"The Protest Song"

"The Protest Song"
Jacob Fitzlaff
9/4/2006

I see us marching everyday,
In the face of every man.
Can't believe this bullshit war,
For the lives of Afghanistan.

Yeah it's time to raise a finger.
Yeah it's time to raise a fist.
Shout it loud, Shout it clear.
This war is fucking shit!

Stop the marching through the desert.
Stop the bombings in the sand.
It's time to start the protest,
That will burn right through their plans.

End the senseless murder,
Please stop throwing lives away.
We are the guns of youth,
And it's time we had our say.

Bury the weapons 'neath the sand.
Walk away and don't look back.
Stop blowing off the heads,
Of the people of Iraq.

And Depleted Uranium,
Is the next Agent Orange.
How do the Afghanis' feel?
When their misfigured kids are born?

Yeah it's time to raise a finger.
Yeah it's time to raise a fist.
Shout it loud, Shout it clear.
This war is fucking shit!

Very well put together. That really touched a nerve with you. Are you going to do music for it?

Haha

other than the fact i'm not going to comment on the actual... meaning to the song.

I'll just say this has punk written ALL... .. ALLL over it hah. I wrote oh.. nearly 100 punk songs in my day, and a good portion of them sounded a little something like that. Angry, young, angst. Its all there.
