Here come the 757's.

If you don't ask why then you deserve to die
just like the millions that are ground under foot
by the powers-that-be and their policies
and a society that let's their bosses do as they please
and never asks "why?" even as the death tolls rise
until some 757's start to fall from the sky
and some more innocent die
and STILL we don't ask "why?"
instead we fall in line
and we drink up the Kool-Aid

If they shot Kennedy just imagine what they'll do to you or me,
but you STILL believe...

So burn then coward,
but don't you dare pray.
Burn then,
for what's been done in your name.
So fucking burn then.
You had your chance:
now it's time to die.
Burn then.
You drank the Kool-Aid, fool,
so die.

If you don't ask why then you deserve to die;
(BTW) that little sticker of a flag on your car means nothing.
For the terror you've allowed in your name,
when the planes fall again,
your prayers will mean nothing.

If they shot Kennedy just imagine what they'll do to you and me,
but you still believe all their lies, HA!
That sticker of a flag on your car means nothing
and when the sky falls again
your prayers will mean nothing.

So burn then coward,
but don't you dare pray.
Burn then,
for what's been done in your name.
So fucking burn then.
You had your chance:
now it's time to die.
Burn then.
You drank the Kool-Aid, fool,
so die.
Die then, sucker,
but don't you pray.
Die then, fool, and burn for your shame.
So fucking burn then.
You had your chance:
now it's time to die.
Burn then.
You drank the Kool-Aid, fool,
so die.

Drink up. Die.

The hour's late and we're so far astray
but we refuse to see that the end of the party is near.
And all that hatred and rage we've made
is coming at us just like a jet plane.

    General CommentYet another song about Americans, lol. Gotta love them Boston Boys! This one is moreso directed towards all those who never question authority. Not rebelling, but merely asking "why?". The Kool-Aid is metephoracle (like suicide cults, drunk the kool aid and u die for the cause of the cult), so in a way "drinking the Kool-Aid" is their way of saying u didn't question, you don't care why they are doin this, so you don't really deserve to live the life u really don't care about if your not concerned with who is running it and why they do the things they do.

    General CommentClocher, yes, I agree.
    Also, the suicide cult being talked about is Jonestown. I think it is in Uraguay. Somewhere in South America. This cult leader made everyone believe he was Jesus, then told them all to drink Kool-Aid with cyanide in it.
