Around we go, when we stop, nobody knows
Look at the truant teenagers
who skip school, run riot, get high,
stop and fight the fight
then realize the government lets them die
it’s on the Breaking News, every station
didn’t you hear, a 19 year old kid died today?
Didn’t think so, well I did...
Listen to the families cry, curse up at the sky,
wishing it was their time
And what do they do… 21 solute?
Listen to them chant
We care, We care, but still send them there
But we live in America! Ya, ran by men in politics
Each one a novelist, a scholar, win votes to be popular
yeah, it’s the mafia, organized to look down on blue collar
regulating our ammo
sending kids in like they're Rambo
Look at the army rangers
Who leave home, kick up dirt, strap on 9’s, fight the fight
And listen to the bullets whizzin by
then come back and can’t believe when their benefits are denied
Then you wonder why they’re raggin
Get locked up cuz they went fuckin crazy
Listen to the old men reminisce, when they fought the war
rata tat tat sounds of a machine gun blast
fuck that, send a nuke, and even up the score
Let’s fight this war like 1944
Drop a bomb on their front door
Step back and say we won!
Stop wasting life on failure to triumph
