Sick of the Lies by MC Xander published on 2010/12/21 16:33:45 +0000 I wrote this after 2001 while the war in Afghanistan was under-way. So there is a political backdrop to it. But, I wrote the song feeling that the conflict and deception seen between countries on the global stage is projection of the personal and inter-personal conflict many of us feel in the 'closeness' of our own life-world. We have every right to be angry about governments pushing agendas that don't match the will of the people, but we should be equally concerned about our own part in personal deceptions, troubles and conflicts - the wars that we can probably do more about. It's no good crusading for peace in the world if we can't have peace in our lives.
