Take George Bush to Afghanistan
He's gonna bathe in a river of blood
He wants to party till the wheels fall off
Six feet under ground

What the world needs
Is another dead cowboy

Take George Bush to Afghanistan
Throw him in an oil pit, six feet deep, six feet wide
We're gonna cook him till his ears fall off

What the world needs
Is another dead cowboy

    General Commenti can understand the "What the world needs/Is another dead cowboy", but is the rest just interpretation, or taken from the booklet or what? I can't really follow any of the rest. I also agree with Rabid, this is way darker than the rest.

    General Commentno rhetoric, they know gwb is awful and envision (in their minds) a scenario which may be as close to justice as possible.

    General Commentit'd have more of an effect if you could actually understand what they're saying
