Lyrics
Intro Section
We follow all our orders, our brave leaders are without fear
Listen to slogans, we?ll kill for freedom this year
It isn?t really surgical, this ain?t exactly bloodless,
The Aces in my deck are in the oval office.

Verse 1
I hate ?em, hate ?em with a passion, he?s such a worthless shit,
His beady eyes and smirkin? grin, I?ve had enough of it.

Verse 2

Talkin? tough and walkin? tall, bring ?em on you say...
But you count on us to back you up - when you?re a million miles away

Bridge

They want us to do their bidding, me and my gun..
Well, I?d cut ?em if they stand and I?d shoot ?em if they run.

Liar, liar - pants on fire -speaking with a forked tongue,
Talk your motherhood and apple pie, but we don?t want to die young.

Bridge

Intro

Oh, yeah...We?d like wish him well, but can?t really do it,
One by one, he?s killin? us...he?s makin? us the target.
