  1. ahmadinejad / master of
    composed / plain-clothed
    & nondescript
    drags victory round
    in a blood soaked
    body-bag / while freedom lies
    chalk-traced across the ground / but
    oh / ahmadinejad / true victory
    is when the throats you slit
    start to scream with their feet
