SKIES OF FIRE

mama holds her baby close
but for naught
when they come for you
they come for all you've got
tears flowing down
the smell of death all around
seas of red 
the sky is on fire
time to make your funeral pier
liberate the people
fight the terrorist too
liberate the people
okay to kill a few
tears flowing down
bombs fall 
a deafening sound
unending crying 
for the dead and dying
soldiers so young
hide their fear and sadness
nowhere to hide
no escape from the madness
liberate the people
fight the terrorist too
liberate the people
might have to kill a few
we are america
we are always right
now be a man 
stand up and fight
you flaming liberals
is all they can say
we are america
don't like it don't stay
we are the military industrial complex
now get out of our way
sing your songs of freedom
but be careful what you say
