Phil Ochs – The War Is Over

Where are the new songwriters who are writing about the topics of today. Aren’t there enough things worthy of criticism?

Phil said it as it was.

As I watched America decaying into rabid packs of vigilante fascists. When Phil spoke of flag waving and treason he was talking about the people rising up against the government to stop an unjust war. He wasn’t referring to the President rousing a fascist mob in order to overturn a democratic election.

As the racist thugs and Neo-Nazis marched on the Capitol the President urged them into a frenzy. The next day he stabbed them in the back and disowned them.

Ever been conned?

As they rot in jail perhaps he will join them?

Unfortunately this war isn’t over. The battle for America has barely begun.

So do your duty, boys, and join with pride
Serve your country in her suicide
Find the flags so you can wave goodbye
But just before the end even treason might be worth a try
This country is to young to die

I'd like to hear from you...
