Within striking distance from ground zero, sits a smoldering international cauldron, the "United Abomination" as it were.

Formed to prevent wars, it froze in the face of disaster and stood silent while terrorization took hostage the world.
In the mire of hipocrisy, the UN ignores sex crimes by it's blue helmets and enables terrorism so in the end it's failed.

And the UN is where our so called friends get to stab us in the back, and we pay 22% of thier tab to host our enemies here at home.
Ambassadors from countries otherwise known as a catastrophie, enjoy diplomatic immunity
Living in mannhattan while their children are turned into prostitutes.

It's a complete and utter discrace, a blot on the face of humanity and they get away with it?

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, but
They will lose the U.N. one way or another
The victim, I fear will be us, sisters and brothers

The U.N. is right; you can't be any more "un"
Than you are right now, the U.N. 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
Just give me ammo for 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 U.N. is right; you can't be any more "un"
Than you are right now, the U.N. 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
Just give me ammo for the United Abominations

"The U.N. writes resolution after resolution and has become irrelevant through inaction and totalitarian paralysis,"
"Order, Order!"
"Ha! There is no such thing as order"
"Larry, it's true, reports confirm today that the United Nations has officially closed it's doors forever,"
"Well, I just don't see what all the fuss is, because they don't do anything anyway, do they?"

The U.N. is right; you can't be any more "un"
Than you are right now, the U.N. 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
Just give me ammo for the United Abominations

NATO invaded Yugoslavia to end ethnic cleansing, there was no U.N.
The U.S. invaded Afghanistan after 9/11, there was no U.N.
Saddam Hussein violated 17 U.N. resolutions; The U.N. was asked to join the war in Iraq. The U.S. invaded, Ha! there was no U.N.
Libya bombed a discotheque in Berlin killing Americans, there was no U.N.
Iran funds any terrorist organization it can, and attacked the U.S. in the seventies, there was no stinking U.N.
Facing War without end, looking into the future, there was no more U.N.

    Dave nails it. The un (spelling intended) is nothing but a collection of power grubbing maggots who support tyrants, despots, dictators and turn a blind eye to the murder, oppression and slavery of their people. It's a joke. Bunch of socialist bastards.

    "please, please let someone help you with the facts. "

    --> please let me help you with the facts. The lyrics are talking about recent events, of course they know how they rose to power in the first place, but that's past and finished, this song only talks about the decisions that followed. Check your facts before saying nonsense.

    This song touches on the failings of the united nations, a force that was initially formed in the hopes of world peace. The u. N. Has become infamous for countless reports of corruption, misappropriation of funds and cowardice in the face of war.

    There is a bit of a Typo it really is "It's Payback Time At The United Abominations" not just give me ammo for the united abominations the person who put these up though well meaning got the lyrics wrong i know cause i listen with stereo headphones so swap out "Give Me Ammo For The United Abominations" with "It's Payback Time For The United Abominations".

    Okay, it's a nice song, and they are right about the un reacting too slow (right now, in syria! ) but the last verse... It's the united nations, not the 'everybody helps if the us is overconfident agian club'
