Another rainy morning mingling at the market
Bartering for food for another day
Rifle shots ring out behind the crumbling buildings
Executions have begun 

Sprawled in the square are today's broken bodies
Lots to pick clean if you're first and quick
Rift through their pockets, peel off their clothes
To wear or sell when you wash out the blood 

Run my little brother
Run to the chicken farm
Opportunity is calling
You might even find a watch 

We're going down
To the chicken farm 

Napalm rains no more
But the war goes on
Little brother died playing at the dump today
He found a new toy and held it up proud
Then it blew him to bits 

How many more children 
Will be killed or die at birth 
Deformed by Agent Orange 
In our food chain forever more 
We're going down 
To the chicken farm 
This time we'll buy our way out 
I've got a plan; you wait and see 
I smuggled you this map 
In the gash I sliced in my thigh 
I hope I'm there to join you, love 
We're blown to bits one by one in this camp 
We crawl shaking through the fields at gunpoint all day 
To defuse leftover landmines-by hand 
We shiver on the deck and stiffen for the worst
If the pirates come around we might as well be dead
We'll be thrown in the sea
Or butchered if we're women
All in the name of gold 
One foot in a land we can barely understand
Can't speak the tongue of Yankee hospitality
Our kids at school get beat up
To the tune of "Boat people, go home" 

Sliced with a machete
From the breast of our homeland
Our new world tries to spit us out
But it sure beats the chicken farm
