How did we get to this lord?
How did we get to this?
How did we get to this lord?
How did we get to this?
How did we get to this lord?
How did we get to this?
How did we get to this lord?
How did we get to this?
(We want your oil)
(We want your oil)
The villages are mined the contracts been signed
we'll tell you one more time
(We want your oil)
Supply no longer guaranteed we demand security
Running out of Texas tea
(We want your oil)
We're the children of the CIA we want somewhere new to play
Better get right out of the way
(We want your oil)
Civilization birth nerve centre of the earth
Welcome to our new turf
(We want your oil)
How did we get to this lord?
How did we get to this?
How did we get to this lord?
How did we get to this?
(We want your oil)
Smart bomb with more brains than the President
Blipping and bleeping as they target residents
Of market squares and hospital wards King rat is safe in the wings of the hawk
While King rat is safe in the wings of the hawk
Watch me now
Beat seeking missile gonna blast yer mind out
Bomb for peace I'm gonna burn your eyes out
I'm covering my ears don't wanna receive it
I'm trembling in fear say me can't belive it
Inspector defector arms dealer revealer
Document leaker over here Mr.Speaker
I spin refugee like Mohammed Ali
Me say no Iraqi ever called me Paki
How did we get to this lord?
How did we get to this?
A secret never to be told always to be sold
Digging up the Black gold
(We want your oil)
Petro junkies must be fed Going Barefoot in the head
S.U.V's and warheads
(We want your oil)
Tearing up formalities there is no neutrality
Welcome to reality
(We want your oil)
Ignore treates line by line Litte countries fall behind
The lunatics will lead the blind
(We want your oil)
The lunatics will the blind
How did we get to this lord?
How did we get to this?
How did we get to this lord?
How did we get to this?
