If it's not…
by: trista groulx

If it's not one looming threat it's another
Back in the day it was "communists"
Today we have "terrorists"
If it's not one invisible threat it's another
Trying to take our way of life away
So we must take their lives first

If it's not one looming threat it's another
So we wage wars against these people
An invisible enemy that must be stopped
If it's not one invisible threat it's another
A threat that may be only half real
An enemy with the face of a child

If it's not one looming threat it's another
Who's the real threat?
Who's the real enemy?
If it's not invisible threat it's another
Weapons of mass destruction
About to annihilate the world

If it's not one looming threat it's another
Who will destroy earth first
The invisible enemy or the propaganda
If it's not one invisible threat it's another
Communists, terrorists, the same?
Just to keep you on your toes?

If it's not one looming threat it's another
Keeping you safely grounded in your home
Watching the body count from your couch
If it's not one invisible threat it's the next
Not seeing the real faces of the damned
People just like you dying for no reason
