Behind Enemy Lines – What Did We Expect? lyrics

For over fifty years this country has submerged the world into shit
And now that we've been attacked, we're full of disbelief and rage
But how can we possibly be surprised when all of these years
We've been just fucking asking for it
What did we expect when we manipulate the world economy?
What did we expect when we intimidate with our war technology?
What did we expect when we train terrorists if it's in our interests?
What did we expect when we install puppet dictators to safeguard our investments?
Who's really to blame for this senseless slaughter?
This country usually gets away with murder
And now that it's come back to haunt us how do we react?
Our leaders try to convince us that this was an unprovoked attack
But a day doesn't go by when we don't do the same
This country's foreign policy is just as much to blame
As those who have left the thousands of dead
By following the example of violence that America 's led
What did we expect when our sanctions result in starving millions?
What did we expect when we anger the world by bombing civilians?
What did we expect when we police the world with our armed forces?
What did we expect when we strip the world of it's natural resources
Who's really to blame for this senseless slaughter?
This country usually gets away with murder
And now that it's come back to haunt us how do we react?
Our leaders try to convince us that this was an unprovoked attack
But a day doesn't go by when we don't do the same
This country's foreign policy is just as much to blame
As those who have left the thousands of dead
By following the example of violence that America 's led
What did we expect when we tread on more foreign soil than any other armies?
What did we expect when we exploit slave labor in third world countries?
What did we expect when we monopolize the world market with our corporations?
What did we expect when our rich own more than most of the world's population
