Camp Casey Is Here To Stay
by Maioan Person

VERSE 1
It's been tough on the frontlines in the fight against the war,
But finally there's a hero we have all been waiting for.
Cindy Sheehan has declared that our kids should die no more,
So she sat down to confron the man who began this war.
Her son was killed in Iraq, he was only 24...
So, she has asked the President "What did my son die for?"
Now the name of Casey Sheehan shall live forever more;
The camp that bears his name has redefined the war.

CHORUS
Camp Casey is here to stay, it's coming to your town.
Those who wish we would go away cannot deny we have found
A common thread that is raisng the dead to bring the masters of war down.
Camp Casey is here to stay and it's right here in our town.

VERSE 2
Many Soldiers have died, Casey's not the only one,
But now the mistake we've made is summed up in one mothers son.
& for every soldier that has died there is at least a hundred more
Innocent civillians who have given their lives for
The lies of those who try to claim we are fighting to defend
Freedom or security as an excuse to send
Our young men and women to die in a foriegn land
In order to profit off the oil hidden beneath the
sand.

REPEAT CHORUS
Camp Casey is here to stay, it's coming to your town.
Those who wish we would go away cannot deny we have found
A common thread that is raisng the dead to bring the masters of war down.
Camp Casey is here to stay and it's right here in our town.
-
Oh god, I am sorry to say, there is a Casey Sheehan from every town.
-
It's been tough on the frontlines in the fight against the war,
But finally there's a hero we have all been waiting for.
Cindy Sheehan has declared that our kids should die no more

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
