Blackmail The Universe - text
It appears that Air Force One was shot down
Somewhere over the Middle East this morning
By a sleeper cell of rogue terrorists, firing a Stinger Missile
The Pilot and all passengers are unaccounted for
The President's whereabouts are presently unknown
And he is presumed missing
The Vice President, Secretary of State,
And principals of the military are assembling
Our nation stands at DEFCON 3
I “red, white and blew it”
Unleashed revenge, my body is detained
How could anybody do this?
Betrayal, I peel away the days
Medals are useless, Uncle Sam's forgotten me
I'm not important, no one will ever come
I'll never be found, God get me out of this hell
Cold wars are heating up again
The tensions mounting
People lift up your fists in revenge
Who will be the first to blink?
We can't go to war
Remember that “Vietnam thing”
Peace at any price
With a gun to your head, bang, bang
Weakness runs in your family
What runs in mine is death
Burn all your classified documents
And if cooler heads don't prevail
First strike from a political dead man
He understands only one language – action!
And he respects only one word – force!
No sign of them stopping, no time for back channel communiqués
We need all the help we can get, air strikes and invasions!
Retaliate, I say!
Awaken those sleeping giants in the dust of the ground
With their skin destroyed, unjust to innocence
Lawful possessor of the world's last 24 hours
And in hatred you see men as they really are
If chosen over heaven, Earth will have been for them
All along, only another region of hell
