Story behind the song
Let the festivities begin
Lyrics
The draft is coming It's blowing down the door So pack your bags, boys and girls We're all going off to war You can be the next to die for Halliburton Pull the cord, drape the flag and draw the curtain You can pull the trigger for the Exxon Corporation Watch the cities burn around you while you're standing at your station You can shoot the children as they throw stones at your Humvee And you can die for Kerry or maybe for Dick Cheney (Chorus) When your tours are over and you come back Maybe you can go to college if you survive Iraq With DU dust in your lungs you can learn a trade In your dying years you'll have it made And when you're coughing up your last breath beneath the overpass You'll be praying for the fortunes of the military brass (Chorus) But you can be happy about the cause for which you died At least you fought for freedom unlike the other side They were setting off car bombs while you dropped them from the sky You sold the country off to whatever company would buy Shut their papers down and shot them for their liberty So as you die you know you left the world a bit more free (Chorus) Yes you can die for oil and watch history repeat Fight for empire in the desert and go down in defeat Or maybe it could happen that now in the second round We will take the struggle higher and this time hear the sound Of the chimes of freedom ringing when we take Washington, DC 'Cause opportunity is knocking, oh say, can you see (Chorus) Created September, 2004
