From the writer:

"I wrote BushWhacked simply because it had to be written. I wrote, sang and performed all instruments for this track (for better or worse) because I knew exactly what I wanted to say. The American mainstream media is constipated and our Congress is hog-tied. Our American politicians seem fearful of retribution if they speak their minds and hearts (the Bush administration seems like an organized crime family). I feel that my words are an accurate depiction of the U.S. led "occupation" in Iraq. I used an estimate of 100,000 Iraqi solder and civilian deaths based upon various published reports. I believe the estimate is quite conservative. As we approach 3000 U.S. and Coalition deaths and perhaps 20,000 wounded, there should be a million protest songs and protestors rising up. Sadly, I see mostly lemmings."

BushWhacked

I served my time far away from the front lines
But I've seen them come and I've seen them go
Bullets fly when politicians lie and soldiers die - that's war
Their fathers and mothers wake up crying in the middle of the night
Their hearts jump at every knock upon the door
Young Americans bleeding and dying in the middle of this fight
Still trying to figure out what the hell they're really dying for

Bushwhacked and another soldier dies
They've been Bushwhacked
By a whitehouse war built on whitehouse lies
Bushwhacked
And by the time we realize we've all been Bushwhacked
Another roadside bomb, another soldier dies

If you close your eyes force yourself to look inside
Read between the whitehouse lies that we've all been fed
In the name of humanity they peddled our democracy
Claim they're trying to set Iraqis free
So far we've freed a hundred thousand dead
And their fathers and mothers wake up crying in the middle of the night
Their hearts jump with every knock upon the door
Soldiers and civilians bleeding and dying in the middle of this fight
Still trying to figure out what they're really dying for

They've been Bushwhacked and another soldier dies
They've been Bushwhacked
By a whitehouse war built on whitehouse lies
Bushwhacked
And by the time we realize we've all been Bushwhacked
Another roadside bomb, another soldier dies

Bushwhacked and another soldier dies
They've been Bushwhacked
By a whitehouse war built on whitehouse lies
Bushwhacked
And we're gonna lose a thousand more
Yeah we've been Bushwhacked
Maybe George should fight his own bullshit war
