The Unknown Soldier

Wait until the war is over
and we're both a little older.
The unknown soldier

Breakfast where the news is read
television children fed
unborn living, living, dead,
bullet strikes the helmet's head.

And it's all over for the unknown soldier.
It's all over for the unknown soldier.

Comp'nee,
Halt!
Pree-sent arms!

Make a grave for the unknown soldier
nestled in your hollow shoulder.
The unknown soldier

Breakfast where the news is read
television children fed
unborn living, living, dead,
bullet strikes the helmet's head.

And it's all over, the war is over
It's all over, war is over

All over baby, all over...

Sir Francis Bacon’s Message to Future Generations

Men are not animals erect, but immortal gods. The Creator has given us souls equal to all the world, and yet satiable not even with a world. Everything is possible to man. Time is young; gives us some little centuries, and we shall control and remake all things.

We shall perhaps at last learn the noblest lesson of all, that man must not fight man, but must make war only on the obstacles that nature offers to the triumph of man

It will not be amiss to distinguish the three kinds, as it were grades, of ambition in mankind. The first is those who desire to extend the power in their native country; which is kind of vulgar and degenerate. The second is of those whose labor extend the power of their country and its dominion among men; this certainly has more dignity, but no less covetousness. But if a man endeavor to establish and extend the power and dominion of the human race itself over the universe, his ambition is without doubt both a more wholesome thing and a nobler than the other two.

When Ya Get Drafted

Please understand that American men and women must die to defend the Caspian oil pipeline, and to protect our country from the next U.S. sponsored Iraqi dictator. $12 billion a month, 4000+ American body bags, and tens of thousands of war cripples is a drop in the bucket when compared to the threat of dried-up filling stations and a possible nuclear salvo originating from the former Babylonian empire.

Your children must be sacrificed for the continuing Iraqi meat-grinding effort. How would you feel if all those soldiers died in vain? George W. Bush would not call for the wholesale slaughter of your lower-class born babies unless the cause was noble and just. Hell, we all die in the end.

Are you believing the morning papers?
War is coming back in style
There are generals here, advisers there
and [Islamicists] nibbling everywhere
The chessboard’s filling up with [Jihadists]
We make profits when we blow off their heads

Economy is looking bad
Let’s start another war when ya get drafted
Fan the fires of racist hatred
We want total war when ya get drafted

Drooling fingers
Panic buttons
Playing with missiles like they’re toys
There’s easy money, easy jobs
Especially when you build the bombs
That blow big cities off the map
Just guess who profits when we build ’em back up
Yeah, what Big Business wants Big Business gets

It wants a war when ya get drafted
Trilateral Commission goonies laugh
and scheme for more when ya get drafted
Call the Army!
Call the Navy!
Stocked with kids from slums when ya get drafted
If you can’t afford a slick attorney
We might make you a spy

Forget your demonstrations
Kids today sit on their ass when ya get drafted
Just a six-pack
And you’re happy
We’re prepared
For when ya get drafted ~ The Dead Kennedys (When Ya Get Drafted)

War does not determine who is right – only who is left ~Bertrand Russell
