The Fuse

You give out the orders and freedom's on the march

and how do we stop it once this killing starts?

You loosed the dogs of war, now listen to them bark!

And can you hear the children cry?

And do you care how many die?

This world could blow apart any day and break in two

and what are you trying to do -- light the fuse?

Blessed are the peacemakers and where are they now?

I don't think I see any in your tight little crowd.

You've got your smoking guns, you've got your mushroom clouds

and Wall Street investments doing well.

You've always got more bullets to sell.

This world could blow apart...

You can make the soldiers follow your commands

and do your unfinished business out in the desert sands.

You won't let that oil slip out of your hands.

And did you think that we'd forget

all of these lies that you said

while you're turning the world bloody red

and keeping us busy counting the dead?

This world could blow apart...
