They say the new world order is just God's master plan
But if the blueprint calls for some to stave
don't blame God's right hand man
Because the president is holy
and the president is pious
And hallelujah he's a good old boy
hosanna in the highest

Well plan is written in God's hands
so only Bush can read it
and it calls for battle in gods name
and it calls for bush to lead it
and the blueprint calls to drill for oil
and to exterminate the land
and if you can't hear God's calling
then you're probably from France

Because the USA is holy
and the USA is pious
And hallelujah God is on side
hosanna in the highest

God is great God is good
and let us thank God for our food
We may well have more than we need
and God may well have more mouths to feed

But God is great God is good
and someday soon he'll feed you too
cause once we have our yachts and crowns
God planned some food to trickle down

So just keep those thoughts holy
and be patient and be pious
And hallelujah you gotta encourage those prayers
hosanna in the highest

And i thank God for a God so mild
To spare the rod and spoil the child
To signing my check for boys and girls
to buy up the entire world

So don't think it's rude
if we intrude
God in heaven
ordained us to

So you best improve that attitude
Step aside we have work to do

And thanks for keeping things in good shape
so that we could take our place
And hallelujah aint God great
hosanna in the highest

    My InterpretationThis song is written from an entirely sarcastic standpoint. In this song, they're talking about how the U.S. Government (represented by Bush) convince the general populous that war is the best thing we can do for the world... when it's obviously not. They're saying the government is getting rich while others suffer "once we've got our yachts and crowns, God plans some food to trickle down"

    Basically, they're saying the Government is using religion to turn people against each other, which has happened throughout all of American history. They do this by convincing everyone that it's our religious duties to go to war, convert the world, and take all their resources while we do so.

    I've also submitted several corrections to the lyrics

    General CommentIs this an anti-Bush song disguised as a pro-Bush song? Or is it actually a pro-Bush song?

    Or is it something completely different that I'm just totally missing?

    General CommentIf you had to label this pro or anti something, it would definitly be anti-religion. And even that isn't quite right. It seems to be saying that the ideals that let you sleep at night, are the same ones that cause "some to starve". It is definitly not Pro-bush, but its not anti-bush in the way that it's not a protest song. One interpretation that can be used in many of their songs is that you should think before just accepting things, such as religion and prayer in this case. "And you swallow without thinking" (lambs at the slaughter)

    General CommentFrom my understanding of the band and their ideas (and this could be totally wrong as I have never meet any of them) that they are a foalk-punk band. A genera that to my understanding is generally anti- capitalist in nature and very politically left.

    So having said that I dont believe that this is a spoof I do think the song is sending and anti-capitalist anti-Bush, and anti-religion message.
