Embed: With the unbounding determination of our people,
We will gain the inevitable triumph.
So help us God."

More wars on foreign shores, more names for us to mourn
To misguide the misinformed to ignore the sick and poor
Thus we praise the lords of war on our knees and beg for more
A fresh poison for the weak, filthy little beasts bred to conform

It's the dwarfed souls of greedy men
Feculent, arrogant
That shackles our young to the cold concrete
And empty their guns into bodies

They scream, "I'm not guilty"
They scream, "I'm not guilty"
But cowards here are only what they fear
Shout until the threat stops

I'd rather be in battle than at peace
I'd rather be a wolf than a sheep
I'd rather be in battle than slaughtered like cattle
The weak can sleep while
The weak can sleep while

You were born to be led, that's what religion says
With a bifurcated tongue, America eats its young
Bullet-toothed, empty gods paralyze the minds and contest the thoughts
With devils everywhere, bombs bursting in the air
Drones flown over thrones of bone and brimstone
Sabers rattle in the homes of the cowards and the crones
As they shackle our young, blood stains the streets
Pigs empty their guns in their bodies

They scream, "I'm not guilty"
They scream, "I'm not guilty"
But cowards here are only what they fear
Shout until the threat stops

I'd rather be in battle than at peace
I'd rather be a wolf than a sheep
I'd rather be in battle than slaughtered like cattle
The weak can sleep while
The weak can sleep while

Bow down to the lords of war
On your knees for the lords of war
Bow down to the lords of war
On your knees for the lords of war

We rise in defiance, we won't remain silent
To triumph over tyrants and police violence
Shoot until the threat stop
Shoot until the threat stop

We're not guilty, we're not
We're not guilty, we're not
Help us God

I'd rather be in battle than at peace
I'd rather be a wolf than a sheep
I'd rather be in battle than slaughtered like cattle
The weak can sleep while
The weak can sleep while

The lords of war
On your knees for the lords of war
Bow down to the lords of war

What is so terrible about a child screaming?
Why should it disturb us?
Just because we happen to be there to hear it?
What about the child who comes from an inadequate home
Where he gets no encouragement from his parents
Where he doesn't have enough to wear
He doesn't have enough to eat, he comes to school hungry
This beautiful, breathtaking wkaLyrics provided by Lyricsmp3skullhttp://lyricmp3skull.org/" readonly/>

"With confidence in our armed forces,
With the unbounding determination of our people,
We will gain the inevitable triumph.
So help us God."

More wars on foreign shores, more names for us to mourn
To misguide the misinformed to ignore the sick and poor
Thus we praise the lords of war on our knees and beg for more
A fresh poison for the weak, filthy little beasts bred to conform

It's the dwarfed souls of greedy men
Feculent, arrogant
That shackles our young to the cold concrete
And empty their guns into bodies

They scream, "I'm not guilty"
They scream, "I'm not guilty"
But cowards here are only what they fear
Shout until the threat stops

I'd rather be in battle than at peace
I'd rather be a wolf than a sheep
I'd rather be in battle than slaughtered like cattle
The weak can sleep while
The weak can sleep while

You were born to be led, that's what religion says
With a bifurcated tongue, America eats its young
Bullet-toothed, empty gods paralyze the minds and contest the thoughts
With devils everywhere, bombs bursting in the air
Drones flown over thrones of bone and brimstone
Sabers rattle in the homes of the cowards and the crones
As they shackle our young, blood stains the streets
Pigs empty their guns in their bodies

They scream, "I'm not guilty"
They scream, "I'm not guilty"
But cowards here are only what they fear
Shout until the threat stops

I'd rather be in battle than at peace
I'd rather be a wolf than a sheep
I'd rather be in battle than slaughtered like cattle
The weak can sleep while
The weak can sleep while

Bow down to the lords of war
On your knees for the lords of war
Bow down to the lords of war
On your knees for the lords of war

We rise in defiance, we won't remain silent
To triumph over tyrants and police violence
Shoot until the threat stop
Shoot until the threat stop

We're not guilty, we're not
We're not guilty, we're not
Help us God

I'd rather be in battle than at peace
I'd rather be a wolf than a sheep
I'd rather be in battle than slaughtered like cattle
The weak can sleep while
The weak can sleep while

The lords of war
On your knees for the lords of war
Bow down to the lords of war

What is so terrible about a child screaming?
Why should it disturb us?
Just because we happen to be there to hear it?
What about the child who comes from an inadequate home
Where he gets no encouragement from his parents
Where he doesn't have enough to wear
He doesn't have enough to eat, he comes to school hungry

Otep is a nu metal band formed in 2000 in Los Angeles, California by Otep Shamaya. The band originally formed as a four-piece nu metal band and were invited to play Ozzfest before they had even signed to a label after Sharon Osbourne witnessed a brief part of their live performance. They've since played Ozzfest several times. Otep have since released six full-length albums featuring many session musicians including Greg Wells, Joey Jordison of Slipknot, Koichi Fukuda of Static-X, Emilie Autumn, Tony Campos of Soulfly and Asesino (ex-Static-X), and Ulrich Wild.
