you were over there
we called it The Orient
we were over here
we called it The Occident

we don’t know what you called it
because we never ask
we just take your shit
study you real close
so we can take your shit
and then say ‘hey look at these guys
they ain't got no shit'

but i wanna share with you
and the whole world too
i’ll carve my insides out
to purge my white attitude
and i say

hey, mohammed
hey hey, mohammed
hey, mohammed
hey hey hey
let’s be friends

i have a lot to do
before i’m a worthy friend
there’s certain prerequisites
to being intimates

i know dropping bombs is out
so is me drawing you
but that’s ok with me
its penance for Afghanistan
Yemen and Iran
Bahrain and all the rest
you can draw me all day
USers are idol-proof
and i say

i know it's not safe for you
in my homeland
the term is objectionable
as though there's some other land
we have any claim to
other than home
other than home

but i've seen you out
on the interstates
and i work with you
and sometimes we date
you are everywhere
and so are we
we are everywhere
so lets be friends
that's why i say
i say

hey, mohammed
hey hey, mohammed
hey, mohammed
hey hey hey
let’s be friends
