Poverty in their kitchens
Held hostage by oil for food
Yet their own plates are full off the fat of their lands
There's no blood on their hands, right Kojo?

They promised to tell the truth
Without leaving a fingerprint
They will lose the UN one way or another
The victim, I fear will be us, sisters and brothers

The UN is right, you can't be any more "un"
Than you are right now, the UN is undone
Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun
The threat is real, the Locust King has come

Don’t tell me the truth
I don't like what they've done
It’s payback time
In the United Abominations

A grave and gathering danger
The decision to attack
Based on secret intelligence it'll take years
I fear to undo the failings in Iraq

You may bury the bodies
But you can't bury the crimes
Only fools stand up and really lay down their arms
No, not me, not when death lasts forever

The UN is right, you can't be any more "un"
Than you are right now, the UN is undone
Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun
The threat is real, the Locust King has come

Don’t tell me the truth
I don't like what they've done
It’s payback time

The UN is right, you can't be any more "un"
Than you are right now, the UN is undone
Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun
The threat is real, the Locust King has come

The UN is right, you can't be any more "un"
Than you are right now, the UN is undone
Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun
The threat is real, the Locust King has come

Don’t tell me the truth
I don't like what they've done
It’s payback time
In the United Abominations
