New American Century Part 1

You should salute the leader now

and show respect for him as he

marches the soldiers to a country off to the east

and when he's talking about war

he's really talking about peace

or so he says and he wants us to believe.

But before a thousand years of peace can begin

we've got to fight and kill a whole lot of them.

Oh well, welcome to the new American century

where they're killing you and they tell you not to worry.

We can't retreat into defeat

and we should never cut and run

and don't you think that you'd look good holding a gun?

We've got to fight them over there

or else we'll have to fight them here.

Just say this over and over until you get it clear.

But before a thousand years of peace can begin

we've got to fight and kill a whole lot of them.

Oh well, welcome to the new American century

where they're killing you and they tell you not to worry.

He says there's only two sides, which side are you on?

Our side it the right side, their side is all wrong

and so we've got to keep on killing until most of them are gone.

Oh well, welcome to the new American century

where they're killing you and they tell you not to worry.
