Here comes the helicopter, second time today
How many kids they've murdered only God can say, hey
If I had a rocket launcher, I'd make somebody pay
I don't believe in guarded borders and I don't believe in hate
And when I talk with the survivors of things too sickening to relate
If I had a rocket launcher, I would retaliate
On the Rio Lacantun, one hundred thousand wait
Cry for Guatemala, with a corpse in every gate
If I had a rocket launcher, I would not hesitate
I want to raise every voice, at least I've got to try
Situation desperate, echoes of the victims cry
If I had a rocket launcher, some son of a ***** would die
