Default Land of Confusion by Genesis.....

Lyrics here...


I must have dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
But I can hear the marching feet
They're moving into the street

Now, did you read the news today?
They say the danger has gone away
But I can see the fire's still alight
They're burning into the night

There's too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there's not much love to go around
Can't you see this is a land of confusion?

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in

Oh, superman, where are you now?
When everything's gone wrong somehow?
The men of steel, these men of power
Are losing control by the hour

This is the time, this is the place
So we look for the future
But there's not much love to go around
Tell me why this is a land of confusion

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in

I remember long ago
When the sun was shining
And all the stars were bright all through the night
In the wake of this madness, as I held you tight
So long ago

I won't be coming home tonight
My generation will put it right
We're not just making promises
That we know we'll never keep

There's too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there's not much love to go round
Can't you see this is a land of confusion?

Now, this is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for

This is the world we live in
And these are the names we're given
Stand up and let's start showing
Just where our lives are going to
__________________________________________________ _

It just so feel like right now. They world we live in, the things that we take for granted. We are giving so much power to stupid people and we dont do nothing about it (including myself). We are been robbed blind of everything and I really hate this feeling. Im confused. I want to fight and make this life of mine worth something. Guys you are my family and Im just venting out. This is the only way I can do this. I feel I need direction. WE HAVE SO MUCH POWER. SO MUCH POWER. Us against them.

Disturbed did a cover of this and it sounds great, they have much more emotion and angst in their version.

I think any band that sings those lyrics is going to be anti-government in general. It's a revolt against the system.

Skull, I don't doubt you that they are anti-military as many moron celebrities are, but do you have any links or articles about what they have done or said that is anti-military?
