Revolutionary QOTD: May 10, 2006

They sell us the president the same way
They sell us our clothes and our cars
They sell us every thing from youth to religion
The same time they sell us our wars
I want to know who the men in the shadows are
I want to hear somebody asking them why
They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are
But they're never the ones to fight or to die
And there are lives in the balance
There are people under fire
There are children at the cannons
And there is blood on the wire
~Jackson Browne - Lives in the Balance, Acoustic Solo, Vol. I
From C&L. There's a link to the full lyrics there and to the music video of Jackson Browne's new anti-war song. Worth watching, especially if you're a Jackson Browne fan.
