Story Behind the Song

The administrations' spin on the events of 9/11/12(and the death of 4 Americans) dictated that this song be written, revealing the president's real motive for spinning the events in Benghazi, Libya.

Lyrics

We all know just what you knew
Before, during and after
The head of the CIA - he told us so
The story changed - got re-arranged
But nobody knows by whom (the question is)
Who's in command at the Situation Room?

Is it a cover up?
No one's perfect - we all make mistakes
But if it's a cover up
That's somethin' we just can't forgive
Either it's a cover up
Or someone's been asleep at the wheel
To err is human, but we
Just can't forgive

A cover up - a cover up

Your U.N. girl, then you at the U.N
Kept the story goin'
Even though you knew the real truth
A video-induced spontaneous mob it was not
How could you not know you'd be in this spot?

It's feelin' like a cover up
No one's perfect - we all make mistakes
But if it's a cover up
That's somethin' we just can't forgive
Maybe it's a cover up
'Cause it didn't fit your narrative
To err is human, but we
Just can't forgive

A cover up - a cover up - a cover up

As commander-in-chief
You stole truth like a thief
With the talking points you made a slight correction
Four Americans lost
But you refused to let it cost you
Your precious presidential re-election
More and more it's lookin' like

It's lookin' more and more like a cover up
No one's perfect - we all make mistakes
But if it's a cover up
That's somethin' we just can't forgive
Either it's a cover up
Or what was that that Susan Rice was smokin'
To err is human, but we
Just can't forgive

A cover up -a cover up
A cover up -a cover up - a cover up
