"Potshot Heard Around The World" as written by and Bay Ray Jello Biafra....
Hey! yo! we're the united states marines we know you've all been
Killing each other for at least two thousand years but we're here now
To protect the family of christian heroin warlords most friendly to the
West so you knock off this fighting or we'll tell mom ever notice news
Is staged like tv wrestling shows with reagans and khaddafis cast as
Cartoon villains and heroes or those wildlife, documentaries, where a
Lion from a zoo kills a deer tied down ahead of time at the perfect
Camera angle when lemmings balk at dying for disney they're just
Hurled off the cliff, we are gathered here today to take photos of the
President pretending to mourn these brave young me who came home
From beirut gift wrapped in body bags, a truck bomb blew them to bits
We knew they were sitting ducks we sacrificed 'em, aztec style so we
Could use their dead meat to cook up war fever back home so make
Sure you take lots of pictures and slant your news our way just like in
Wild kingdom we first tied down the prey we want people boiling for
Revenge in their living rooms so we can go play shoot em up
Anywhere we choose and our backers can cash in without the public
Asking questions
