where I turn and look the drums of war are pounding,
time I open my ears the calls for war are sounding.
say there’s no time to think, to question why we’re going,
your finger in the air to see which way the wind is blowing.
who make a plea for peace are labeled unpatriotic,
who say there is another way are derided as idiotic.
bumper stickers ask the question ‘what would Jesus do?’
time to check the Book Iraq - America’s coming after you.
let’s go to war against Iraq,
could go wrong,
we occupy the country,
people are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights,
guess life, liberty and happiness for Iraqis get lost with the fight.
no question the whore of Babylon has committed many sins,
when we use evil to fight against evil, evil is the only one who wins.
heard a wise man once say that "Babylon system is the vampire, "
where I stand it looks like America is the new Roman Empire.
empire was great and powerful, but like all it eventually fell,
we say ‘God Bless America’, does that keep us from going to hell?
let’s put troops on the ground,
oil rig in Iraq’s front lawn,
the gas is flowing,
says that he grants every nation its allotted time under the sun,
we think we're right only because we’re America, then our time is surely done.
makes this country great is not the fact that we’ve got the biggest stick,
being true to our founding fathers’ vision that makes the clock still tick.
running out of time, soon we won’t be able to turn back the clock,
worry this could never start World War III, we’re just invading Iraq.
we strike first, every other nation can justify their own desire,
can then tell the story of how we set the world on fire.
worry it’s not Armageddon,
Halliburton and Chevron,
we worship Mammon,
said blessed are the peacemakers for they are the children of God,
then does America’s Commander-in-Chief strike first with the rod?
shall not fight against nation, neither shall they learn war any more,
will happen one day, but first must the son settle the father’s score?
not to late to say no,
give peace a chance,
to me America,
is our last dance.
the Great has fallen, has fallen.
