1. Guantanamo Bay

From the recording Souled Out



Indefinite detention in the ultimate prison camp:
The water boarding is breathless!
Though it might leave you tired and damp.
The staff is so friendly; they LOVE their jobs,
They would even work with no pay.
I hear it's nice this time of year
Down there in Guantanamo Bay.

They'll take you tomorrow
Even if your bomb is a dud.
And if you get very lucky,
They'll paint you with fake menstrual blood.
If you join in the hunger strike,
You can all share the same feeding tube.
It's quite the lovely retreat
Down there in Guantanamo Bay.

The USA…
The beacon of Freedom and Hope.
If you end up in prison
Make sure that you don't drop your soap.
The NDAA, The Patriot Act
Our Homeland Security...
How long 'till they send you and me
Down there to Guantanamo Bay.

Vacation jewel of the Global Detention Tour,
A great place to send your tired,
Your hungry and maybe your poor.
Don't send me to Abu Ghraib in Iraq,
Or Bagram Afghanistan.
Make sure there's a cot left for me
Down there in Guantanamo Bay.

I just may never return
From down there in Guantanamo Bay.

Who needs Geneva Conventions
Down there in Guantanamo Bay.

Habeas Corpus be damned
Down there in Guantanamo Bay.
