They gave my boy a gun,
loaded with uranium.
war complex profits rise
you filthy rotten scum!

Our leaders lie and deceive,
to feed their corporate friends greed,
pre-emtive war is what we need
while our veteran's kids are born with no feet

Our children will cry,
"what have you done?
You believed a lie?
Now look what has come"

Propaganda blows,
agitation grows,
blood and oil flows
the right wing knows

Our children will cry,
"what have you done?
You believed a lie?
Now look what has come"

Politicians working for you and me?
Neo-cons and mega money
Now we're voting electonically
PLEASE WAKE UP!

Fascistic screws tightening down,
Corporations control your town,
Climate change is....
just around the corner....

They won't spend a dime
destroying the environment is no crime
they got a place in theCayman Ils
you filthy rotten scum

How is the air?
How is the ice?
Oceans are diluting,
but why stop polluting?

They won't spend a dime
destroying the environment is no crime
they got a place in the Cayman Ils
you filthy rotten scum

They gave my boy a gun
said he'd get an education
they gave my boy a gun
loaded it up with uranium
