This song is about how the government of the United States is a Christian government. The soldiers answer to the president, the president answers to his god. If you are a "good" soldier in the eyes of moral America, then you, too, believe in God.

Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz wrote this song. He explained that the idea behind the lyric is that "there's no such thing as a good soldier." After all, if there were no soldiers, there wouldn't be any wars.
