Anti-Flag – The Panama Deception lyrics

Their 2+2 does not equal 4
Their 2+2 equals whatver, they want us to die for

About face! - snap to attention
Form your own conclusions to the things you see
About face! - sometimes the explanations
Don't add - up to the facts

Time and again they manufacture a cause
And rally the public around it, check out the movie "wag the dog"
Killing - to further the interest of private corporations
Killing - to control global economic situations
Killing - for personal gain (i. E. Bush in Panama)
Learn the fuckin' truth you won't be so quick to sign on!

Our lives reflect tv sitcoms and tragedies
Like a bad joke, I ask, "how many of you don't see...? And just how
How many of you swallow the lies...?
How many of you do not realize...? "

Gung ho and true - to the stars and stripes
They fuckin' brainwashed you, to do their bidding...
And like a flock of sheep - with wool over your eyes
You never stop to question - you just fall into line

The media's a business, that provides entertainment
Heir bottom line: money, and stories that will make it...
So they run with stories, that promotes the lies
To keep the ratings coming, wealth from promoting world strife

Life must be so easy, when you don't have to think
Black and white like printing, from the newspaper's ink
I wish I had the chance, to reveal the lies
But you're so fucking brainwashed, would it even help to try...
To get throught... To you!?!?

To get through, through, through, through, through, through...
To get through to you!
