We are a target for a tyrant of desert sands
He is part of the axis of evil that's grinding at us
We must have no second thoughts, but stick to our guns and bomb them to shits
Is what the leader of the free world is barking at us

There is only one way this could end now, for all to stand down
It is only for the better that both sides must sacrifice
It doesn't matter who started this conflict, but who shall make peace
In this spiral of reprisal, sense is overshadowed by excess of pride

Raising the cane
The will to keep policing their empire puts fuel to the fire
Raising the cane
Your war on terrorism is a war for terrorism
Raising the cane

We have no regard for the casualties
They are no match for the cavalry that busts their doors in
The eternity of this war, their world in smithereens
Why should they wish for peace?

Raising the cane
Raising the cane

We are entitled to this landmass of desert sands
It is part of promised land once rightly stolen for us
Instead of giving some back, we feed their bad blood and bomb them to shits
Is it strange that we become the victims of these wartorn impoverished minds?

It is but for the better that both sides must sacrifice
In this spiral of reprisal, sense is overshadowed by national pride
Raising the cane, not breaking the chain of war

Raising the cane
The stubbornness to keep your settlements, in a time you should repent
Raising the cane
If you cannot destroy your enemy, they will forever be
Raising the cane
