A pre-emptive strike to bring them down,
Destroy their homes and families.
The sound of gunshots deafen their young,
Why do you think they'll pick up a gun?

Driven to use the most extreme,
Taped plastique to their bodies - hear their screams.
Expect their thanks,
Expect their love,
Expect them to lay down their guns and jsut give up.

You say your war is justified,
We say you're wrong, not going to fight.
Refuse to kill - we will object,
Not our best interests to protect.
Ignore our pleas and protesting,
Kill thousands - senseless murdering.
In the name of democracy,
A tyrany to set you free.

Call in the air strikes,
Roll in the tanks,
Control the oil wells, fill the banks.
The saddest thing is that we see,
The lies,
The hate,
Worse - your hypocrisy.

You bombed their homes to set them free,
You starved them all to set them free,
Send in the troops to set them free,
You killed them all to set then free.
Now who's left to see,
The broken buildings, orphaned children,
Smoking gun held in the bloodied hands of politicians?
