lyrics

Can you hear what the people are saying, out on the street today?
I'm askin can you hear what the people are screaming, out on the street today?
Leader! Leader! Won't you listen please?
Becasue my brother is bleeding and my sister is pleading and we're all down on our knees.
All because we shoot first, we ask later. That's just the way we do, and when you shoot first and ask later- You make the American Dream come true.

Now there's a fire in the sky tonight, and there's blood all over the scene. And the bodies are piling up oh my- on my TV screen.
Leader! Leader! Whatcha gonna do?
Because the bullets are flyin and your people are dyin and they've all come lookin for you
All because we shoot first, we ask later. That's just the way we do, and when you shoot first and ask later- The American Dream's comin down on you.

I said I don't know why, and I don't know how-
but we've lost the way, and we're fallin down. X4

Leader!
