Someone Got Murdered (2003)
(To the music of "Someone Got Murdered"
on the Clash's Sandinista album.)

Someone writes a press release
Tells another lie
Someone has a battleship
Prepares his men to die
But who will be in Baghdad
When bombs replace the weather?
Civilians being murdered
Goodbye they're gone forever.

Someone. Got Murdered.
Someone. Gone Forever.

Someone makes a killing
On the commodities exchange
Chicago's in the midwest
Safely out of range
But will they think of Baghdad
Where blood runs red not green
Civilians being murdered
For profit is obscene

In memory of Joe Strummer.
