There's soldiers in my city
Occupying me
Using fear and violence to enforce
The Wolfowitz decrees
Yes there are, yes there are
And they're stealing our resources
At the barrel of a gun
Just like the British did
Back in 1921
Yes they are, yes they are

They say they're gonna liberate my land...
Over my dead body

Well they picked their local crony
To bring the bankers in
Sold the oil and the water
To Western corporations
Yes he did, yes he did
World Bank/IMF
Economic scam
Strangling Iraq
In some global power plan
Yes they are, yes they are

They say they're gonna liberate my land...
Over my dead body

Now I was once a soldier
Drafted by Saddam
Fighting in an unjust war
Against the people of Iran
Yes I was, yes I was
And so I know just what it's like
To be stuck on the other side
But that don't change my right
To fight for what is mine
No it don't, no it don't

They say they're gonna liberate my land...
Over my dead body

So when they speak of "liberation"
We know just what it means
It means a puppet a government
That gives them gasoline
Yes it does, yes it does
So I say it won't come easy
'Cause I've still got my gun
I grew up in a war
But I won't let my son
No I won't, no I won't

They say they're gonna liberate my land...
Over my dead body
