Beasties Post Anti-War Song!

I was wondering who was going to be the first popular musical act to write a song taking a stand against the war. Turns out it's one of my favorites!

Thanks guys! I love you for this.

In A World Gone Mad

Now we all have to start calling radio stations to demand
request that they play this song!

Check out the lyrics!


Mirrors, smokescreens and lies
Itís not the politicians but their actions I despise
You and Saddam should kick it like back in the day
With the cocaine and Courvoisier
But you build more bombs as you get more bold
As your mid-life crisis war unfolds
All you want to do is take control
Now put that axis of evil bullshit on hold
Citizen rule number 2080
Politicians are shady
So people watch your back 'cause I think they smoke crack
I donít doubt it look at how they act...

Itís time to lead the way and de-escalate
Lose the weapons of mass destruction and the hate
Say ooh ah whatís the White House doiní?
Oh no! Say, what in tarnation have they got brewing??!!!!???!!
Well Iím not pro Bush and Iím not pro Saddam
We need these fools to remain calm
George Bush youíre looking like Zoolander
Trying to play tough for the camera
What am I on crazy pills? Weíve got to stop it
Get your hand out my grandmaís pocket
We need health care more than going to war
You think itís democracy theyíre fighting for?

Here is the full text of the lyrics at:

In a World Gone Mad

In a world gone mad itís hard to think right
So much violence hate and spite
Murder going on all day and night
Due time we fight the non-violent fight

Mirrors, smokescreens and lies
Itís not the politicians but their actions I despise
You and Saddam should kick it like back in the day
With the cocaine and Courvoisier
But you build more bombs as you get more bold
As your mid-life crisis war unfolds
All you want to do is take control
Now put that axis of evil bullshit on hold
Citizen rule number 2080
Politicians are shady
So people watch your back 'cause I think they smoke crack
I donít doubt it look at how they act

In a world gone mad itís hard to think right
So much violence hate and spite
Murder going on all day and night
Due time we fight the non-violent fight

First the ĎWar On Terrorí now war on Iraq
Weíre reaching a point where we canít turn back
Letís lose the guns and letís lose the bombs
And stop the corporate contributions that their built upon
Well Iíll be sleeping on your speeches Ďtil I start to snore
ĎCause I wonít carry guns for an oil war
As-Salamu alaikum, wa alaikum assalam
Peace to the Middle East peace to Islam
Now donít get us wrong Ďcause we love America
But thatís no reason to get hysterica
Theyíre layiní on the syrup thick
We ainít waffles we ainít haviní it

In a world gone mad itís hard to think right
So much violence hate and spite
Murder going on all day and night
Due time we fight the non-violent fight

Now how many people must get killed?
For oil families pockets to get filled?
How many oil families get killed?
Not a damn one so whatís the deal?

Itís time to lead the way and de-escalate
Lose the weapons of mass destruction and the hate
Say ooh ah whatís the White House doiní?
Oh no! Say, what in tarnation have they got brewing??!!!!???!!
Well Iím not pro Bush and Iím not pro Saddam
We need these fools to remain calm
George Bush youíre looking like Zoolander
Trying to play tough for the camera
What am I on crazy pills? Weíve got to stop it
Get your hand out my grandmaís pocket
We need health care more than going to war
You think itís democracy theyíre fighting for?

In a world gone mad itís hard to think right
So much violence hate and spite
Murder going on all day and night
Due time we fight the non-violent fight

Every generation derserves their war, and this is ours. The only reason you are able to have this site and these lyrics posted is because of men like The US Marines and and the others in the American Armed Forces. If it weren't for them doing exactly what they are doing right now, who knows what language you'd be speaking right now. God Bless America, God Bless George Walker Bush, and God Bless our Soldiers. Dixie Chicks or should I say the Chick with dicks - can burn in hell as well as any other celebrity who holds their bullshit anti war views, and so can the rest of you tree huggin hippie cocksuckers. I may not like what you have to say, but I will defend to my death your right to say it, and I will respect your opinion, but bashing the American Leader and speakin as if everything you say is fact...I will not respect that, because it is NOT fact.
