"Contractor" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
Stomping lines in international sand
Feeding blood drinking habits of the Elephant Man
Quench his thirst, when black water rises
He takes you around toward the burning horizon

Yeah, motherfucker, lets take a ride
We're rollin' round irate, someone has got to die
Trick or Treat, in dying need
So roll the dice as we leave
Cause it's 8 miles of pure luck with warm bags of

Guaran-fucking-teed
Someone will bleed
Guaran-fucking-teed
Someone will bleed

Privatize to conceal all the lies
Big Business is booming, like its the fourth of July
No need for all the formalities, Jump the kangaroo corpse
And flank beneath the trees

Yeah, motherfucker, lets take a ride
Running red lights in a green zone
Someone has got to die
(Pity me?) there's nothing here to see
So throw the dice for me please, and let's
Store the pint of blood to cash in to refund

Guaran-fucking-teed
Just sign the deed
Guaran-fucking-teed
Someone will bleed

Someone has got to die
Ours is not to reason why
Ours is but to do if the pay rate's right
Black liquid assets, fuck the Mujahideen
Paint their picket fences Red with the American dream

Lay your heavy hammer down
Get the job done right
Jacked up, and cocked in, to a firefight
Covert reactions said you never saw me
A glass parking lot in the American Dream
Yeah

They all die
Fucking Murder

Guaran-fucking-teed, Someone will bleed.
Lay your heavy hammer down,
Get the job done right.
Jacked up, and cocked in, to a firefight.
Covert reactions said you never saw me.
A glass parking lot in the American Dream.

    General CommentThis is wrong.

    Mark Morton himself gave me the lyrics, they're as follows:

    Chopping lines in international sand
    Feeding blood junky habits of the elephant man
    Quenching his thirst with black water rising
    Executive outcomes on a burning horizon

    Yeah motherfucker let's take a ride
    We're rolling route irish someone has got to die
    Trick or treat it's IEDs
    So roll the dice as we leave
    'Cause it's 8 miles of pure luck with more bang for Sam's buck

    Guaran-fucking-teed
    Someone will bleed
    Guaran-fucking-teed
    Someone will bleed

    Privatize to conceal all the lies
    And big business is boomin' like its the 4th of July
    No need for all the formalities
    Jump the kangaroo courts and plant the lynching trees

    Yeah motherfucker let's take a ride
    Running red lights into a green zone someone has got to die
    Hidden Aegis Nothing here to see
    So load the dice for me please
    And let's snort the bottom line crude cashed into refined

    Guaran-fucking-teed
    Just sign the deed
    Guaran-fucking-teed
    Someone will bleed

    Someone has got to die
    Ours is not to reason why
    Ours is but to do if the pay rate's right
    Black liquid assets fuck the mujahideen
    Paint their picket fences red with the American dream

    Lay the hammer-hammer down get the job done right
    Jacked up and clocked in into a firefight
    Covert reactions and ya never saw me
    A glass parking lot in the American dream
    Yeah

    They all die
    Oh, fucking murder

    Guaran-fucking-teed
    Someone will bleed
    Guaran-fucking-teed

    Oh, lay the hammer-hammer down get the job done right
    Jacked up and clocked in into a firefight
    Covert reactions and ya never saw me
    A glass parking lot in the American dream

    My Interpretationreborninapathy is correct, those lyrics are wrong and he has the right ones, and this song is definitly about blackwater and other private military contracting companies and the crimes they commit

    General Commentthis song is so amazing. its def. my favorite off the new album. I love the lines "black liquid assets fuck the mujahideen, paint their picket fences red with the american dream." so fuckin sick.

    pretty simple message. Contractors in Iraq dont give a shit about harming civs or anything else as long as they still fulfill their contract and get paid.

    General CommentThis song is definitely about the Blackwater private army that the U.S. government contracted out to provide "security" in Iraq. The lines "black liquid" and "black water rising" indicate this to me. There are also references to at least one of the several infamous incidents in which Blackwater contractors fired upon civilians and killed them. Read about Blackwater online and I think you'll see why Randy sounds so pissed.
