Welcome to Bush's America

Welcome to Bush's America - The place where performing a Bob Dylan song gets you a visit from the Secret Service. Who was it that hated our freedom?



School Talent Show Draws Secret Service

Colorado Band Singing Dylan Song Seen as Threatening

President Bush


BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 12, 2004 -Parents and students say they are outraged and offended by a proposed band name and song scheduled for a high school talent show in Boulder this evening, but members of the band, named Coalition of the Willing, said the whole thing is being blown out of proportion.

The students told ABC News affiliate KMGH-TV in Denver they are performing Bob Dylan's song "Masters of War" during the Boulder High School Talent Expos ébecause they are Dylan fans. They said they want to express their views and show off their musical abilities.

Threatening the president is a federal crime, so the Secret Service was called to the school to investigate. Students in the band said they're just singing the lyrics and not inciting anyone to do anything.

The 1963 song ends with the lyrics: "You might say that I'm young. You might
say I'm unlearned, but there's one thing I know, though I'm younger than
you, even Jesus would never forgive what you do .And I hope that you die and
your death'll come soon. I will follow your casket in the pale afternoon.
And I'll watch while you're lowered down to your deathbed. And I'll stand
o'er your grave 'til I'm sure that you're dead."


'We Were Just Singing' The students told KMGH they never threatened the president and never changed the lyrics to the song.

"It's just Bob Dylan's song. We were just singing Bob Dylan's song .If you think it has to do with Bush that's because you're drawing your own conclusions. We never conveyed that Bush was the person we were talking about," said Allysse Wojtanek-Watson, a singer for the band.


"She never said anything about killing Bush .It's crazy, it's chaos. We have nothing in there it says about killing Bush," band leader Forest Engstrom told KMGH. The principal of the school said he stands behind the students.

Lyrics

MASTERS OF WAR

Come you masters of war
You that build all the guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks.

You that never done nothin'
But build to destroy
You play with my world
Like it's your little toy
You put a gun in my hand
And you hide from my eyes
And you turn and run farther
When the fast bullets fly.

Like Judas of old
You lie and deceive
A world war can be won
You want me to believe
But I see through your eyes
And I see through your brain
Like I see through the water
That runs down my drain.

You fasten all the triggers
For the others to fire
Then you set back and watch
When the death count gets higher
You hide in your mansion'
As young people's blood
Flows out of their bodies
And is buried in the mud.

You've thrown the worst fear
That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ain't worth the blood
That runs in your veins.

How much do I know
To talk out of turn
You might say that I'm young
You might say I'm unlearned
But there's one thing I know
Though I'm younger than you
That even Jesus would never
Forgive what you do.

Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul.

And I hope that you die
And your death'll come soon
I will follow your casket
In the pale afternoon
And I'll watch while you're lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I'll stand over your grave
'Til I'm sure that you're dead.
