So tell me about injustice and hate Shouting stop censorship and the KKK How America sells lies and blood for oil Killing Muslims solely to colonize their soil Did you forget who begot who About Gold, God, Glory and slavery too Kind of like Hitler exterminating the Jews The London Air Raids and the apathy that pacifies you So tell me about revolution and that propaganda you bleed Che Guevara and equality of need Why is it starving Cubans are swimming for our shore The Baltic Republics are free and the Gulags no more So tell me about freedom at your friendly neighborhood pub Drawing gas masks and Swastikas on your overflowing mug How burning our flag suits you just fine While an Iraqi woman is shot for speaking her mind So the next time you scream about injustice and hate Extol revolution and your anarchist state Remember to ask the Kuwaitis about capitalists on foreign soil And who really spilt their blood for the price of their oil
