Better Them Than Us

We moved in on the village in the hour before sunrise.

Then we started killing when the order came to fire.

Men, women, and children -- we left no one alive

but someone's got to lose

and lay down in the dust.

Better them than us.

You follow your orders. You do what you're told.

You don't question your leader -- you don't know what he knows.

Where he points his finger you point your gun and go

because someone's got to win

and keep the upper hand.

Better us than them.

The people that we're killing are not the same as you and me.

They have a strange religion and a strange way that they speak

so it's only fitting that they fall beneath our feet

because someone's got to lose

and lay down in the dust.

Better them than us

and someone's got to win

and keep the upper hand.

Better us than them.

Salute the Christian soldiers forever marching on,

marching in a column two thousand years strong,

still killing for Jesus and the sign of the cross

but someone's got to win

and keep the upper hand.

Better us than them

and someone's got to lose

and lay down in the dust.

Better them than us.
