Canzone tratta dalla compilation "Rock Against Bush, Vol. 1", Fat Wreck Chords Records, 2004.

"The School Of Assassins" è la famigerata "Escuela de las Americas", scuola di addestramento con sede prima a Panama, fino al 1984, e poi presso la base militare statunitense di Fort Benning, Georgia.
La "SOA" ha addestrato decine di migliaia di militari e poliziotti di svariati paesi dell'America Latina. I nomi di molti allievi sono ancora oggi tristemente famosi: Gen. Galtieri, presidente della sanguinaria Giunta militare argentina e fautore della guerra delle Falklands/Malvinas; Manuel Antonio Noriega, il narcodittatore panamense rimosso dal suo padrone Bush senior dopo l'invasione staunitense di Panama del 1989; il dittatore boliviano gen. Hugo Banzer; Roberto D'Aubuisson, capo degli squadroni della morte salvadoregni e mandante dell'assassinio di Mons. Romero; gen. Héctor Gramajo, uno dei responsabili del genocidio degli indios guatemaltechi negli anni '80; gen. Guillermo Rodríguez, golpista ecuadoregno; Vladimiro Montesinos, braccio destro dell'ex presidente peruviano Fujimori e responsabile dei massacri indiscriminati durante la repressione dei movimenti di guerriglia Sendero Luminoso e Tupac Amaru (MRTA) negli anni '80 e '90, nonchè ispiratore e fondatore del famigerato squadrone della morte "Grupo Colina"...

Has your life got you down? Are you feeling lost and blue?
I’m thinking maybe a career change is the best answer for you
You’ve never lived, never known true romance
Till you been taught the steps to the death dance
(Fort) Benning, Georgia, is gonna teach you how to move!

Take our rights back! Stand up for Liberty!
This is the era when we give the world a better way
Take our rights back! Shut down the SOA!
This is the era when we give the world a better way

Torture, rape, murder and death are all waiting for you
Democracy subversion well they got that covered too
The grad names on their walls, most infamous of all dictators/coup learders
Learn well someday you maybe ranked with these awesome k-k-k-k-killers!

Take our rights back! Stand up for Liberty!
This is the era when we give the world a better way
Take our rights back! Shut down the SOA!
This is the era when we give the world a better way

Take our rights back! Stand up for Liberty!
This is the era when we give the world a better way
Take our rights back! Shut down the SOA!
The setting son can burn a brilliant vibrant flame

[Speech]

They’re selling war as peace
STRIKE!
Do we need it in our name
STRIKE! STRIKE BACK!
Tax dollars from the war machine
STRIKE!
The people can’t leave me in chains
STRIKE! STRIKE BACK!

[Speech]
AHHHHH!

Take our rights back! Stand up for Liberty!
This is the era when we give the world a better way
Take our rights back! Shut down the SOA!
The setting son can burn a brilliant vibrant flame

Vibrant flame
