The Social Monster by Pinkerton Thugs
People say it's peace time
We're looking towards the sun
We're destroying tanks and bombs
No more threatening "Red scum"
The Arabs? They've been silenced
And the oil is running free
So don't worry about your future
They've made it safe for you and me
But can you fill up your car and turn up your heat
Knowing your tank is filled with the blood of a terror democracy?
How about the puppets we put in power in South America?
To make sure we'd have no problems, unfriendly neighbors are such a
International corporations cannot come and reap the harvest
If the people are in power they'd realize just why they're starving
There is a war going on in your town, it's right outside your door
Welfare? Ha! That's a fucking laugh
It's government candy, it's poverty's crack
For some there's no such thing as peace
Economic wars have gone on for centuries
The police? They're an army. An army built for you.
And the CIA and FBI don't have to follow rules
Filter drugs down from the heavens, and guns a blaze tonight
You only feed into their hands when you kill off your own kind
Well there's a weapon that they have that's more cruel than the bomb
'Cause you die off very slowly thinking YOU create the harm
It's a weapon they call welfare and it's something many want
And they're willing to give it out because it keeps you in the dark
Why kill you? You're a bother, but no one would stand for that
When we can put you in a ghetto style concentration camp
What better way to keep a list of everyone that's poor
Than to set up a program that keeps you coming back for more
Oh to live inside of your world must be such a fucking dream
Not to worry day to day about your fellow human beings
IF YOU NEED A CANE TO WALK, YOU'D GET NOWHERE WITHOUT IT.
IF YOU NEED A GOVERNMENT TO LIVE THEY'VE GOT YOU WHERE THEY WANT
