Finger Points Back
Author: Ben Franklin


We invented alcohol
We invented cigarettes,
Got hooked
Then the pharmaceutical industry Invented highly priced

We invent our own anger and rage,
We are the ones that keep our happiness caged.

We have invented these drug wars
On the streets,
Our different religious beliefs have
Caused many a conflict in the Middle East

We have invented Tony Blair,
If you were guilty of not voting for another party
Then youre the reason he is still there

We invent our own problems,
We are our own pollution,
Dont point the finger at anyone are the solution.
