War By Other Means



War By Other Means
every voice you’ve silenced and every life you’ve taken
recollections from your distant past
the tortured and the dying from a legacy of hatred
are back to echo in your ears
screams you thought for sure wouldn’t last

because you can’t kill an idea, i will not be ruled…
because you can’t kill an idea, and we will not be ruled…

"disrupt misdirect isolate and nuetralize"
like the Trudells who burned alive in ’79
now those enemies of the hour are the focus of this moment
for as long as we are here every voice remains alive

because you can’t kill an idea, i will not be ruled…
because you can’t kill an idea, we will not be ruled by fear

i pledge no allegiance to the flag
of the undeniable mistakes of america
which to the plutocracy for which it stands
so many nations and their gods have become invisible
with liberty and justice reserved for a precious chosen few
let our allegiances lie with those betrayed by the facade
for the calm is an illusion…

"the struggle is not over…it assumes new forms"
for no matter what the face no matter what the name
it’s still…
war

the laws are silent in times of war
