2020 Lyrics

It's not as if you didn't get the warning
You got transcripts and recordings
History has a way of signing us up in the morning
But you're a late starter make it easy to ignore it
Later not recall it
You had unfettered access to the facts
But the fact is your back is turned to the atlas
Nothing like jumping in the crash test
To help you make your mind up
Unknowingly the young sign up
The enemy of our enemy is still our enemy
So why will you palm it and resist insanity
That's how the Taliban began
Put your music turn around and
Ain't no weapons that Americans
How's it feel to be a widow maker
Taker of the father of the family
Your tragedy is playing that's the stakes
The scoff at the Saigon link
Flash those pearlies
Take us way past the perimeter

And we knew you were frauds
Onwards we went to war
Nothing could be said to promise you
We've already seen it before

Someone coulda told you it'd end like this
They did you didn't listen you can take a trip

Lookin’ back 2020 mistakes I got many
And the truth is that I'll probably do it again

No-one could have ever half sway your mind
We've been there before but it's not the time

Lookin’ back 2020 mistakes I got many
And the truth is that I'll probably do it again

There's something familiar, bout the story you told me
The way that you mouthed it, is not what you sold me
I guess I'm one of many, yet you ignored the signs
You made it personal, don't spin me them lies
You can't relax, cause it occurred on your watch
History will judge you cause you're all that we've got
Is anyone listening? Are you fucking insane?
Am I twisted watching as it plays out again?

The truth is we knew this, people aren't stupid
You play the innocent because you think we let you do
it
We think you're to ruthless
Show you where the point of the boot is
It's all about where the fucking proof is
You'll keep an eye on that new kid
He's liable to do shit
If you don't keep a check on it beyond your electorate
Peace in Iraq man, stay in Afghanistan
Lookin’ for Osama, getting killed by the Taliban
War on drugs, war on terror, 9/11
We knew where Johnny stood, where's Kevin?
Don't get me wrong alarm clocks from Heaven
Going off when the country woke up in ‘07
But there's no letting up no
We're just getting up off the canvas
That very fact demands that
We stay as vigilant as can be
Transparency another AWB, but we'll see

Even as we applaud
And we show them the door
But we warn you that we're wary
Cause we've already seen it before

Someone coulda told you it'd end like this
They did you didn't listen you can take a trip

Lookin’ back 2020 mistakes I got many
And the truth is that I'll probably do it again

No-one could have ever half sway your mind
We've been there before but it's not the time

Lookin’ back 2020 mistakes I got many
And the truth is that I'll probably do it again

Someone coulda told you it'd end like this
They did you didn't listen you can take a trip

Lookin’ back 2020 mistakes I got many
And the truth is that I'll probably do it again

No-one could have ever half sway your mind
We've been there before but it's not the time

Lookin’ back 2020 mistakes I got many
And the truth is that I'll probably do it again
