stand

well i'm not about to stand back
and i'm not going to stay calm
while my country picks new targets out
starts dropping their nepalm
and the leaders beat the battle drums
and i'm not about to dance
and i will not keep my mouth shut
while they draw up their new war plans
and we once again treat cities like they're
spots of heat that show up on some pilot's screen
when he's far enough away
just drops the canisters and flies away
never hear the people scream

but it's just a job he's sent to do
to protect his nation's flag
so his leaders can fold it
hand it to his parents when his
body's sent home in a bag

now i'm not about to stand back
and i'n not going to stay calm
while my country picks new targets out
and starts dropping the nepalm
and the leaders beat the battle drums
and i'm not about to dance
and i will not keep my mouth shut
while they draw up their new war plans
