WHO KILLED BARACK OBAMA?

Words by Mike Brooks

Artwork by Peter Fuss


Everyone’s got hope so I’m sorry to disappoint

It might seem a brave new dawn, but I think you’ve missed the point

That nothing has really changed, all the attitude’s the same

And someone’s gonna want to keep the status quo


Who killed Barack Obama? Yes a culprit must be found

Can we blame the CIA or a subversive underground?

A terrorism plot to destabilise the West?

The responsibility lies with us


If you make a man an idol he is judged beyond his means

Bound by law and due process, more limited than he seems

Expectation weighs down hard, feel the pressure of the past

And all too soon resentment creeps back in

Luther King was shot down in his prime before the dream got stuck

Kennedy is best remembered for not knowing when to duck

Guevara’s face is selling shirts for market stalls and band adverts

A symbol now detached from all meaning


Who killed Barack Obama? Yes a culprit must be found

Can we blame the CIA or a subversive underground?

A terrorism plot to destabilise the West?

The responsibility lies with us


Who can save us now?

Who can save us now?


We killed Barack Obama, yes it’s time to take the blame

Unrealistic expectations helped him to his grave

Not a saint and not your saviour, just as human as the next

The responsibility lies with us


The responsibility lies with us
