In a smirking rage, he howls for more
Jesus on his lips
Horror in his heart

The monster Bush now lives

Stolen elections
Domestic terror
And the blood of 911

The monster Bush hungers for more

The Carlyle Group
The Enron scam
Religious fever
And the 'accidental' murder of Paul Wellstone

It's not enough, the monster craves more and more

So on to Iraq
And the murder of thousands of Americans Soldiers
While spilling the blood of nameless Arabs
