God save us once again From the ruthless engines of evil men I don't live in London I can't see the queen Doing Lady Macbeth to keep her hands clean I'm not a reptile with an uncle named Bob But I know 9/11 was an inside job I know 9/11 was an inside job You can't find your way if you don't have light Every ship of state sails on an ocean of night Every government has a dark underside And the men at the top came along for the ride Back in the back far out of view Is where they make the plans for what they do It's a hard hard way on a hard hard line Yeah you better get yours cause I got mine America's heart is growing cold Millions in prison no respect for the old There are no weapons of mass destruction Except in the white house where're they're under construction God spare us all this time again From the ruthless engines of evil men You look at the details the picture is clear Want to increase the power, so they increase the fear Well I'm not a reptile with an uncle named Bob But I know 9/11 was an inside job Yeah I know 9/11 was an inside job Yes 9/11 was a Reichstag fire It's new and improved from the born again liar Every time you look something new disappears If you're lookin' for the truth well you can't look here When God comes to wake you there's a gentle touch Then he shakes you harder if harder he must If you don't wake up then Katie bar the door 'Cause this time God has got a two by four You're stoned and you're drunk, overweight and vain Your materialism has made you insane You see Al Qaeda everywhere but you don't see That the orders come from London and Washington D.C. God spare us all this time again From the ruthless engines of evil men I don't live in London I can't see the queen Doing Lady Macbeth to keep her hands clean And I'm not a lizard with an uncle named Bob But I know 9/11 was an inside job I know 9/11 was an inside job...

Now, let me see if I have got this right? Some stone age Arabs hi-jacked Four commercial flights Then flew them all at high speed Into targets on the ground And none of them were stopped 'cause, uh... no one was around? There were lap dancers in Florida Passports in New York Where nothing else survived... Is this some kind of joke? Two enormous buildings Melt to nothing on the ground Like timed demolition But no evidence was found No evidence was found 'cause they carted it away They quickly melted it all down And shipped it to Bombay The president read nursery rhymes To a peer group in the south Banal cloaking lunacy Kept pouring from his mouth While the two towers burned While the Pentagon trembled While the nation stood in shock The president dissembled Let me see if I got this right? Seven of the hijackers Weren't even on the flights No jet fighters scrambled 'though they were supposed to be Like they did for that golfers plane La-de-da-de-de The president said he saw a plane Crashing on TV But according to the timeline There's no possibility The medias in lockstep Ballroom waltzing through the lies And nobody knows anything They just let it slide Have I got it right that Afterwards he ran and hid And through his life before He failed at everything he did He walked away from his cushy post At the Texas National Guard Whilst evading Vietnam And snorting on the job They made him Texas governor Where he accomplished dick And then he fronted for the coup oh yeah they're plenty slick After purging out the voter roles they went to the supreme Merrily, merrily oh this is quite obscene And then the twin towers burned And then the jackboots started pounding To the unfinished symphony Of fascism resounding Something stinks in Denmark Or more likely in D.C. Manipulated by alerts That never came to be They marched into Afghanistan Now the opium can flow Who's the mind behind it all You think you'll ever know? Then they marched into Iraq 'cause of some immediate threat And what about those WMDs? Nah, they ain't found them yet Bush marched out with his crotch stuffed To proclaim the victory Soldiers die now every day So you can drive an SUV He fell of the Segway Like a drunken vaudeville clown And then he picked your pocket Whilst on his way down Then he took your money And he gave it to the rich He drove the country off the road Right into a ditch The polls are getting bad And the country is confused People now are thinking That maybe they got used But when power is an absolute And keeping it is too There really is no limit To what these men might do And the twin towers burned And nothing has been learned And the cloak of darkness fell Over the bodies in the well

Oh Kenny Boy The banks, the banks are calling From coast to coast and even overseas The money's gone except for what you pocketed Oh Kenny Boy, Oh Kenny Boy You're such a sleaze But call me back When George was my good buddy When we brought California to her knees Those days are gone and shrub boy doesn't know you Oh Kenny Boy Oh Kenny Boy You're on your own Oh Kenny Boy There is no prosecution For friends of George who should be friends of Bill The countries swirling down the drowning toilet It's you, it's you, have put here where she is And you don't care what happens to your country Indeed you are a worthless piece of shit There comes a day for you and Dick and George To burn in hell and it is not so far away

Something good is coming soon Something good is coming soon It's filling up the emptiness Putting on its party dress The world is in its Sunday best Cause everybody knows Something good is coming soon It may be for everyone It may just be for me Might make us all so happy But we'll just have to wait and see Something good is coming soon I just know that it's Something more Than i ever had before Maybe like love it will unfold And hold us close against the cold Something good is coming soon Could be it's a state of mind Or Something that got left behind Could be our innocence returned Or that one thing I never learned Something good is coming soon Whatever it is going to be Will be dressed in music that we can see Will send us dancing out the door To someplace we've never been before Something good is coming soon My heart is softer than it was I feel the light surrounding us I see it forming in the air It's coming down to meet us here Something good is coming soon Something good is coming soon Something good is coming soon

about

Visible: my girlfriend said to me;

"You know, that's not a very commercial title for an album"

and I said;

"It's not about the money, not that anyone seems to want to give me any. Somebody has to say something EVEN IF- very few people hear it..."
