War On Dissent

Well, excuse me, Sir, it seems there's an error.
It says here you're fighting a war against terror.
Major Smith says, and I think he repeated,
that one day you'll have this terror defeated.
But I don't believe that it's terror you meant.
It looks like you're fighting a war on dissent.

You state that your aim is Full-Spectrum-Dominance,
Global Supremacy, U.S.A. prominance.
You're killing for peace and imposing democracy,
imprisoning freedom, that's blatent hypocrisy.

It's blindingly clear, as we huddle in fear,
whether we protest or whether we cower,
we're crushed by the heel of American Power.
