A billionaire chatting with his friends
They've gotta stop and laugh
"We've really got those suckers fooled,
We've gotta 'em trained like rats!"
The riches plot, control your thoughts, to make you blame yourself
"The rich are rich because they're smarter than me.."
You're taught this is right, that it's your fault
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
They throw a war like a party saying,
"It's for a moral cause.."
Telling you if you're a patriot that
"YOU BETTER DO WHAT YOU'RE TOLD!"
You burn a flag, you're gonna hang,
Brainwashed nationalism makes you a tool
They're getting rich by selling weapons to both countries,
You never think to question what you're told!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
They're gonna give you nothing
They want to take way the little they call something
You know you're being used still you play along
If you're not complacent,
You're doing something wrong
One day they'll push to far
That marks the beginning of their end
We'll being them crashing down until they're all dead
They're all dead, they're all dead!
The time is growing near..
Put the trigger to the man...
Ok, let's go, kill 'em!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!

    General Commentwe set up sadaam hussein to fight the iranians, who use our weapons from iran-contra. we support an authoritarian regime in Saudi Arabia since they have oil and support our bases. We protect Kuwait since it has oil, but we let tibet and rwanda fall to its own devices... nations are always led by an elite, even our so called democracy... we are led by the corporations, the rich, who use social darwinism and tell us to be content to be their pawns

    General CommentI don't like this song as much as a lot of Anti-Flag's other songs, because it's contradictory. This was back when they were still finding their musical voice. Later on they became really big peace activists and now you'd never hear them writing a song called "Kill The Rich." This song is just reinforcement for anyone who claims that Anti-Flag is a violent band with no redeeming qualities. Give me 9/11 For Peace over this song any day.

    General CommentA fuckin dope song by a killer band. It has a really good point. No one needs to be super rich. Give some of your billions to a fucking charity eh. Just cuz you have money doesn't mean that you should control others.

    General Commentanti-flag is one of the very few bands that dont talk about violence that still punk tho, most of bands just end up sounding more like hippies with their unity and peace bullshit

    General Commentthis is just a very agressive one. i like it because its pretty
    straightforward. back from the anti-flag days when they made lots of those and justin was always screaming and groaning and always hard to understand. i dont think its better or worse than their new stuff. just diffrent. gives me another feeling. like You´ll scream tonight, fuck the pope, meet your master, i´m having a good day and the like

    General CommentI don't think they meant "Kill the rich" literally, but I think they used it in a figurative sense meaning to distribute the wealth in a more fair way. Therefore "killing the rich", meaning re-establishing social classes to not cater to the happiness of the few, lucky rich.
