You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be. You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fingers, and say "that's
the bad guy."
So, what dat make you? Good?
You're not good; you just know how to hide. Howda lie.
Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth--even when I lie.
So say goodnight to the bad guy. Come on; the last time you gonna see a bad guy like this, let me tell ya.
Come on, make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through; you better get outta his way!"

Americans do the dirty work for the rest of the world, and they ride our coat tails. They drink coffee that was grown in famine-stricken nations the
same as us. They work the weapons blackmarket, same as us. They consume too much oil, like us. When they don't come along for our wars, they
certainly never stand in our way. They could have stopped us. They could have fielded separating forces. They could have imposed sanctions. They were
never interested in stopping us. They were interested in being seen damning us.
America is the poster child for the sins of European civilization. We didn't invent it, we didn't implement it, we don't carry the torch alone.
We're the frontman, everyone else quietly pays their tribute and takes their cut of the plunder, then talks a good fight for the benefit of their
citizens. Fact of the matter is, if confronted with the truth, that their quality of life will suffer if America gives up the plundering, those
foreign citizens would stop complaining.
There's no making them happy- this is how it's meant to be. This is how the system works. They were meant to be lied to, they will be lied to,
nothing will change.
Everybody else is on the recieving end of this massive economic act of carnal knowledge so I really doubt they'll come around to our way of seeing
things unless we can find a way to cut them in on the profits without blowing our margins.
And that's that. Make way for the bad guy.
