough to eat
'Cause every living thing they get their hands on they turn into another commodity
Well the gap between the rich and the poor
Is now the only thing still growing consistently
But what good are mountains of money
When there's nowhere left to breathe..

Oh no
You don't do this in our name
You don't do this in our name
Not in our name

The mightiest of the mighty
Are bombing the ones who don't stand a chance
They make them run across landmine for a sandwich in the sand
To find the real axis of evil, you don't have to look to hard
Try Downing Street and Washington DC and take a look in our own backyard..

Oh no
You don't do this in our name
You don't do this in our name
Not in our name

The fault lines are growing and the cracks reveal the truth
We never asked for a world like this and we've had enough of you
No more in our name will you continue to inflict your misery
We've had enough of all the pain the world has seen..


Oh no!
You don't do this in our name
You don't do this in our name
Not in our name
NOT IN OUR NAME!!
