People are divided 

Which way to turn 

Deceitful doctrine 

Engulfing the world 

No turning back 

Can anyone see 

Innocence dying 

Or is it just me 

Why the fighting 

What is it for 

They preach peace 

And offer war 

When will we say

Enough is enough 

Hypocrisy expose 

The coward cream puffs 

The whole things creepy 

The whole things queer 

Diverting attention 

Look over here

Dredging for dirt 

When the filth can be seen

Arming brother against brother

Is really obscene 

While the rulers are safe

In their stolen nest

Telling the world

It's all for the best

But who is really pulling the strings 

Who's the chess master

The champ in the ring 

Who could set all this out 

A crafty enemy 

Have no doubt 

Sorry if it sounds like a rave 

But nothing ventured 

Nothing gained.
