Armed Metropolis - New Orleans' Occupied lyrics

Tanks occupy New Orleans, subjugating this event

Soldiers armed with M-16s, protect private developments

As relief assists the victims, and build first aid hospitals out of tents

Washington gives out orders to open fire on command

As poverty casts its shadows over the ruins now overflowing

those in office steal all the funds, to maintain their oil conquest from deploying

Its profit over people, and its clearly shown

Their actions are inhumane even here at home

If you honestly think they didnt know, youve swallowed their propagandas

Concerns about the levees were warned weeks before Katrina

But their sight focused on the pipelines, shipping oil to the states

As families drowned under the tides from busted water gates

Auditoriums are overcrowded, battalions organized by activists

To inform others about the arrests made on independent journalists

Its profit over people, and its clearly shown

Their actions are inhumane even here at home

Its a battlefield outside, theyve got us all under martial law

barricades between us, crammed in to shopping malls

Now their sketching diagrams to rebuild and restore stability

Draining out potential regions to upstart economy

Unmarked cars and convoys patrol with assault rifles in hand

FEMA wasnt there to assist but there to profit off leftovers of the land

Its profit over people, and its clearly shown

Their actions are inhumane even here at home

New Orleans isnt a history story, its happening right now

Just because its not televised doesnt mean the disappeared were found

Aid medics rushed to the scenes, a day after the hurricane hit

As the military helicopters circled disaster areas and didnt do shit

Rowing boats searching for people waving helplessly on rooftops

While Bush sent reinforcements of mercenaries, contractors and cops

Its profit over people, and its clearly shown

Their actions are inhumane even here at home

As the water fills our lungs

We wait for help to come



New Orleanss occupied
