This century is gonna be American
Their decades deep in the planning
They got PR people and the whole tax pool and they mean it
They armed Iraq against Iran
For those eight long years they backed Saddam
One million people died on the battlefield

And they prepared the soldiers for a war
Over forty years in the making

Intelligence agents behind the scenes
Trying to destroying both countries by covertly
After the war they withheld all aid from the Iraqis
And the gates of heaven were opened wide
They put half a million children inside em'
Fighting for God in some delusional quest for salvation

They prepared the soldiers for a war
Over forty years in the making
Arab land and oil
America's for the taking

Rebuilding contracts at the end of a war
Paint a big fat loan for on the Trojan Horse
Attach the aid to profitable stipulations
And the gates of heaven are opened wide
They're putting millions of Third World people inside em'
Killing em softly with economic manipulation

And they're preparing the soldiers for a war
Over forty years in the making
The world's resources
America's for the taking
