CRY UNCLE
 
Ho ho say can you see
Any carriers at sea
Tanks rummage cross fields
The infantry streaming
Tomahawks and Patriots
Screech through the skies
B-52s drown out the cries
Watch down below
While homes burn in your eyes
 
(THE ALLIES! THE ALLIES! COME SWARMING LIKE FLIES!)
(DRONES FLYING LOW TO ROOT OUT SPIES!)
 
Mothers and fathers and
Children and pets
Hospitals / Schools
Markets and Mosques / All
Unintended accidents
'Collateral damage'
General Powwow protests
'Terror to spare for today's
Victims of high tech'
 
(THE ALLIES! THE ALLIES! COME SWARMING LIKE FLIES!)
(DRONES FLYING LOW TO ROOT OUT SPIES!)
 
Your own government's
The one you must blame
We've come to convert you
For Democracy's the name of this
High stakes / Game
Delivered
Knock! Knock!
Hot on your doorstep
Spiced Texan style with spent
Nuclear residue
Authorized force by
Parliaments / Of course
They're elected
They vote
Who goes up next in smoke / And don't
Count out the corporates
Who'll raise the score more
 
(THE ALLIES! THE ALLIES! COME SWARMING LIKE FLIES!)
(DRONES FLYING LOW TO ROOT OUT SPIES!)
 
Try and resist
We'll show you a fist / Fuck
In the face
For the US is best
Israel next
Brits / Aussies / Even the Spanish
Conquistadores
Of chic post-modern
Imperialist design
As for the rest / Well
You'd better learn now
How to kowtow
Or we'll send in the 101st
To do you in worse
 
(THE ALLIES! THE ALLIES! COME SWARMING LIKE FLIES!)
(DRONES FLYING LOW TO ROOT OUT SPIES!)
 
War's war / 21st century
Preemptive Blitzkrieg
Shock and Awe / A futuristic
Game / Played by boys / Save for
The bagged body
Count them / But
Edited live by CNN
For the delicate appetite of your
States-side consumer
Raw footage far too
Explosive
Mother clutches her
Newborn / Child with
Mangled limbs
Those who dare protest
Against us / Pro-Saddam / And
Goddamn un-American
