A song I wrote about Libya. Here are the words:

What does it mean
When you intervene

Choose a warring side
Hope that you're right

Guns across the border
Missiles over the water

Give weapons to your friends
Till their friendship ends

Oh Mr. O
Guess you didn't know
O Mr. O
War gets out of control

Bodies in the street
Pity's quick retreat

Time to call a truce
But it's no use

Oh Mr. O
Guess you didn't know
Oh Mr. O
War gets out of control

Oh Mr. Man
You're no humanitarian
You weaponized the Arab Spring
And that changed everything

Oh Mr. O
Guess you didn't know
What it really means
When you intervene
