The Lyrics

How does it feel to be into war profiteering?
Now that you know the creeps you are
How sick do you want to be?
Since you have come so very far
as far as Ike did foresee

How does it feel in the military-industrial complex?
How often have you sinned there?
Often enough to know
What good is peace when you are there?
Nothing. It doesn't blow.

War makes them rich men
Guns make them rich men
Missiles make them rich men too
They invest all their money in tanks & bombs
torpedos, too
What a thing to do

War makes them rich men
Guns make them rich men
Missiles make them rich men too

How does it feel to be into war profiteering?
ruining unnaturally
& happy to be that way
Now that you've signed another deal
What new weapon will you guys make?

War makes them rich men
Guns make them rich men
Missiles make them rich men
BOO!

People like this used to make the Bosnians pray for oil.

Kansas City is supposed to be getting a new factory to build components for nuclear weapons. The city fathers/muthers are bragging about the new jobs. The local investigative paper had just published a story about how most of the workers in the old factory had died from cancer caused by exposure to toxic metals.
