The Lyrics

I'm trying to be impartial and to put myself in the place of an Islamic captive pissed off both by his captors and the one who brainwashed him as an expendable in the first place...
I see the guard's a-coming
with a nightstick on his hand
and I ain't slept an eyeful
perhaps you'll understand:
I'm stuck in Guantanamo
Ain't got no legal rights
and those days keep a-going
I'm kept awake all the nights

When I was just a youngster
Bin Laden told me, "Boy:
Those Yankee pigs are bastards
Just kill them all, you know"
So then I joined al-Qaida
they taught me how to fight
and I filled my place as soldier
until that fateful night

The Yankees caught and cuffed me
They were piss'd off somehow
For nine-one-one or something
I never got to know;
They flew me off to Cuba
and put me in the chains
and they beat the shit just out me
Allah, you know my pains!

If I'd ever get a trial
in this middle of nowhere
I'd rather move to Folsom
and be an inmate there
far from Guantanamo
that's just one hell to stay
and I'd tell that Trash-Bin Laden
to blast his head away!
