Land of Confusion
Disturbed does a fantastic job with this song. This song has not lost it's relevance. Here is a video I found with Distubed's version. If invaded and occupied...what would we do? I think this video answers it very well.

I must've dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
But I can hear the marching feet
They're moving into the street.

Now did you read the news today
They say the danger's gone away
But I can see the fire's still alight
There burning into the night.

There's too many men
Too many people
Making too many problems
And not much love to go round
Can't you see
This is a land of confusion.

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

Ooh Superman where are you now
When everything's gone wrong somehow
The men of steel, the men of power
Are losing control by the hour.

This is the time
This is the place
So we look for the future
But there's not much love to go round
Tell me why, this is a land of confusion.

1. Ugh. Too bad it's Disturbed. I prefer Nevermore for my political music.
7. The Tiananmen Man (Lyrics and Music by Nevermore, don't sue me, all that crap)

On June Fifth, in the Year of Eighty-Nine
He was unarmed with focused mind
Deflance glared down the barrel of the gun
Pointed from a tank in tiananmen square
And he stood there:
To control, to manipulate, the media his power slave

He knew the world was watching, knew he had a plan
To confront the powerful tyranny in the square of tiananmen
Ecstatic youth played with fire, freedom wash over them
Democracy their desire, the tiananmen man had a plan
Manipulate the media

He used blind faith in the face of anarchy
The cybernetic rapture has begun to envelop me
Freedom is the rush, adrenaline high
Choice of the oppressed wiling to die
Like a hostage the government holds your drug

To control, to manipulate, the media his power slave
He knew the world was watching, knew he had a plan
To confront the powerful tyranny in the square of tiananmen
Ecstatic youth played with fire, freedom wash over them
Democracy their desire, the tiananmen man had a plan
Manipulate the media

His act was a cybernetic gesture
His act was a cybernetic gesture

He knew the world was watching, knew he had a plan
To confront the powerful tyranny in the square of tiananmen
Ecstatic youth played with fire, freedom wash over them
Democracy their desire, the tiananmen man had a plan
Manipulate the media, manipulate the media
Manipulate to control
