  • You got Libya you got the Russians
    You got civilian planes crashing to the oceans
    Airports full of terrorists
    Nagi skins anarchists
    When are they gonna learn

    Better listen to me you son of a bitch
    Better disarm those missiles sleeping in the ditch
    You have no goddamn right to do the things you do
    The world would be a better place if we were rid of you
    Of rage and war
    Of rage and war
    Of rage and war
    Of rage and war

    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

    Better listen to me you son of a bitch
    Better disarm those missiles sleeping in the ditch
    You have no goddamn right to do the things you do
    The world would be a better place if we were rid of you
    Of rage and war
    Of rage and war
    Of rage and war
    Of rage and war

    War broods 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
    Of rage and war
    Of rage and war
