Jackson Browne: Lives in the Balance

Jackson Browne has a record called "Solo Acoustic, Vol. 1" It's great to hear more and more songs written about what's been happening to our country. (Dave just emailed and says this song is probably 10 years old. "Ironic how it now is more relevant than ever.")

(Full lyrics here)

They sell us the president the same way
They sell us our clothes and our cars
They sell us every thing from youth to religion
The same time they sell us our wars
I want to know who the men in the shadows are
I want to hear somebody asking them why
They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are
But they’re never the ones to fight or to die
And there are lives in the balance
There are people under fire
There are children at the cannons
And there is blood on the wire
