Just like the children's sandpit
Just like the wild wild west
At random choose a target
It's not enough to be second best

So now you wanna fight them
The weaker one is always wrong
Yeah now you wanna fight them
A real man's gotta show the world he's strong

Stuck up, abuse of powers
It's a part of a leader's role
"We only take what's ours"
A slick line to stay in control
Hate breeds more hate it's easy to understand
To retaliate and to be a true macho man
goes hand in hand

So show the world you're strong
The weaker one is wrong
And I know it won't take long
Until they're dead and gone

    General CommentYeah, I totally agree with Millencolin. I've never heard a so political song by them, it's a positive experience! By the way, it's really true what they wanna say, no one of the Afghan civilian deserved to die by an american hand! Sad what happend at September the 11th, but the world isn't "happy-happy-beauty-flower" like the Americans think. All that "out World Police America is Number one" and this "Proud to be an American"-shit is going on my nerves. You must know, I'm not Anti-USA, but I think this way, besides I also hate to be a German guy... all the politician with their "blah blah blah", but nothing happens.

    Well... thats what I think, I hope you don't get it wrong. And always remember: "Hate breeds more hate it's easy to understand"...

    General CommentI agree with u vid freeze, totally....I think that millencolin wanted americans to realize that what s happening to them is just what they deserved coz of all those things USA did to arabs countries. I am canadian not american so I see USA from a different angle than americans themselves.
