Intel Paranoia

They made up reasons to start a war with Iraq, and there’s no reason to think they won’t try to do it again. Here, courtesy of The Eagles’ “Hotel California” is my take on it. I hope you enjoy it. Oh, and the performance is from a 1994 reunion concert. It’s a wonderful acoustic version, with a nice, deceptive intro. I think you’ll like it.

Intel Paranoia
Original Words & Music “Hotel California, The Eagles
Additional Lyrics Wayne A. Schneider, 2008

In a dark secret basement, deep down in a lair
Firm sense of denial, rising up ev’rywhere
Up above on a big board, I saw a red flashing light
My heart grew heavy and my thoughts grew grim, I had to see who we’d fight
There he stood in the doorway, I heard the warning bell
And I was thinking to myself, “This could be Cheney and this would be hell”
Then he pulled out a binder and he showed me his plan
He was bracing for a foreign war to take out Iran

Welcome to the Intel Paranoia
Such a scary place, (such a scary place), such a scary place
Plenty of lies in the Intel Paranoia
Any type of fear, (any type of fear) you can find it here

His mind is ill-fully twisted; he’s got those scowls and those grins
He’s got a lot of pretty wealthy boys he calls friends
How they planned for the desert, sweet Persian crude
Some planned for revolting, some planned for a coup
Someone called out to Cheney, “Please take out his life”
He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here since 1969”
And still those rumors are coming from far away
Write them up in the middle of the night, then you’ll hear them say,

Welcome to the Intel Paranoia
Such a scary place, (such a scary place), such a scary place
Making it up in the Intel Paranoia
Don’t you be surprised, (don’t you be surprised) it’s a pack of lies

“People caught in battle, in this campaign we fight”
And he said, “They will all be prisoners here, and they’ll have no rights”
In the bastard’s chambers, they gathered there to meet,
They slap it with their seedy lies but they just can’t see defeat
Last thing I remember I was running for the door
I had to warn the public fast he was taking us to war
“Relax,” said the generals, “We are brought in to deceive.
You can tell them anything you like, but they will not believe.”
