"THE AMERIKAN WAY"

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Verse 1
Well, stars 'n' stripes are flying
Over distant, battered lands.
Politicians lyin',
Wavin' peace signs with their hands.
Well, I'd like to see them tryin'
To explain it to the man
Who lost everything he loves & owns,
And that's how the seeds of hate are sown.
In history to headlines to Hollywood
This much I say is understood …

Chorus 1
War is the Amerikan way!
Hear her cannons roar, it's gonna ricochet!
War is the Amerikan way!
See her missiles soar, see her heart decayin'.

Verse 2
And I cannot resist the feelin'
That there's a number to her days,
And to all the death she's dealin'
In a thousand different ways.
In history, headlines, Hollywood
This much I say is understood,
It's coming right back down on her head,
The skies above her turn to red. I said …

Chorus 2
War is the Amerikan way!
Hear her cannons roar, it's gonna ricochet!
War is the Amerikan way!
See her missiles soar, see her heart decayin'.
War is the Amerikan way!
She's racing swiftly for her Judgment Day, sad to say.

Refrain 1
Sad to say, that's their way.
Sad to say, that's their way,

That's their way.

Verse 3
Stars & stripes are flyin'
Over rubble & debris,
As the sun sets on the dying in a land that used to be free.
But oh, by dawn's very early light,
They're saying, "More bombs are gonna make it right.
Why stay calm & patient?" Their tradition says fight.
Abomination in God's sight.

Chorus 3
War is the Amerikan way!
Hear her cannons roar, [Roar!]
War is the Amerikan way!
See her missiles soar, see her heart decayin'. Sayin'
War is the Amerikan way!
Hear her cannons roar more every day.
War is the Amerikan way!
She's racing swiftly for her Judgment Day, sad to say.

Refrain 2
Sad to say, [Woe to Amerika!]
That's their way, [Woe to America, woe to Amerika!]
Sad to say, [Amerika!]
That's their way, [Woe to Amerika, woe to Amerika!]
----- [The Amerikan Way!]
Sad to say,
[Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth.] that's their way!
