Commanded by deception told to liberate the oppressed
But they didn’t tell you that they had no plans to bring you back
Scramble through this rubble and you’ll find the enemy’s den
Your mission here is Search and Destroy and it’s just like Vietnam
Hey there Texas rancher man wake up
These games you play they’re not much fun
Hey there Texas rancher man you’re out
Legacy of a cowboy terrorist
Ah you’re so happy - happy at war
If you burn this flag you bare would anyone see or care
You can step outside the law because there are no laws out there
You can lay your weapons down - try to find a peaceful end
Perhaps you’d rather hang around and play Russian roulette with your friends
It’s all for oil and mud
It’s all for oil and mud
Then oil turns to blood
