    For a couple of weeks every couple of years
    We all drop our guns and our paranoid fears,
    Say, "Let's get together and share a few beers,
    While we pledge our allegiance with prideful cheers."'

    Are we unsportsmanlike if we sandwich the days
    Of competing for fool's gold with years of disgrace?
    We murder and steal and we feed on malaise
    As we label the bad guys according to race.

    I'll be the first to admit I'm amazed,
    If we broke into war I'd not even be fazed.
    It's sad I could think that's a thing to be praised,
    But hating each other's just how we've been raised.

    I guess there's some hope if we made it this far,
    Maybe the whole thing is not just a farce,
    But the light in the darkness is still pretty sparse,
    The torch is a candle that soon will be marred.

    We'll pray for your health; there's no race without you.
    We'll be kind to your kind cause we need someone to lose.
    Mankind's most excellent loving break through
    Is to hang up our bows and play games to outdo.

    And really it's all just become an excuse
    To love our geography, a backhanded truce.
    The money we feed our insatiable pride
    Is more than I'd make in a thousand lifetimes.
