escalation bluez

they kill a few of our men so we
kill a few more of theirs
can we tell which side is winning by
looking at the dead people's stare
and can we still close our eyes and justify
when we keep on fighting the same damn fights
and just training more people to die

chorus:
we say that all people are equal
everyone's entitled to be free
every night on the news what i here is
we're shackled by our hate and ruled by our fears

they build a few more bombs
so we add a few to our pile
our bombs will safeguard our freedoms
the president says with a smile
but with each new advancement in technology
we get further away from real world peace
and we're weakening our security
chorus:

you can say it's alright to kill russians
or you're better dead than red
communists are godless monsters
at least that's what reagan said
and it's easier to hate a faceless group
and say we're not the same
but our bones are all going to look the same
if we bleach them out in a nuclear rain

chorus:
we say that all people are equal
everyone's entitled to be free
every night on the news what i here is
you can go ahead and think what you want
as long as you agree with me
