Anti-Flag 1 Trillion Dollars

Anti-Flag is a punk rock band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, formed in 1988. The band is well known for its outspoken political views.

Buy Anti-Flag's "1 Trillion Dollars"

Buy Anti-Flag's "1 Trillion Dollars"

One trillion dollars could buy a lot of bling
One trillion dollars could buy most anything
One trillion dollars buying bullets, buying guns
One trillion dollars in the hands of killers, thugs

Woah-oh-oh woah-oh woah-oh-oh-oh
Fuck the world, a lot of people gotta die tonight
Woah-oh-oh woah-oh woah-oh
Fuck the world,
Fuck ’em all

One trillion dollars to Africa, Iraq
One trillion dollars and it’s never coming back
One trillion dollars could buy some bad-ass drugs
One trillion dollars makes me wanna kill myself

Woah-oh-oh woah-oh woah-oh-oh-oh
Fuck the world, a lot of people gotta die tonight
Woah-oh-oh woah-oh woah-oh
Fuck the world, yeah, yeah
Fuck ’em all

Until the sun burns from the sky
Until the sun burns so bright this world is no more
Sun burns from the sky…
And all the people are just dust on the ground

One trillion dollars could buy a heart, a soul
One trillion dollars buying nations – all the world
One trillion dollars could make the fat lady sing
One trillion dollars, what a bullshit useless thing

Woah-oh-oh woah-oh woah-oh-oh-oh
Fuck the world, a lot of people gotta die tonight
Woah-oh-oh woah-oh woah-oh-oh-oh
Fuck the world, a lot of people gotta die tonight
Woah-oh-oh woah-oh woah-oh-oh-oh
Shit loads of money spent will show us wrong from right
Fuck the world
Fuck ’em all
