Bush Speaks Directly to Me: 'Passive' by 'A Perfect Circle'

This song haunts me. It's just the words.
Wake up and face me.
Don’t play dead.
'cause, maybe someday I’ll walk away and say, “You fucking disappoint me. Maybe you’re better off this way ."
Well, the soldier demons in the video with half skulls and their brains scooped out do remind me of Bush voters, but it's mostly the words.

Like the guy is saying he can fuck up the entire world, and rather than make a real effort to stop him, I'm just letting it happen. Putting aside a decidedly broad streak of megalomania, andybody else get that feeling watching the video?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Haven't seen it... but if W is speaking to you, I'm a bit concerned for you.

I concede I'm a bit concerned as well. I knew I was close to the edge, but which side of the edge is coming into question.

Come to the light.... come to the (blue) light.
It'll be ok, just keep surrounding yourself with blue.
