Painted Signs

They shoot at us with rubber bullets
cause they don't like the words painted on our signs,
"Stop Detonating Love Bombs
In the Middle East!".
But I suppose that will be all that's left
when everyone dies for this
enigmatic War for Peace.

within one's heartache

don't you hear?
I'm crying,
But they are silent,
They hold only my must
   Deepest fears.
I'm just getting started,
Now dying by a sickness,
They can no long
My heart becomes cold,
And I no longer want
    To bare.
Another day of heart ache and
Days seem to pass,
Yet still stuck in da,
Moments that never last.
I blame it on the devil's past,
An evil plans to kill me dis fast.
Hidden secrets Beneath pure darkness
If I could correct it i would....
Yet you can't take back the
Things you've done... only fix who
You can become.
It's up too you...

Edwin Starr asked ya what is it good for 
Big share holder bonuses 
And a  politicians ego
Don't fall for jingoistic rhetoric 
Wear the white poppy 
And tell the war mongers to go to heck

War In Iraq

All U.S. soldiers are putting their lives on the line in Iraq for our freedom. It's like a
modern-day version of World War II and the Gulf War. Despite the armed forces' efforts to
fighting for our freedom, they suddenly get killed by suicide bombs or wounded, thereby
being torn limb from limb. There's always a problem with the military soldiers getting
shot in the brain or wherever. George W. Bush, who was the President of the United States
of America at the time, was really wrong for sending the troops to Iraq, knowing that the
men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces would be injured or killed. But despite the war in
Iraq and our troops sacrificing their lives for our freedom and the capture of Suddam
Hussan, this war is still haunting all of us U.S. civilians. But then, when it came to
going against the Iraqis, it was worth it. I hope America doesn't go to war, again.
