Anti Flag Depleted Uranium Is A War Crime (Lyrics)

Depleted uranium is used on the ends of bullets
And on the ends of shells because it is so hard
Almost any armament is vulnerable
To something that is tipped with depleted uranium

In the cities and towns of Afghanistan
In the heart of the Balkans, the heart of Iraq
Not your Grandfathers style of deadly munitions
Its silent and deadly years after the mission

Depleted uranium is a war crime
Depleted uranium is a war crime

Gonna cut through their armor, then cut through your lungs
If you make it home alive, youll still die young
A greedy gang of liars, yeah, weve seen it all before
A moneymaking scheme led by war-profiteering whores

Depleted uranium is a war crime
Depleted uranium is a war crime

They were throwing it away
Until they figured out they could use it for armament

Half-life, 4.5 billion
Half-life, youll waste away
Half-life, 4.5 billion
Half-life, youll waste a

Weve heard their lies before and we know theyre lying again
Feels like a deja vu of Agent Orange and Vietnam
Weaponry so sadistic, it is hard to comprehend
War profits surge with every breath by Uncle Sam

Depleted uranium is a war crime
Depleted uranium is a war crime
Depleted uranium is a war crime

We went to a hospital in Southern Iraq
And a woman was there with a very deformed child
And her husband had been in the Iraqi Army
And had been in the battles in Southern Iraq
And came home and they produced a baby
That was, very severe malformations

Both the Leukemia rates in children
And malformations at birth had increased by six hundred percent
And it was clearly an epidemic where all this DU had been dumped
It becomes a dust that can be inhaled
And infect the blood stream and the rest of the body

And it was the opinion of the doctors there
That this was caused by depleted uranium
They simply saw this as being a direct result
Of the war by the United States

Half-life, 4.5 billion
Half-life, we waste away
Half-life, 4.5 billion
Half-life, we waste away

Half-life, 4.5 billion
Half-life, we waste away
Half-life, 4.5 billion
Half-life, we waste away

The doctor said, Women at the time of birth
Dont ask if its a boy or a girl, they ask, 'Is it normal?'

The military denies first and then after the evidence builds to the point
Where they can no longer deny, then they do the research
Thats what happened in the Vietnam era around Agent Orange
And I suspect and Im worried that thats what will happen this time
