This Should be our Anthem

Post by bigrex on Thu 17 Oct 2013, 18:30

Surprising as it may sound, but I found this gem of wisdom buried in a heavy metal song from a band called Disturbed. The song is called Deify, and was written about George W, but applies to Harper just as well.

"All my devotion betrayed
I am no longer afraid
I was too blinded to see
How much you've stolen from me

You want to know why I feel so horrified?
I've let my innocence die
You want to know why I can't be pacified?
You made me bury something
I won't be sleeping tonight

I only wanted a blessing made
Now I've been labeled a renegade
It seems so clear now what I must do
You're no immortal
I won't let them
Deify you
They view you as the new messiah
Deify you
Renew belief in some demented man

You want to know why it seems the passion's died?
We've all been living this lie
You want to know why my will's been fortified?
You've made me hunger again
Good luck sleeping tonight

I only wanted a blessing made
Now I've been labeled a renegade
It seems so clear now what I must do
You're no immortal
I won't let them
Deify you
They view you as the new messiah
Deify you
Renew belief in some demented man

All my devotion betrayed
I am no longer afraid
I was too blinded to see
How much you've stolen from me

Deify you
They view you as the new messiah
Deify you
Renew belief in some demented man"

Yes Rex, I agree, I am not a Harper fan, but what bothers me is what party to vote for come election time, not a whole lot to choose from, who will best serve the Veteran community ? We will leave that for another time.

By the way, I hope you don't mind, I went to a Birthday party on the Weekend, and I stole your Cape Breton coal miners joke, all present enjoyed it, at least they all had a good Laugh. And not one said that they have heard it before. LOL.

Our anthem should be a poppy void of colour with a black maple leaf as the centre piece, that alone would show the Canadian population that our sacrifice was more than just a couple of minutes for a lousy 20 year pension. It matters not what party you elect it matters more that even voting will not allow a voice you have to stand taller than that silent vote you must be visible and united for the rights of all veterans. Ok enough going to chop wood
