Here comes the helicopter,

Second time today

Everybody scatters
E            D    C    D  E
And hopes it goes away

How many kids they've murdered

Only God can say

I'd make somebody pay

I don't believe in guarded borders and I don't believe in hate
I don't believe in generals or their stinking torture states
And when I talk with the survivors of things too sickening to relate
If I had a rocket launcher
If I had a rocket launcher
If I had a rocket launcher
I would retaliate

On the Rio Lacuntun one hundred thousand wait
To fall down from starvation or some less humane fate
Cry for Guatemala with a corpse in every gate
If I had a rocket launcher
If I had a rocket launcher
If I had a rocket launcher
I would not hesitate

INSTRUMENTAL

I want to raise every voice, at least I've got to try
Every time I think about it water rises to my eyes
Situation desperate echoes of the victim's cry
If I had a rocket launcher
If I had a rocket launcher
If I had a rocket launcher
Some son-of-a-bitch would die
