Good Riddance – Winning The Hearts And Minds lyrics

When might makes right you want to bet
The u.s.a. is now a terrorist threat
Free elections another casualty
In the covert war on freedom and democracy

Spray paint (blood stained) walls fading light
The death squads are coming to your town tonight
M-16 to your head lie through your teeth
Or you might end up dead

Those stubborn peasants remain opposed
To the western puppet that we've imposed
Not to worry they'll see it our way
The c.i.a. trained death squads will crush the coup
Within a day

Hahahahaha laugh it away
You're making friends with the u.s.a.
A clear conscience when the price is right
After all who needs human rights?
Police state now you rule by fear
To stabilize this hemisphere for what?
