The name of the enemy always changes, but the war between the haves and the have-nots continues to rage, as it has for the past several thousand years, as it will until there’s sanity in the world, or until there is no more world.

Story behind the song
The name of the enemy always changes, but the war between the haves and the have-nots continues to rage, as it has for the past several thousand years, as it will until there’s sanity in the world, or until there is no more world.
Lyrics
You can say that it's about the savages You can say you have a better way to live You can call it Manifest Destiny You can talk of all your civilization will give You can say that we're a thing of history And progress is the future you will bring You can send your armies to these mountains You can say we'll prosper beneath your king (Chorus) But there will always be resistance The next battle will always be near As long as you have everything There will be those who have nothing to fear And little by little, or maybe all at once you will lose Because our future is not yours to choose You can say that you've got to stop the communists You can say that our ideals can't succeed You can say that competition is the only way And a global system based on greed And you can call yourself a democrat You can call yourself whatever you will And you can keep on stamping out the fires you start So you might stay on top of the hill (Chorus) You can say that all of us are traitors Because we oppose your wars of conquest And your scheming corporations And all the crimes that they have not confessed You can say that we are not patriots Because our nation is not your empire Because we refuse to stand idly by As our cities are rising up in fire (Chorus) And you can say that all of us are terrorists Madmen bent on destroying all that's free You can say that we are building weapons As your bombers fly from sea to bloody sea You can say you're with us or against us And to die quietly is what we now must do You can maintain your innocence You can say that you are many, as you represent the few (Chorus) ----- Created November, 2002 Copyright David Rovics 2002, all rights reserved
