In a weapons producing nation under Jesus
In the fabled crucible of the free world
Camera crews search for clues amid the detritus
And entertainment shapes the land the way the hammer shapes the hand

Gleaming faces in the checkout counter at the Church of Fame
The lucky winners cheer Casino Nation
All those not on TV only have themselves to blame
And don't quite seem to understand the way the hammer shapes the hand

Out beyond the ethernet the spectrum spreads
DC to daylight, the cowboy mogul rides
Never worry where the gold for all this glory's gonna come from
Get along dogies, it's coming out of your hides

The intentional cultivation of a criminal class
The future lit by brightly burning bridges
Justice fully clothed to hide the heart of glass
That shatters in a thousand Ruby Ridges

And everywhere the good prepare for perpetual war
And let their weapons shape the plan
The way the hammer shapes the hand
The way the hammer shapes the hand

The way the hammer shapes the hand
The way the hammer shapes the hand
The way the hammer shapes the hand
...

Songwriters
JEFF YOUNG, MAURICIO LEWAK, MARK GOLDENBERG, KEVIN MCCORMICK, JACKSON BROWN
