NUCLEAR ASSAULT lyrics - Eroded Liberty

NUCLEAR ASSAULT
"Eroded Liberty"
(Nuclear Assault / John Connelly / Dan Lilker)

Welcome to the age of an American empire
Not a day will pass when bombs don't seem to fly
Scream about the rights of victims and their pain
But your actions are where the causes lay

Don't like what we have done
We're not the only ones
Before you raise you rage
Look closely at your past:

Algeria and Vietnam
Africa the Middle East
English ships and the slave trade
Now, tell me who's the beast

European leaders wringing their own hands
Set aside as powers in the Holy Land
To Europe, we are lacking in sophistication
Are we another little, shitty country?

Don't like what we have done
We're not the only ones
Before you raise you rage
Look closely at your past:

Southeast Asia and India
Aztec, Mayan, and Incan worlds
Chinese hooked on opium
Sacrificed for the old-world ways

Belief in their empire covers them in cloth
Forget their powers and morals, for the part
History shows us this has always been our harm
When we put up with this and the UN in charge

Don't like what we have done
We're not the only ones
Before you raise you rage
Look closely at your past:

America, your enemy
To heal, your leaders tell
But for your own demands
You need our power, as well
