In your plane in the blue sky
You roam again
Words that echo in your mind
Make your heart beat faster
This is no Vietnam
We will win in Iraq

The president said let it ride
Islam be damned
Make your last stand
In Baghdad

Warrior, the time bombs about to go
What will you feel
Will you ever wonder
If the man that's in your sights
Ever kissed his girl goodbye

The captain kill or die
Islam be damned
Make your last stand
In Baghdad

Great Satan

Our flags are burning

Soon America may find
It's young men in the sand
Where the casualty
Is just a number
In Iraq

The president said let it ride
You will be damned
Make your last stand
In Baghdad

    General CommentI definatly like tehran a bit better. Baghdad is too slow and the lyric change dosn't work very well.

    General CommentThis song is actually ''Tehran'' with new words. The most ironic part is ''You will be damned/Make your last stand....''

    General CommentMy cousin just came back from Iraq, and he told me about the people he killed, he was a marine sniper, and that reminded me of the part in this song,"If the man that's in your sights ever kissed his girl goodbye"

    General CommentSo they're defending the barbarians responsible for a wide majority of the world's problems, and who slaughtered innocent Americans even BEFORE we invaded them? These bands need to find something else to whine about.
