  1. Hello. Sorry this has taken a long time to respond, but here go the lyrics:

    My city never sleeps
    In tha distance do I hear soprano sax or drone attacks?
    Night vision sensor beeps
    Target locked, Darpa profits, phosphorus bombs, carnage is common
    Helicopters like I’m walkin’ in ‘Nam
    New widows every week
    In tha mirror it’s civilian casualty, collateral damage or enemy combatant?
    No choice but carry munitions, I’m forced to Yankee resistance
    ‘Cause protest/prayer don’t lessen extraordinary rendition
    …Imprisoned Guantanamo Bay, sensory deprivation, swimming in waterboarding
    Innocents slaughtered all week, minimum media coverage
    Pillage and rape tha people, B-52 Bomber’s foreplay
    Dreams: relatives skeletons weapons discharged to stomach
    Open my eyes Obama increased tha Defense Department budget
    They said freedom/democracy that’s when tha nightmares came
    Shock and awe Iraq version Disney Electric Light Parade

    Lullabye, Lullabomb, hear tha cry of tha young
    New insurgent Tossin’, turnin, Kabul burnin’,
    Insomnia certain. Shoot first, mom!
    Uncle Tom wants troop surges

    Babies born deformed experiments gone wrong
    According to warlords their cause is right
    Lethal chemicals breathed by fetal specimens
    Each and every pregnancy we gon’ mourn tonight
    Bodies twisted like tha penmanship’s calligraphy
    Voiceless victims of violence ’cause limbs are where their lips should be
    Oil rigs become private, mercenaries majority
    Torture prisons hide, takin’ pictures of inmate strip routines
    Your country tis of the-f-t, Liberty let’s see
    If my missile heat headrest feels like your M16
    You left it on an uninvolved civilian
    Mustache, brown skin, turban cost our children
    Y’all extremists REAL terrorists evil equals intent to
    KILL for Lockheed CEO elites that you’ll never meet at their
    GRILL Peel caps of poor people ain’t seen a meal since your last congressional
    SEAL, bullets are sleeping pills

    Lullabye, Lullabomb, hear tha cry of tha young
    New insurgent Tossin’, turnin, Kabul burnin’,
    Insomnia certain. Shoot first, mom!
    Uncle Tom wants troop surges

    I see tha Brown & Black soldiers, how they treat ’em awful
    Gang raped and mutilated, like Lavena Johnson
    Tha Spanish speakers fight for citizenship
    While tha Black ones think that white folks is interested they enlist!
    Poverty good recruit, laugh at Black skinned armor
    Brown is bulletproof, Africannon fodder
    How they make it to tha front lines of tha gun deployment?
    Same way they at tha front lines of tha unemployment!
    Sergeant cuttin corners think we won’t take P.O.W.’s
    Recruit amongst tha coloreds like tha Viet Cong accustomed to
    Convince ’em we got common cause ’til Uncle Sam’s inaudible
    We allies in tha struggle, suffocate commanding officers!
    Our war memorials would need a poet laureate to write
    Each freedom fighter and innocent bystander daughter/son
    ‘Cause this notorious empire strikes with gory lust
    Tha red, white and blue’s in tha sights of new Afghani warriors

    DIVIDE & Conquer won’t work this time (Peace is a language that they don’t understand)
    Divide and conquer won’t work this time (Tell peaceful protest 2 tha terrorist on my land)

    This is a parent’s story FROM
    Occupied territories GUN
    By my side ready loaded HUNG
    Cyanide necklace never die lonely!
    Palestine, Lebanon surprise! America & Israel thought genocide was single-side only!

  2. Thanks for your reply Sese, regardless of its timing. Would you mind other Treble Army lyrics posted on this site? I have a few other tunes I transcribed during long car rides haha

    Amierdaca has disappeared from emusic though, but is still available via the cultural oligarchs Amazon and probably their more monopolistic analogue, iTunes. Know anything about that? Folks should be able to support this music with trickle change (such as it is), but without patronizing Big Culture.

    For historical purposes, my flawed transcription:
    _______________

    My city never sleeps
    In the distance do I hear soprano sax or drone attacks?
    My distance sensor beeps
    Target pipelines for profits, phosphorus bombs, carnage is common
    Helicopters like I’m walking in ‘Nam
    New widows every week
    In the mirror it’s civilian casualty collateral damage or enemy combatant
    No choice but carry munitions (I’m forced to) Yankee resistance
    There’s bullets spraying on less-than-extraordinary-rendition
    In prison Guantanamo Bay sensory deprivation swimming and waterboarding
    Innocents slaughtered all with minimum media coverage
    Pillage and rape the people B-52 bombers foreplay
    Dreams relative skeletons weapons discharge their stomachs
    Open my eyes Obama increased Defense Department budget
    They said freedom democracy that’s when the nightmares came
    Shock & awe the Iraq version of Disney’s Electric Light Parade
    Lullaby, lullabomb hear the cry of the young new insurgent tossin turnin Kabul burnin
    Insomnia is certain, shoot first mom Uncle Tom wants two surges
    Babies born deformed experiments gone wrong
    Accordin to warlords their cause is right
    Lethal chemicals breathed by fetal specimens
    Each and every pregnancy be goin wrong tonight
    Bodies twisted like penmanships calligraphy
    Voiceless victims of violence cos limbs are where they lips should be
    Oil rigs become proper mercenaries’ majority
    Torture prisons are taking pictures of inmate stripper teams
    Your country tis of thee FT
    Liberty let’s see
    If my missile heat headrush feels like your M-16
    You left it on an uninvolved civilian: moustache, brown skin, terror-causing children
    Yellow stream is real terrorist evil equals intent to kill
    But like the CEO elites that you’ll never meet at the grill
    Feral cats and poor people ain’t seen a meal
    Since your last Congressional seal, bullets are sleeping pills!
    Lullaby, lullabomb…
    I see the black & brown soldiers how they treat em awful
    Gang raped and mutilated, like LaVena Johnson
    The Spanish speakers fight for citizenship
    While the black folks think that whitefolks is interested they enlist
    Poverty get recruit, laugh at blacks in armor
    Brown is bulletproof, Afro-cannonfodder
    How they make it to the front line of gun deployments
    Same way they make it to the front lines of the unemployments
    Sergeant cutting corners think we won’t take POWs
    Recruit among the colors like the Viet Cong or _______
    To convince them we got common cause and Uncle Sam’s inaudible
    We allies in this struggle, suffocate commanding officers
    Our war memorials need a poet laureate to write its freedom fightin ____ daughter son
    Cause it’s notorious empire strikes are goryless
    The red white and blue’s in the sights of new Afghani warriors
    Divide and conquer won’t work this time.
    This is a language that they can’t understand
    Divide and conquer won’t work this time.
    Tell peaceful protests keep the terrorists off my land!
    This is a terror story from occupied territories
