The Lyrics

I've Seen Islamic Revolutions

I've seen Islamic revolutions, well you know
Bush's bombs can't change the world
The politics of retribution swell, you know
Bush's bombs can't change the world

'Cause when you're talkin' 'bout religion
All the fanatics are not gonna sit and wait

And the longer we remain
We'll find
That the Bush plan is insane
And blind
And the harvest will be pain
All kinds

The body bags are still arrivin' from hell, you know
Our PFC's are sitting ducks
(Shootin' new grunts, Ow they're shootin' new grunts)
It shouldn't be all that surprisin', 'cause you know
This nation-building really sucks

We're tryin' to civilize people with minds that hate
And all I can tell you is brother, it's not Kuwait

In those Bradley APV's
Sit tight
Armor-plated SUV's
All night
Getting tired of MRE's
That bite

No weapons causing mass destruction, where'd they go
Like Bin Laden and Hussein
('Scaped the dragnet, How'd they 'scape the dragnet)
At least we'll get the oil production, feel the flow
Through Al Basrah, past Bahrain

There's one thing American people can understand
It's what's in the pocketbook of every drivin' man

All we want is gasoline
Real cheap
For our leaf-blowing machines
And Jeeps
And Iraq is our latrine
For keeps

We've got to build the institutions, well, who knows
Which crazy faction can we trust
(Not Chalabi, not Ahmed Chalabi)
The CIA's got information, and it shows
This war could be a boom and bust

'Cause if you're importing Americatocracy
I don't think you're speakin' the language of Nasari-

They'll be blowin' up Marines
All right
As we'll see on TV screens
War is over? In your dreams!
That's right!

That's right!
