One trillion dollars can buy a lot of bling
One trillion dollars can buy most anything
One trillion dollars buying bullets, buying guns
One trillion dollars in the hands of killers, thugs

Fuck the world, a lot of people gonna die tonight
Fuck the world, fuck 'em all

One trillion dollars in Africa, Iraq
One trillion dollars and it's never coming back
One trillion dollars can buy some badass drugs
One trillion dollars makes me wanna kill myself

Fuck the world, a lot of people gonna die tonight
Fuck the world, fuck 'em all

Until the sun burns from the sky
Until the sun burns so bright this world is no more
Til the sun burns from the sky
And all the people are just dust on the ground

One trillion dollars can buy a heart and soul
One trillion dollars buying nations of the world
One trillion dollars can make the fat lady sing
One trillion dollars, what a bullshit useless thing

Fuck the world, a lot of people gonna die tonight
Fuck the world, fuck 'em all

    General CommentWow, well said Jesus Of Suburbia, but even more so clarelvsmychem. People are so fucking ignorant, saying that everyone sold out and having no idea what they're talking about. It's these same people that claim to be open-minded and non-judgmental when in reality, they only accept the non-cliche things and completely stamp out anything close to normal. These people are just as fucking ignorant as the people who only accept the status quo. The punk scene is getting fucked up the ass with kids who think they know exactly what they're talking about. Sure, there are times when being ridiculously pompous helps get a message across, but this isn't it. Anti-Flag is amazing, whether they sound more like Ashlee Simpson or old Anti-Flag, I don't care, they've got amazing lyrical quiality and they know what they're saying before they say it. A-F is one of the last real bands out there.

    General Commentapparently there are too different versions of this song. but the difference is so small I barely noticed it. The first version I head says like these do "Fuck the world, kill 'em all" but there is a version Anti-Flag's site that says "Fuck the world, fuck 'em all."

    Weird. I like "Kill 'em all" better

    General CommentI liked "kill 'em all" better too, but I just bought the new CD and it looks like "fuck 'em all" won out.

    General CommentI'm not sure I've heard the one that says "kill 'em all", but I think "fuck 'em all" sounds better. "One trillion dollars could make the fat lady sing." Wow, that's great. =)

    General CommentThis song represents the end for the Anti-Flag we all used to love and know. They sold out, and this song shows that. It's so horrendously pop-punk! They sang about how much they hate capitalism, yet they sell out to SONY! I mean come on! Anti-Flag! Using the word 'Bling'! Absolute bollocks!
