Living With War

Neil Young has a new album coming out next week titled Living with War. This a classic anti-war protest album. One song in particular is drawing a lot of attention, “Let’s Impeach the President”. The Faux News guys are all over this one proclaiming how can anyone dare to criticize King George? Here are the lyrics

Let’s impeach the president for lying
And leading our country into war
Abusing all the power that we gave him
And shipping all our money out the door

He’s the man who hired all the criminals
The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors
And bend the facts to fit with their new stories
Of why we have to send our men to war

Let’s impeach the president for spying
On citizens inside their own homes
Breaking every law in the country
By tapping our computers and telephones

What if Al Qaeda blew up the levees
Would New Orleans have been safer that way
Sheltered by our government’s protection
Or was someone just not home that day?

Let’s impeach the president
For hijacking our religion and using it to get elected
Dividing our country into colors
And still leaving black people neglected

Thank god he’s cracking down on steroids
Since he sold his old baseball team
There’s lot of people looking at big trouble
But of course the president is clean

Thank God

Living with War
I’ll definitely be getting this one when it comes out. Another really good anti-war album to check out if you haven’t already heard it is Steve Earle’s “The Revolution Starts… Now” which he released in 2004. I’ve long been a fan of both Steve and Neil. It would interesting to hear a collaboration between the two of them. Go give both of these records a listen and then call you congressional representatives and urge them to move for the impeachment of this criminal in the white house.
