Importing oil, exporting blood
We'll take their barrels of oil by the barrel of a gun
Importing capital, exporting death
We'll keep dropping our bombs until there's none of them left
We don't need actual evidence to seal a nation's fate
Just the promise of profit that their resources create
Unleashing our forces to preserve the American dream
By tapping their oil reserves to run our machines

We rule this world, we answer to no one
We've used the U.N. in the past to legitimize our crimes
But if they won't stand with us now, then fuck them
We are the most powerful empire this world has ever seen
And we'll have you either on your knees or under our heel
We'll force you to disarm while our finger's on the button
To continue our reign as the world's biggest gluttons

War propaganda plagues our country
American perception is not reality
Our leaders have a war mentality
We're living in a war mentality

We feed on fear, we prey on weakness
We drop bombs on people in the name of freedom
We shower civilians with shells of depleted uranium
We want you disarmed so you can't resist us
When we liberate your land for American interests
The companies anxiously await their sound investment

War propaganda plagues our country
American perception is not reality
Our leaders have a war mentality
We're living in a war mentality

We devour it all, we're the global cannibal
With the Brits by our side we'll bomb them back into the Stone Age
To punish them for how uncivilized they are
Our superiority and first-world arrogance
Entitle us to the double standards
Elevating ourselves above criticism and consequence
And justifying anticipatory self defense

We see through your lies, you can stand on your own
We're not with the terrorists
We're not with you and we're not alone
Youre spilling blood to make oilmen richer
And redeem daddy for his miserable failure
But the people you're killing have a right to exist
We can't let it come to this

War propaganda plagues our country
American perception is not reality
Our leaders have a war mentality
We're living in a war mentality
