From the recording Songs for Troubled Times


Just Like Tim McVeigh

You’ve got white skin
just like Tim McVeigh
we better put the needles in
before you yell bombs away

can’t judge a book by its cover
you got to open up and read what is inside
whether friend or foe or lover
no matter how much they may make you cry

when it first happened they wanted to blame
the event on those who were from the middle east
all I’ve ever known from there felt the same
they loved and cherished peace

innocent til proven guilty
isn’t that the way its supposed to be
makes things seem rather filthy
when race is evidence for what you believe

there was a man lets call him Adolph
seems he didn’t like the gypsies or the jew
above his head there was no halo
their populations he managed to reduce
