This is a rewrite of the Au Pairs' song "Armagh"
We don't torture, we're a civilized nation
We're avoiding any confrontation
We don't torture, we don't torture

Orange jumpsuits down in the hole
Sixteen years old at Guantanamo
You can wait your whole life for that Geneva package
But you're never gonna get it, you're no enemy combatant
You're a kid caught up in the global war on terror
Defending your home was your fatal error
Now you're on the floor with nothing but a hood on
And the man who just kicked your face in is pissing on the Qur'an

We don't torture, we're a civilized nation
We're avoiding any confrontation
We don't torture, we don't torture

We don't torture, we're a civilized nation
Of course sometimes there are harsh interrogations
Waterboarding and electrodes to the nuts
You must've been completely crazy to try and fuck with us
We do what we want, we don't give a shit
We'll take your rules of war and gag your mouth with it
And when you cry out no one's ever gonna listen
Tied up en route to a secret CIA prison

We don't torture, we're a civilized nation
We're avoiding any confrontation
We don't torture, we don't torture

Shock and awe on the individual
And the deepest scars are invisible
You're a new person made of fear and pain
If we did our job right you should be insane
Wipe out your personality in the tank
Pull you out of it scared cold and blank
And rewrite you how we want you to be
Just like we've done to your country

We don't torture, we're a civilized nation
We're avoiding any confrontation
We don't torture, we don't torture…
