“We Know They Lied” tackles the devastation wrought by a corporate duopoly disguised as political parties in the U.S. – false wars driven by greed and avarice; a decimated middle class; and, a justice system that is of, by and for elites. A system that is racist, regressive and punitive for nothing more than profit and control! We must #StopTheAbuse of the American people, and in turn the world – the struggle begins at home!…

“We Know They Lied”
Words & Music by Steve Scott

Shadows stalk the cross
Crescent moon’s on fire
Victims of lies
Angels come to die
Families blown to hell
Children cry alone
Dogs roam these dark streets
Innocence long gone

We know they lied
They know they lied to us again
We know they lied
Does no one love me?

Hypnotized by greed
Trample those in need
Poverty denied
Dis-occupy divide
Pressures beat the drum
Plenty more to come
Packaged in a lie
Banksters all deny

We know they lied
They know they lied to us again
We know they lied
Does no one love me?

Authority and fear
Police state’s all in gear
Resist’s another lie
Cause for you to die
Loved ones on the ground
What the hell’s goin’ down
The devil and his guns
Got you on the run

We know they lied
They know they lied to us again
We know they lied
Does no one love me?
