We all like to hear scary stories.
I’ll tell you one that will thrill you.
If they thought it was in their interests,
Our government thugs would kill you.
So what if there are no good answers
To questions like “when?” and “how?”
They know to the voice of “authority”
Most people will meekly bow.
Though the parts of the cover-up story
Can’t be crafted to fall into place,
Our press will still spare no effort
To sell us the government’s case.
When all we can hear is one version,
The government truth and no more,
Don’t you wonder about all those reporters?
Just who are they working for?
What happened to equal protection?
Who protects us from government crimes
When we can’t depend on our scholars
Or The News or The Post or The Times?
The Soviet state has now fallen,
With its empire constructed on fear.
But if we don’t do something to stop it
We’re well on our way to that here.
