THE WAR AT HOME

It's only when something is illegal that you can call in the troops
and fight a real war, the way it should be fought.

You see that there? That's a homeless person. That's a cancer on our
society. Cut it out, eradicate it, lock it up and isolate it, get it
away from us before it infects us further, eliminate it. Call in the
bulldozers!

You see that there? That's a drug addict. That's a cancer on our
society. Cut it out, eradicate it, lock it up and isolate it, get it
away from us before it infects us further, eliminate it.

You see that there? That's a gang member. That's a cancer on our
society. Cut it out, eradicate it, lock it up and isolate it, get it
away from us before it infects us further, eliminate it.

You see that there? That's a criminal. That's a cancer on our society.
Cut it out, eradicate it, lock it up and isolate it, get it away from
us before it infects us further, eliminate it.

You see that there? That's a poor person. That's a cancer on our
society. They drag us down. Cut it out, eradicate it, lock it up and
isolate it, get it away from us before it infects us further,
eliminate it.

You see that there? That's a person with AIDS. They're a cancer on our
society. They're immoral; they deserve to die. Cut them out, eradicate
them, lock them up and isolate them, get them away from us before they
infect us further, eliminate them, crucify them.

If you applaud when we bomb our enemies and tell your children
violence is no remedy, is it any wonder the message does not hold?

If you tell them Jesus' love is our saving grace and then tell them
"we don't want no niggers round our place," is it any wonder they
can't tell right from wrong?

If you try to protect the thing you love with violence, you will only
destroy it.
