“Iraq” is destined to be a true rallying cry during these difficult political times. TIMZ’s background allows him to give a unique perspective of the war. “My parents are from Iraq but I was born in the United States. I feel like I’m able to connect to both sides of this war a little more than the average person. That’s why I wrote the song the way I did; the first verse is written from the perspective of an Iraqi while the second verse is written from the perspective of an American. The third verse is a history lesson!”
The Banner
Somehow someway someday
We gonna burn this bitch down for what they did in Abu Graib
Somebody somewhere, say something
I’ve tired myself out and I haven’t changed one thing
God it look like you aint watched in a while
And I dont even know when was the last time I smiled
They look and feel sorry for us, can you believe it?
The great Iraq, as if we need it
And look what they decide to give us
Blood from the world to fill up our rivers
And what we supposed to be thankful?
You kill my family and I should say thank you?
No thanks you got your tanks, I got my God bring it on [bring it]
It sounds pretty you could sing along
Cause the sound of gunfire is my favorite song[Sing it]

There is a war going on outside
No birds around here just bullets that fly
There is a war going on outside
There is death everywhere but I feel so alive

[Ah,Ah I feel so alive]
Dear Mr.George Bush
Why do you insist to make a fool of us?
For over two hundred years
We stood for what's good, now we despised by our peers
This isn't ain't gonna last for long
They wish us dead George,yo they wish us gone
And what do you do
But add fuel to the fire and send in more troops
Oh the troops, God save the troops
It wasnt their war their lies their fault
America the beautiful, what did they do to you
They used you it’s so indisputable
And I aint talking no Democrat or Republican
I talk for myself an Iraqi-American
George I dont really know who set you
But dont let karma come get you [ou]

There is a war going on outside
No birds around here just bullets that fly
There is a war going on outside
There is death everywhere but I feel so alive

[Ah,Ah I feel so alive]
Yall must have missed the facts
Let me straighten yall up on the twisted facts
[Did you know] The Garden of Eden was Iraq
[Did you know] God made Adam and Eve in Iraq
[Did you know] Life made it first start in Iraq
[Did you know] Noah went and built the ark in Iraq
[Did you know] Abraham was born in Iraq
[Did you know] The three wise men are from Iraq
[Did you know] Math was first taught in Iraq
[Did you know] Astrology, language, law Iraq
Oh did you know there is oil in Iraq?
Foreign blood in the soil in Iraq?
No you know there is terrorists in Iraq
Thugs who kill Americans in Iraq
Yall say who needs Iraq
But everybody in the world bleeds Iraq

There is a war going on outside
No birds around here just bullets that fly
There is a war going on outside
There is death everywhere but I feel so alive

[Ah,Ah I feel so alive]
Yeah there’s a war goin on outside man
Don’t believe just what’s going on, on your TV and radio
Look outside your window
Look with your own eyes
It aint over man
It aint over
Theyr still dying every single day
There’s still bombs every day
It aint over
