Golden country your face is so red
With all of your money your poor can be fed
You strut around and you flirt with disaster
And never really carin' just what comes after

Well your blacks are dyin' but your back is still turned
And your freaks are cryin' but your back is still turned
You better stop your hidin' or your country will burn

And the time has come for you my friend
To all this ugliness we must put an end
Before we leave we must make a stand, oh

Mortgage people you crawl to your homes
Your security lies in your bed of white foam
You act concerned but then why turn away
When a lady was raped on your doorstep today

Well your blacks are cryin' but your back is still turned
And your freaks are dyin' but your back is still turned
You better stop your hidin' or your country will burn

The time has come for you my friend
To all this ugliness we must put an end
And before we leave we must make a stand, oh yeah

Golden country your face is so red
With all of your money your poor can be fed
You strut around and you flirt with disaster
And never really carin' just what comes after

Well your blacks are dyin' but your back is still turned
And your freaks are cryin' but your back is still turned
You better stop your hidin' or your country will burn, yeah

Oh the time has come for you my friend
And to all this ugliness we must put an end
Before we leave we must make a stand, oh yeah

The time has come for you my friend
To all this ugliness we must put an end
And before we leave we must make a stand
Oh we must make a stand, oh yeah
