Go shoot your M-16
Go shoot your M-16
Go shoot your M-16
I'm not going to live your American Dream!

"Army life is right for me
Kill to save democracy
Got a rebel in my sights
Money's worth more than his life."
So kill... it's fun!

Shoot him!
You're better than him
Shoot him!
In the eye
Shoot him!
It gives you a thrill
Just like as a kid only now it's for real!

"Army life is right for me
Kill to save democracy
Got a rebel in my sights
Money's worth more than his life."
So kill... it's fun!

    General Commentwho is bill? this song is about a few things i beleive. one being arrogance, the part about shoot him you're better than him is the way a lot of people act and that isn't just with military stuff. another part is about how glorified the army is. army life is right for me kill to save democracy is kind of how people view some things, they think they have to kill others because it's the right thing to do and that's why it's the "american dream"
