The Terrorists Have Won

The Terrorists Have Won

A patriotic retort to years of hearing that Americans needed to surrender our most basic values, or else, “The terrorists have won.” 

If you hear a man,
Talking in a foreign tongue,
And you’re wondrin’ if he’s got a bomb,
The terrorists have won.
And if you see a man,
Turban wrapped around his head,
And you’re thinking you should get the Feds,
The terrorists have won.

The terrorists have won.
I mean, the ones in Washington.
If you sacrifice
Your freedom and your rights,
The terrorists have won.
The terrorists have won.

When your Uncle Sam
Puts your neighbor in a cell
For reasons that he will not tell,
The terrorists have won.
And when your Uncle Sam
Says anyone who don’t agree
Been sleeping with the enemy,
The terrorists have won.

I’ll tell you who is scaring me,
More than any enemy.
It’s those who use a tragedy
To take away our liberty.

If you see a world
Where the devil is the other guy,
And God is always on your side,
The terrorists have won.
And if you see a world
Where showing ’em what’s right from wrong
Means blowing them to kingdom come,
The terrorists have won.

Don’t give up the fight
For the Bill of Rights
Or the terrorists have won.
