about

This is a demo Dan did in July 2016. All instruments/lyrics/recording are by Dan...but we hope to do a full band version one day. It is now a race between Blair being tried for war crimes and us getting to a studio...which one is more likely to happen first?

lyrics

Tony Blair Is A Fucking War Criminal

The murderer speaks with a crack in his voice
Crocodile tears wet his eyes
In one breath he asks for forgiveness from us
At the same time he doesn’t apologise

Admits if he could do things over again
He’d change not a single damn thing
Acknowledges all of the laws contravened
But I guess that these laws don’t apply to him

It really could not have been stated more plainly
He lied and he led us to war
Sent parents’ sweet children to march to their death
Fabricated what they were fighting for

Where is the justice
We were always taught there was?
The bad guys get their just deserts
The good guys will avenge the hurt
How can we trust this
Pseudo democracy?
When no matter what crimes they commit
Our leaders get away with it?


An intel invention supports his intention
To show a dictator the door
But change of regime is an act of aggression
In violation of international law





A criminal court and a trial for war crimes
Should be this man’s sole legacy
But after this few hours of public abasement
He quietly disappeared from TV

Back to his lucrative speaking engagements
Back to his life of luxury
While the rest of us suffer his bloody consequences
He sleeps like a fucking baby

Where is the justice
We were always taught there was?
The bad guys get their just deserts
The good guys will avenge the hurt
How can we trust this
Pseudo democracy?
When no matter what crimes they commit
Our leaders get away with it?

Tony Blair is a fucking war criminal
