Lyrics/Notes

 After years of a North American society subject to the whims of hard right wing fantasies, and as the Bush era in the U.S. is drawing to an end, this song is my attempt at closure and my own last judgment on what has happened. Although not about any one Neocon in particular, the narrator  of the song is a compilation of people like Cheney, Armitage, Feith and Wolfowitz.

I think that more than anything else, this is a song about the denial of reality.

What’s Done is Done ( New Reality)

You can’t believe your lying eyes
You can’t read the writing in the sky
Clouds have gathered all around
As daylight fades
The wind is slowly rising in the east
You have become the beast we feed

By the guiding flame
With careful aim
We shot an arrow straight into the sun
If we go all in
We can twist and spin
There’s no time for regret
What’s done is done

So much more than meets the eye
In the fog of war, the con is where the truth lies
We know all you need to know
We call the shots as we give and go
We fix the game, we run the show
This is a new reality

By a blood red line
And a sacred sign
We fired a bullet straight into the sun
If we lose the race
We can still win the chase
There’s no room for regret
What’s done is done

There are no words my angel
For these things you cannot see
No tears to cry my lover
For what will never be
I see no pain or consequence
Or any reason to return
I’ll take the weight of what I’ve done
And all the glory I have earned
(The lessons we have learned)
(The bridges we have burned)
And all the glory I have earned

All my fine words have disappeared
Stop staring at me – nothing happened here
I can will this all away
If I threaten, if I pray
For another chance, a brand new day
I will write the end of history

By the guiding wire
Through the endless fire
We launched a rocket straight into the sun
If we lose the game
There’s no one to blame
There’s no reason to regret
What’s done is done

What’s done is done
What’s done is done
