Elbow - Leaders Of The Free World [lyrics & youtube]

I think of this song whenever I hear of some new military involvement in the world, whether it's the USA or the Koreas. Do yourself a favor and listen to this and read part of the lyrics below the video. - jdm

"My thinking isn't driven
But the music always gives me a lift
I'm so easy to please, yeah
But I think we dropped the baton like the 60's didn't happen, oh no!

Oh periscope up
Should be looking for a ladder
I need to see the commander in chief
And remind him what was passed onto YOU AND me

Your mum don't sleep!
And the friends you keep!
I didn't raise a thief!
I didn't raise a thief!

But the leaders of the free world
Are just little boys throwing stones
And it's easy to ignore
Till they're knocking on the door of your homes"
- Leaders of The Free World by Elbow
