Anti-War In Iraq Music
March 31, 2003
Anti-War Songs With A Bite From The Compassionate Conservatives

As in the foreign policy that's biting us in our own ass.

Here are a few kind words that were sent to me by the

Compassionate Conservatives
.
(Lyrics)


Please don't be fooled by our name... we bear no resemblance to the frauds currently inhabiting the White House. Our mission is to uncover the deception, hypocrisy, and arrogance of the court-appointed Bush Administration through our music and wit. We release all songs in MP3 format for free download... no strings attached. We are not in this for the money...

1. Another War

Set to the tune of the Beatles' "Drive My Car", Bush and Cheney are overjoyed at the prospect of -- you guessed it -- another war. Featuring a special excerpt from Bush's March 19th speech introducing the Iraqi war.


Dubya wants another war
Dubya's just a corporate whore
Dubya wants another war
'cause Dubya's a Nazi

Ask Dick Cheney what's he going to do
He starts a-sneering, you know you're screwed
He's been known to keep a secret or two
And now he's keeping them all from you

Cheney wants another war
Halliburton's gonna score
Cheney wants another war
'cause Cheney's a Nazi

Jawohl Mein Fuehrer Ja!


2. Midnight Confessions (of Emperor G.W. Bush)

This is a remake of the Grass Roots song on the same name, circa 1968. Featured commentator is, of course, George W. Bush, who comes off sounding every bit the buffoon that he is.

3. In The Garden of Eden (war crimes/DC rally mix)

This is a remake of Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida", which we chose in light of Iraq's geographical location. We have added some commentary, including unintentional Bush irony from the State of the Union address, comments from Francis Boyle on how the Iraq war violates the Nuremberg Charter, and numerous commentators from the January 18th anti-war rally held in Washington DC.

Here's the Zinn/Fisk/Nader remix of the same "Garden of Eden" song.

"Stop the war!", the people say
Stop the war,
Stop the war this very day,
Stop the war
Stop your games of super power,
Stop the war this very hour.
For the children of Iraq,
Stop the terror in the dark.
Stop the science that's gone mad,
Stop the bombing of Baghdad.
Show the truth that you disguise,
We see through your managed lies.
Scummy howard, bush and blair,
Who for justice do not care.
This is one immoral war,
So for justice and for law.
Hear the planet's millions cry,
Stop before more millions die.
What price for saddam hussein ?
Wounded children, fear and pain.
More horrors in the middle east,
Instability released.
Stop the war and stop the fear,
Once more so the bastards hear.
One more heave and then belay,
"Stop the war" the people say.

Give me an S!
S!
Give me a C!
C!
Give me an A!
A!
Give me an M!
M!
What's that spell?
Scam!
What's that spell?
Scam!
What's that spell?
Scam!

Come on all of you dumbed down men,
that son of a Bush needs your help again.
He's got himself in a terrorist jam,
when daddy sent chemicals off to old Saddam.
So roll up your sleeves for vaccines in your arm,
they don't tell you that they're doin' you harm
And its one, two, three, what are we fighting for?
Most know it's the same old scam,
next stop is old Baghdad.
And it's five, six, seven, open up the pearly gates.
Well, we've got no mind to question why,
whoopee, we're all gonna die
Now prepare yourselves generals for the big blast,
India and Pakistan are heating up fast.
Why you should go out and kill Afghans is
cause the only good Taliban is one that's dead.
They say that global peace can only be won,
when they blast us all to kingdom come
And its one, two, three, what are we fighting for?
The clueless just don't give a damn,
where the hell is Pakistan?
And it's five, six, seven, open up the pearly gates
With Prosac minds we don't care to know why,
whoopee, we're all gonna die.
Now come on Wall Street don't be slow,
why man this is war so go, go, go.
There's plenty of big fortunes to be made,
by supplying the Chinese with tools of the trade.
Just hope and pray that if they start the bombing,
they'll drop them on Osama bin Laden
And its one, two, three, what are we fighting for?
Most know it's the same old scam,
Wag the dog at ol' Saddam.
And it's five, six, seven, open up the pearly gates.
Well, we've got no time to wonder why,
whoopee, we're all gonna die
So come on all you mothers throughout the land,
pack your boys off to old Baghdad.
Come on you fathers don't hesitate,
send your girls too before their wedding date.
Be the first ones on the block to have your kids come home in a box.
And its one, two, three, What are we fighting for?
The clueless just don't give a damn,
about the oil in Afghanistan.
And it's five, six, seven, open up the pearly gates.
Well, Rockefeller says the population's too high
and half of us need to die.
So come on all of you dumbed down men,
the son of a Bush needs your help again.
He's got us in a terrible jam,
ousting daddy's partner old Saddam.
So don't roll up your sleeves for any shots in your arm,
it's just smarter to stay on the farm.
That's all.

Another typical "Ignorant" and uninformed liberal. Wake up idiots, its not about oil, even a majority of the democrats agree it isn't, but instead of seeing the truth, you continue to spew stupidity....congrats!

Bush, Cheney, oil, blah-blah-blah...... Instead of continuing your hate, why not go look at the faces of those liberated in Afganistan and Iraq who are happy to be rid of the brutalities against them.

How about a rythme or lyric for that, poet?

Posted by: Whybother on April 7, 2003 08:55 AM

This war is about helping other people and if you want to be blind to the thanks of the people of Iraq and Afganistan, be my guest. Wallow in your ignorance if you must, but don't spread it please. There is enough stupidity in the world as it is.

"Whybother" has not even bothered to learn about the Gulf War VETERANS (THEY ARE NOT TROOPS) THAT ARE SICK, DYING AND SUFFERING FROM THE 1ST GULF WAR.

THAT IS DIS-RESPECTFUL - AND CERTAINLY NOT PATRIOTIC. WE BETTER NOT CATCH YOU "WHYBOTHER" MINDLESS SHEEP FOLLOWERS WITH FLAGS - SINCE YOU ARE TREASONISTS WHO BETRAY YOUR COUNTRY AND VETERANS...

THE REAL PATRIOTS ARE IN THE ANTI-WAR OR "PEACE MOVEMENT".

THE NEXT TIME YOU POST A MESSAGE, "WHY BOTHER", WHY DON'T YOU BOTHER TO GET AN EDUCATION --

FIND OUT AND STUDY WHAT THE GULF WAR VETERANS ARE SICK AND DYING FROM AND BEING LIED TO ABOUT FROM YOUR SO-CALLED "GOVERNMENT" AND BEING DENIED MEDICAL CARE AND HAVING THEIR BENEFITS CUT

AND THEN, WHY BOTHER

AND TELL YOUR WIMPY TREASONIST PRO-WAR PEOPLE AND

WRITE ARTICLES ABOUT IT.

SUPPORT OUR VETERANS -- WHAT, "WHYBOTHER", THE "WORD" VETERANS IS A SHAME FOR YOU TO USE?

IS THAT WHY YOU LIKE TO DISMISS THE GULF WAR VETERANS WHO ARE SICK AND DYING FROM GW 1 BY AVOIDING THE WORD "VETERANS" AND USING THE WORD "TROOPS" -- SO IT DOES NOT REMIND YOU OF THE SACRIFICE OUR VETERANS FROM THE 1ST GULF WAR HAVE MADE?

WHY BOTHER -- YOU BETRAY YOUR COUNTRY.

WE SUGGEST YOU WHY BOTHER YOURSELF INTO LEARNING SOMETHING ABOUT WHY THE ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT IS GROWING AND WHAT THEY REALLY ARE SAYING BEFORE YOU GO MIND-LESSLY ATTACKING PEACEFUL PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO HELP THE GULF WAR 1 VETERANS - WAY MORE THAN YOU DO - AND TRYING TO SAVE AMERICA.

www.GulfWarVets.com -- Read WHY these Vets are AGAINST THIS WAR.

The War Trilogy is at www.peacesong.com. You and anyone else can download the three MP3's(or RA) for absolutely nothing, save a few minutes....

Baghdad Road is about the aftermath of the Iraq War for a U.S. soldier. Enemy Me takes on the Patriot Act's effect on freedom of expression and civil liberties. Sudden Sound looks at 'precision' bombing.

Your help is essential. 'Mainstream' media won't touch. (And my legs are a lot hairier than the Dixie Chick's.)

Please listen...and pass the word...post a link...

By the way, great site, thanks! Be encouraged, you got it going on...

Here are the Lyrics to my Anti-War song I wrote

I Hate War

I hate war-I hate war
I hate war-I hate war
I hate war-I hate war
I hate war

I hate murder-I hate death I hate killing-with no one left
I hate voilence-I hate greed
I hate war

I hate stupid-stupid people
Stupid stupid-stupid people
Stupid people
That cause war

Tell you once-tell you twice
Hey I don't care-if it don't rhyme
I hate war
I hate war

And I want to kill-everyone that kills everyone
Everyone that kills everyone-everyone that kills everyone
But I don't want to kill cause
I hate war

"Instead of continuing your hate, why not go look at the faces of those liberated in Afganistan and Iraq who are happy to be rid of the brutalities against them."


I've seen the face of war. Not the face of liberation.
The face of war is bloodied and broken. The face of war is the face of the dead. Those faces are not thankful for our intrustion, let alone our "aid." How's that for liberation?

I'm a singer/songwriter from New Jersey and I'm proud to announce "Conspiracy of Silence" has been selected to be included on a CD COMPILATION of ANTI-BUSH, ANTI-WAR music to be released to college and public radio stations during late SUMMER 2004, titled: ELECTION DAY USA. It would be a great help to our cause if you could post a link on your website. Maybe, just maybe we can make the world a better place. I have posted a link to the website below.

Peace,

Listen to "Conspiracy of Silence" here:
http://www.garageband.com/song?|pe1|S8LTM0LdsaSnY1GyYGE

Conspiracy of Silence
Disturbing visions of flag-covered coffins each day United we stand while they're warring our future away The spin doctors dance while our young men continue to die All for the sake of the corporate American pie

It's a conspiracy of silence And it's breaking us down In a conspiracy of silence The truth wonít be found

The president seems to have dangerous thoughts in his head His war-minded handlers are pushing him over the edge Protecting the interests of all their industrial friends The sins of the father repeating all over again

It's a conspiracy of silence And it's holding us down In a conspiracy of silence The truth can't be found

Remind us again How September eleventh Will justify all of your Unjustifiable wars

It's time we demanded they answer the questions they've dodged And make them give back to us all of the freedoms they've robbed The seeds of big brother have started to take root and spread And if we don't rise up we'll find our democracy's dead

It's a conspiracy of silence And it's keeping us down In a conspiracy of silence The truth can't be found

It's a conspiracy of silence And it's tearing us down In a conspiracy of silenceÖ

Here's another song for you called Save Me by my band, Nomad Planets.

Another liar sets the stage
For accidents and early graves
Our enemy lives in a cave
On that we can rely

So Iím on a plane. Away from you.
They said Iíd get to kill a few
But they didnít ask my point of view
Cross my heart and hope to die

Save me, Iím just a baby
Hazy and unaware
Maybe weíre going crazy
Or maybe weíre already there

An actorís work is never done
From Sacramento to Washington
You donít have to be a rich manís son
To play a rich manís game

Where integrity is compromised
Each syllable is scrutinized
Who are we to criticize?
Who are we to blame?

Weíve been misled for years and years
By millionaires and puppeteers
They blow a whistle no one hears
It makes us think weíre free

So that we believe the government
Wonít abandon those they represent
I wonít stand by the president
Until he stands by me

Want to listen? Go here.

Thanks.
