Lyrics:

You got civilian planes crashing to the oceans,
Airports full of terrorists, Nazi skins, anarchists.
When are you gonna learn?

Chorus:
Better listen to me you son of a bitch
Better disarm these missiles sleeping in the ditch

You have no goddamned right to do the things you do
The world would be a better place if we were rid of you
Of Rage And War (4 times)

Verse 2:
Every country's got the bomb the scientists are working on.
Chemical weapons to melt the flesh with no source of defense.
Shoot me, I'll shoot you like there's nothing better to do.
Who's the loser in the end?

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3:
War breeds in foreign lands, missiles launch upon command
Islam Lebanon, what the hell is going on
Ambassadors who say they try negotiating suicide
Are they prepared to face the end?
Of Rage And War (4 times)
