We want peace without
Patriot missiles,
Blown to bits are civilian targets,
Parade! Laugh! Rejoice! Sing!
We are the victors of...nothing,
Spend more money on a war,
Your people starving, turned to whores,
Slaves of the chosen one paying millions for each bomb,

Country without a race ,
Formed from people you disgrace ,
White right conservative might ,
Killers of Kennedy's with no fright ,
The American way!

Freedom cried the marching man,
Flags ripped out of their black hands ,
Beaten! Slain! Tortured! Killed!
Their only mistake was being born here ,
Invade countries just for oil ,
Send your troops all down to boil ,
Iraq! Grenada! Nam and Chile!
Truman doctrine our own way ,

Country without a race ,
Formed from people you disgrace ,
White right conservative might ,
Killers of Kennedy's with no fright ,
The American way!

The Government here can suck my balls ,
Policing the world in overalls ,
Armed rebellion minority ,
Disrespected race, colored mind ,
Crazed loonies all walk the streets ,
Missing children on milk cartons ,
Mother selling child for crack ,
Mr. President check your back ,

Country without a race ,
Formed from people you disgrace,
White right conservative might ,
Killers of Kennedy's with no fright ,
The American way!
The American way!
The American way!
