Dangerous Game - Bill Madden

Here we are
Once again
In all our vain-
glorious ambition
No doubt or
Second guess
And damned
The consequence
When the end
Is Justified
By ever changing
Reasons and lies
When hubris rules
Honesty wanes
It's a dangerous game

It's easy
To rationalize
When it's someone
Else's life
Power makes even
The coward brave
It's a dangerous game

Black gold
At what cost
How many innocent
Lives have been lost
How many barrels of
Blood does it take
To fill an SUV
These days
All this
And what for
This land's now a
Festering open sore
How long
Are we stayin'
It's a dangerous game
We're playin'

It's a dangerous game
It's a dangerous game
It's a dangerous game
We're playin'
