So, we must ask ourselves, what is the dictionary definition of Terrorism?

"The systematic use of terror, especially as a means of coercion."

But what is terror?

According to the dictionary I hold in my hand,
"Terror is violent or destructive acts, such as bombing
Committed by groups in order to intimidate a population or government into granting their demands."

So what's a terrorist?

They're calling me a terrorist
Like they don't know who the terror is
When they put it on me, I tell them this
I'm all about peace and love (Peace and love)

They're calling me a terrorist
Like they don't know who the terror is
Insulting my intelligence
Oh how these people judge (People judge)

It seems like the Rag-heads and Paki's are worrying your Dad
But your dad's favorite food is curry and kebab
It's funny but it's sad how they make your mummy hurry with her bags
Rather read The Sun than study all the facts
Tell me, what's the bigger threat to human society;
B.A.E Systems or home made I.E.D's?
Remote controlled drones, killing off human lives
Or man with home made bomb committing suicide
I know you were terrified when you saw the towers fall
It's all terror but some forms are more powerful
It seems nuts, how could there be such agony?
When more Israeli's die from peanut allergies
It's like the definition didn't ever exist
I guess it's all just depending who your nemesis is
Irrelevant how eloquent the rhetoric peddler is
They're telling fibs, now tell us who the terrorist is

They're calling me a terrorist
Like they don't know who the terror is
When they put it on me, I tell them this
I'm all about peace and love (Peace and love)

They're calling me a terrorist
Like they don't know who the terror is
Insulting my intelligence
Oh how these people judge (People judge)

Lumumba was democracy
Mossadegh was democracy
Allende was democracy
Hypocrisy it bothers me
Call you terrorists if you don't wanna be a colony
Refuse to bow down to a policy of robberies
Is terrorism my lyrics? (is it?)
When more Vietnam vets kill themselves after the war than die in it
This is very basic
One nation in the world has over a thousand military bases
They say it's religion, when clearly it isn't
It's not just Muslims that oppose your imperialism
Is Hugo Chavez a Muslim? Nah... I didn't think so
Is Castro a Muslim? Nah... I didn't think so
It's like the definition didn't ever exist
I guess it's all just depending who your nemesis is
Irrelevant how eloquent the rhetoric peddler is
They're telling fibs, now tell us who the terrorist is

They're calling me a terrorist
Like they don't know who the terror is
When they put it on me, I tell them this
I'm all about peace and love (Peace and love)

They're calling me a terrorist
Like they don't know who the terror is
Insulting my intelligence
Oh how these people judge (People judge)

(You think that I don't know, but I know, I know, I know...
You think we don't know, but we know...) [5x]

Was building 7 terrorism?
Was nano thermite terrorism?
Diego Garcia was terrorism
I am conscious the Contras were terrorism
Phosphorus that burns hands, that is terrorism
Irgun and Stern Gang that was terrorism
What they did in Hiroshima was terrorism
What they did in Fallujah was terrorism
Mandella ANC that was terrorism
Gerry Adams I.R.A that was terrorism
Erik Prince Blackwater was terrorism
Oklahoma McVeigh, that was terrorism
Every day U.S.A that is terrorism
Every day U.K that is terrorism

(Every day) [7x]
(Oh...)
(Hey...)
(You think that we don't know, but we do...)
