Your oil's running out
So you're gunning down
Who's gonna challenge you
Alaska's calling oh
Iraq and Taliban
Who's gonna stop, stop you?

Pick up my cell phone
I'm in a war zone
target of everyone
I wanna have kids
Could I leave a lesson
and is my generation done, done, done?

Chorus:
Why do you want this world to drown along with you
Red, Gold, and Green you wanna fade to Red, White and Blue
Why do you want this world to drown along with you
These Stars and Stripes are yours to love, but it's nothing now

Talking keep talking cus'
Make us all believe
You're know we're all so dumb
Tell us of allies
We're fighting side by side
I think I'm getting over
Pick any target, just try to spark it
You're the mass destruction
I'll do what you're saying
As long as you make me rich
Under my oh oh oh God's sun!

Chorus:
Why do you want this world to drown along with you?
Red, Gold, and Green you wanna fade to Red, White and Blue
Why do you want this world to drown along with you
These Stars and Stripes are yours to love, but it's nothing now

Bridge:
Just tell me why
OH WHY!
Just tell me why
OH WHY!

Talking keep talking cus
Make us all believe
You know we're not that dumb
Don't believe your allies
Don't believe your side by side
Don't believe that I'm that numb
Don't believe in targets
Don't believe in sparking
Don't believe that I'm that mass destruction
Don't believe a word you say
Don't believe that you can make
me one dollar rich in, in, in Jah Kingdom!



Chorus:
Why do you want this world to drown along with you
Red, Gold, and Green you wanna fade to Red, White and Blue
YES YOU DO!! WHY DO YOU WANT OUR WORLD TO DROWN ALL ALONG, ALL ALONG, ALL ALONG WITH YOU
THESE STARS AND STRIPES ARE YOURS TO LOVE, BUT IT'S NOTHING NOW, JUST TELL ME WHY!!!

    General CommentI couldn't find these lyrics anywhere so I figured I'd give it a go! I know there are mistakes so feel free to send me your corrections...he just trails off or elongates certain notes that makes it damn hard to pick up what he is saying!


    and I think this song is obviously a criticism of the way our country has been run and acted over the last couple years and how the public was also very caught up in the being patriotic at all costs, but now with time passing we've come to realize what kind of mistakes we made under the veil of patriotism and how they've affected not only ourselves but the world!
