Partially based on the riff of Banned from the Roxy by CRASS.
It's bigger than a war that's to say the least
It's traverses over borders through lines of thick police
It's bigger than the oil it's a military dream
It's politicians propping up another sick regime
Now the people are against it and they show it in streets
They are met with clouds of tear gas and fake Osama tapes
And the bigger that they grow the harder it will get
As their pockets fill up further with every terror threat
And still we lie down on our stomachs playing into the charade
Lifting glasses in a toast to every bombing raid
It's bigger than a war
It's bigger than a war

It's bigger than a war it's an economic game
A battle for the power, wealth and the atomic gain
It's a private profit mission for the elite few
It's clearer than their lies so we can see right through
In turn we riot in the streets and shut the city down
When they meet inside the fortress walls we tear them to the ground
Police bring the cannons out to keep the war going
Throwing cuffs onto the people with the prisons over flowing
The poor are housed in ghettos so they cannot stand a chance
Your vote doesn't count unless you buy it in advance
It's bigger than a war
It's bigger than a war

It's bigger than a war by a striking height
You can smell it in the air in the dead of night
It's coming through the screen of the TV news
When they fill your head with lies try to change your views
The same corporations that make the weaponry
Are telling you what matters and what you need to believe
While they profit from the deaths of the young lying dead
Sticking money in the pockets of some lying fed
So the starving and displaced can rot away
Another child's mother was shot today
It's bigger than a war
It's bigger than a war

It's bigger than a war it's the whole damn plan
Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia, Iraq, Afghanistan
Let the truth be told they ain't in it for the people
It's a matter of protection for the pocket or the steeple
Don't be fooled by their words or their remedies
Send your kids to die in battle while they train their enemies
Open markets, open fire it's the same damn thing
Forcing poverty upon us in the interest of the King
Let it be known forever this world is free
Stand up and fight back at those who take that right away
It's bigger than a war
It's bigger than a war

It's bigger than a war it's the day to day
Capitalism's price to pay
It's a system based on murder and the packaging of fear
The swallowing of lies and the cranking of the gears

They need us - We don't need them
They need us - We don't need them
They need us - We don't need them
They need us - We don't need them

They would have us work in the prison yard
Train one of us to be the prison guard
And we'd fight amongst each other as we grow paranoid
With the heroin and television there to fill the void
But freedom lives forever and our aim is true
The answer lives inside of you
It's bigger than a war
It's bigger than a war
It's bigger than a war
It's bigger than a war.
