Style Over Substance

As with 'Cretin', this is free to download. But there's no harm in giving us some money if you're feeling especially generous.


Not content with the mess you made
Or taking into account the price that was paid
You were mistaken to think that blood was currency

That wallet expands and retracts
But your public fail to face the facts
And it's adoption of this ideal that brings us to see

It's not about style over substance
It's the abandonment of logical thought
It's about prevention of violence
When thinking logically leads to war

Kill and be killed for trivial reasons
That's the true meaning of patriotism
You were wrong to let your beliefs be determined by geography

Men who think send others to do
