Poison Idea – Star of Baghdad

by | Mar 14, 2024



Shine on, shine on
Bright star in the night
And drown out the cries
With your divine light

Sleep without care
And dream sweet dreams
While rockets red glare
And the innocent scream

Blood rains from the sky
The sea is on fire
Burn all the bridges
Over poison water

And justifiably kill
All those who sin
But the ratings get higher
Showing dead children

Shrapnel keychain
Desert Storm shit
Now on sale in department stores
Package pain
But who got hurt?
Marketing the mother of all war
