War that no one won, won, won, won.
War that no one won, won, won, won.
They broke into Fort Knox and stole the time of the shinning dream of a nation,
War that no one won, won, won, won.
Leaving behind the unmistakable black residue of dripping oil.
War that no one won, won, won, won.
Our pain bodies everywhere.
Everywhere where we don't stare.
Spare us all your dubious care.
Pretending that you're being fair.
Pretending that we see does not give us sight.
Pretending that we live does not make us alive.
War that no one won!

    They broke into Fort Knox and stole the time of the shinning dream of a nation...Meaning that they stole there money and freedom?

    Leaving behind the unmistakable black residue of dripping oil

    Meanin that they came and stole there money and left them with nothing but the oil from the tanks that came and stole...?

    Our pain bodies everywhere.
    Everywhere where we don't stare.
    Spare us all your dubious care.
    Pretending that you're being fair.

    Okay..this one i think means

    -That the evidence of the wrong that has been done lies everywere
    but we are blinded from it because the goverments lies forcing us
    to believe that all that is able to do to help them is being done so nobody does anything..

    Pretending that we see does not give us sight.
    Pretending that we live does not make us alive.

    - im not realy sure about this one but here it goes

    sight one: it means just becuase we have been told what has hapened
    does not mean we was any insite onto what hapene because the goverment have twisted the story...I dont know lol?

    Alive one: im REALY not sure about this sorry :(

    anyway dont be to quick to judge if i get this wrong :P

    Serj forever...

    "They broke into Fort Knox and stole the time of the shinning dream of a nation"
    -That would be money
    "Leaving behind the unmistakable black residue of dripping oil"

    either:
    -tanks
    or
    -war oil from iraq

    Everywhere where we don't stare.
    Spare us all your dubious care.
    Pretending that you're being fair.

    We are blind, and the govenment continues to lies, pretending that their efforts are just.

    Pretending that we see does not give us sight.
    Pretending that we live does not make us alive.

    we are blind, not seeing that we arent free.
