We live in the land of the brave and the free
But your nationalist ideals just do not apply to me
I'm sick of all the shit you use to rationalize hate
The world's only superpower needs to learn its place

With good intentions and bombs on our side
We'll kill evil doers until they comply
But what if we take a look outside and see
The true evil comes from you and me

Icarus is flying too close to the sun
The plans and the dreams that we have made slowly come undone
Which of the enemies inspires more hate
Saddam Hussein or the United States?

So don't believe the lies they feed you every day
Decide for yourself and go your own way
And when they try to tell you what to do
Raise your fist and say FUCK YOU!
