What goes around comes around
That's a time-tested fact
That's true in Afghanistan
And it's true in Iraq
You may have threw the first fist
But will you throw the last?
‘Cause you shot first
Now they're shooting back

What goes around comes around
‘Cause you propped up Saddam
Now it's U.S. soldiers getting hit with improvised bombs
It's not the Baathists, not Al Qaida
It's working people's hands
Planting the seeds of your destruction

What goes around comes around
A time-tested fact
That was true in Afghanistan
And that's true in Iraq
You may have threw the first fist
But will you throw the last?
‘Cause you shot first
Now they're shooting back

What goes around comes around
‘Cause you prowled from pole to pole
Destroying everything you touched
For labor, land and gold
In the Santa Maria or the Enola Gay
You got rich because other people paid

What goes around comes around
‘Cause you can't erase your past
You made your wealth from Slavery
It's still socially intact
But builders can break down everything they've built
And you can rest assured that one day they will

What goes around comes around
A time-tested fact
That's true in Afghanistan
And that's true in Iraq
You may have threw the first fist
But will you throw the last? ‘Cause you shot first
Now they're shooting back

What goes around comes around
And it stings when it hits
And your in too deep
To not sink with the ship
Ain't no excuses to pardon you
This world is what you've made it
Your bred this hate now gonna have to face it

What goes around comes around
In such a burst of time
Now the world you tried to conquer
Is creeping up behind
As Mussolini learned before
You reap what you sow
You will suffer the fate you've imposed
