Accessory Before the Fact Lyrics

9. Accessory Before the Fact (5:31)
(Lyrics: Patrik Sporrong)

You’ve built your opinions on very thin ice
You’ve given your faith for a pack of lies
You only see what you want to see
Your cardinal sin-hypocrisy

You say! Your country’s for your countrymen
Destroy! You cry if foreigners don’t understand

You’re an accessory
You’re an accessory
Before the fact
You say – USA for USA
And that’s the way – it’s gotta stay –
Come what may…

You’ve always ignored reality
You close your door as firmly as your mind
The things that you don’t care to know
Will bring about your ignorant demise
It’s closer than you think – one day
You’ll find yourself in the midst of
Armageddon!
Armageddon!

Too late! Self-reproach won’t help you learn
Your fate! It’s sealed-now it’s your turn
You’re an accessory
You’re an accessory

Before the fact
Is your brain on vacation or has it left you
For good?
Why do you say the things you say-
You said you understood

You say! Your country’s for your countrymen
Destroy! You cry if foreigners don’t understand

You’re a bigot, no remorse
A dumb machine-“Up the Cause!”
So caught up in pettiness
You’ll miss the signs of total loss

Мы все беспокоимся о напряженносмиъ мире
We are all aware of international tension
У нас призраиный смрах перед несущесмъугощими врдгдми
And in supposed fear of supposed enemies
Но поцему маомказываемосяом ъозможносмиизменимъдто
Why do you refuse the opportunity to advance culturally
Всё раъно мъоя философия осмаемся неизменной
By adhering to such an inadequate and irrelevant philosophy?

Too late! Self-reproach won’t help you learn
Your fate! It’s sealed-now it’s your turn

World War One
Vietnam, Afghanistan
World War Two
Iran-Iraq, Arab-Israel
World War Three
Yes, it could be

You say! Your country’s for your countrymen
You’ll die! Ignorant of the worldwide scheme
