Wave the flags
as they march off to war.
The body bag count
doesn’t matter anymore.

How quickly we become uncivilized when the dirt kicked
is kicked in our eyes.
A world away they drop bombs

while back at home
every car has a flag sticker on.
And they sing patriotic songs.
And no one knows
what’s really going on.

Open your eyes.
They’re killing kids.
We’re supposed to be the better man. We’re doing the same things they did. We bomb a wedding,
we bomb our allies,
we bomb and we bomb.
Let the bombs decide!
Let the bombs decide.

Don’t get me wrong,
I love my country.
But killing innocent people is something I don’t want to see.
Would it be so easy
to turn the other cheek,
if the kids that were dying lived just down the street.

Open your eyes.
They’re killing kids.
We’re supposed to be the better man. We’re doing the same things they did. We bomb a wedding,
we bomb our allies ,
we bomb and we bomb,
Let the bombs decide!
Let the bombs decide!
