Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm walking through your streets
Where all your money's earning
Where all your buildings crying
And clueless neckties working
Revolving fake lawn houses
Housing all your fears
Desensitized by T.V.
Verse 2
Overbearing advertising
God of consumers
And all your crooked pictures looking good
Mirrors filtering information through the public eye
Designed for profit sharing
Your neighbor, what a guy
Verse 3
Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom,
Every time you drop a bomb
You kill the god your child has born
Boom, Boom, Boom,
Verse 4
Modern globalization
Coupled with condemnations
Unnecessary death
Matador corporations
Puppeting your frustrations with a blinded flag
Manufacturing consent is the name of the game
The bottom line is money nobody gives a fuck
Verse 5
4000 hungry children
Leave us per hour from starvation
While billions are spent on bombs
Creating death showers
Verse 6
Boom, Boom, Boom,
Every time you drop a bomb
You kill the god your child has born
Verse 7
Boom, Boom, Boom,
Every time you drop a bomb
You kill the god your child has born
Verse 8
Boom, Boom, Boom,
Every time you drop a bomb
You kill the god your child has born
Verse 9
Why must we kill our own kind?
Verse 10
Boom, Boom, Boom,
Every time you drop a bomb
You kill the god your child has born
Verse 11
Boom, Boom, Boom,
Every time you drop a bomb
You kill the god your child has born
Verse 12
Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
Every time you drop the bomb
