few words of defense

Hitler, Stalinmen who need no introduction
King Leopold of Belgium, that’s right
Everyone thinks he’s so great
Well he owned The Congo

He tore it up too
He took the diamonds, he took the gold
He took the silver
Know what he left them with?Malaria

A President once said“
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”
Now it seems like we’re supposed to be afraid
It’s patriotic in fact and color coded

And what are we supposed to be afraid of?
Why, of being afraid
That’s what terror means, doesn’t it?
That’s what it used to mean
From “A Few Words in Defense of Our Country”
Written by Randy Newman
