The Lyrics

The first part of this song refers to the Iran-Iraq war, and the scandal our government was involved in. The second part of this song refers to the rise of Osama in Afghanistan against the Soviets (partially due to the CIA's help), and it hints at our involvement in Iraq now. For the purpose of this song, Saddam is pronounced in the Texan way, which rhymes with "ham." Mujadeen is a common misspelling of mujihadeen, so I decided to throw that in near the end.
Iran's stake... was the contract
On the wrong track
There's no turning back
The turning point... was never clear
Till the Shia... were not sincere
The holidays... with gun flak
The contract... for Iraq

The warring plans
Aimed at Iran
Oil from the wells
After all
The warring man
Was named Saddam
Oil from the wells
After all

It's a repetitive world
War machine mounts for oil accounts

The graft... from the law
Made us worry... that he'd stall
Soviets plowed... to Moscow
The Red's quick retreat gave Bin Laden more power
Incidents... from within
CIA planned... with a grin

The warring plans
Covered in sand
Oil from the wells
After all
The Taliban
Afghanistan
Oil from the wells
After all

It's a repetitive world

War machine mounts for oil accounts [2x]

The warring plans
Aimed at Saddam
War machine mounts for oil accounts

The warring plans
Ignored Sudan
Not enough oil for it to count

War machine [4x]

Extremist plans
Based in Iran
Mujadeens pounce on large amounts

The grabbing hands
Of Cheney's man
Dubya lost count of large amounts
