Excuse: The Gulf War II. Who thought it could be allowed to happen again?
So where exactly are all the WMDs?
But the world is a safer place, of course...
There's children drooping dead just to keep me free
but I'm not convinced that it's really for me
and I know now there's accumulation to protect
yes I know now why you are easily erect
yes I know now that you like to keep it in the family..

Lying crooked smile Saddam has gotta go'
well it must be true 'cos the TV told me so now
can't you smell a rat in a suit?
and I know we don't ask questions only shoot
don't you know now -that there's more than just your head in the sand
(YES THERE'S OIL)

Children charged guilty for their innocence
the rule of law is void because we hate their governments
and I know now ad machines run the war campaign
Yes I know now that's how you paint them all the same
and don't you know now another product packaged purchased and disposed
(PROFITABLE TOO)

Spit your spears of illegitimacy
Whenever there's talk of sovereignty
So this is the End of History(1)
And this is how to spread democracy..

Blown-out brains and asphyxiation
Omitted from the news' sanitisation
Chalk another victim to desensitisation
The greatest threat to our world leaders is their own population
