LyricsEdit

    Within striking distance from Ground Zero sits a smoldering international cauldron, the United "Abominations" as it were. Born to prevent wars, it froze in the face of disaster and stood silent while terrorization to hostage of the world
    In a mire of hypocrisy, the U.N. ignores sex crimes by its "blue helmets", and enables terrorism; so in the end it's failed and the U.N. is where our
    so-called friends get to stab us in the back and we pay 22% of their tab to host our enemies here at home.
    
    Ambassadors from countries enjoy otherwise known as a catastrophe, enjoy Diplomatic immunity living in Manhattan, while their children are turned into prostitutes It's a complete and utter disgrace, a blot on the face of humanity, and they get away with it.
    
    Poverty in their kitchens
    Held hostage by oil-for-food
    Yet their own plates are full off the fat of their lands
    There's no blood on their hands, right Kojo?
    They promised to tell the truth
    Without leaving a fingerprint,
    They will lose the U.N. one way or another
    The victim, I fear will be us, sisters and brothers
    
    The U.N. is right; you can't be any more "un"
    Than you are right now, the U.N. is undone
    Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun
    The threat is real, the Locust King has come
    Don't tell me the truth; I don't like what they've done
    It's payback time at the United Abominations
    
    A grave and gathering danger
    The decision to attack
    Based on secret intelligence it'll take years
    I fear to undo the failings in Iraq, Iran, and Korea
    You may bury the bodies
    
    But you can't bury the crimes only
    Fools stand up and really lay down their arms
    No, not me, not when Death lasts forever
    
    The U.N. is right; you can't be any more "un"
    Than you are right now, the U.N. is undone
    Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun
    The threat is real, the Locust King has come
    Don't tell me the truth; I don't like what they've done
    It's payback time at the United Abominations
    
    "The U.N. writes resolution after resolution and has become irrelevant through inaction and totalitarian paralysis,"
    "Order, Order!!!"
    "Ha! There is no such thing as order"
    "Larry, it's true, reports confirm today that the United Nations has officially closed its doors forever,"
    "Well, I just don't see what all the fuss is, because they don't do anything anyway, do they?"
    
    The U.N. is right; you can't be any more "un"
    Than you are right now, the U.N. is undone
    Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun
    The threat is real, the Locust King has come
    Don't tell me the truth; I don't like what they've done
    It's payback time at the United Abominations
    
    NATO invaded Yugoslavia to end ethnic cleansing, there was no U.N.
    The U.S. invaded Afghanistan after 9/11, there was no U.N.
    Saddam Hussein violated 17 U.N. resolutions; The U.N. was asked to join the
    war in Iraq. The U.S. invaded, Ha! there was no U.N.
    Libya bombed a discotheque in Berlin killing Americans, there was no U.N.
    Iran funds Hamas, and attacked the U.S. in the
    seventies, there was no stinking U.N.
    Facing War without end, looking into the future, there was no more U.N.
