    the sun is setting on the century
    and we armed to the teeth
    we're all working together now
    to make our lives mercifully brief
    schoolkids keep trying to teach us
    what guns are all about
    confuse liberty with weaponry
    and watch your kids act it out
    every year now like christmas
    some boy gets the milkfed suburban blues
    reaches for the available arsenal
    and saunters off to make the news
    and the women in the middle
    arelearning what poor women have always known
    that the edge is closer than you think
    whe your men bring the guns home

    look at where the profits are
    that's how you'll find the source
    of the big lie that you and i
    both know so well
    in the time it take this cultural
    death with to run its course
    they're gonna make a pretty penny
    and then they're all going ot hell
    he said the chickens all come home to roost
    yeah malcolm forecasted this flood
    are we really gonna sleep through another century
    while the rich profit off our blood?
    true it may take some doing
    to see this undoing through
    but in my humble opinion
    here's what i suggest we do

    open fire on hollywood
    open fire on MTV
    open fire on NBC
    and CBS and ABC
    open fire on the NRA
    and all the lies they told us
    along the way
    open fire on each weapons manufacturer
    while he's giving head
    to some republican senator

    and if i hear one more time
    about a fool's right
    to his tools of rage
    i'm gonna take all my friends
    and i'm gonna move to canada
    and we're gonna die of old age
