Back to Mass Destruction lyrics

Mass Destruction

My dad came into my room holdin' his hat
I knew he was leavin'
He sat on my bed told me some facts
Son, "I have a duty, callin' on me
You and your sister be brave my little soldier
And don't forget all I told you
Your the mister of the house now remember this
And when you wake up in the mornin' give your momma a kiss"
Then I had to say goodbye

In the mornin' woke Momma with a kiss on each eyelid
Even though I'm only a kid
Certain things can't be hid
Momma grabbed me
Held me like I was made of gold
But left her in the stories untold
I said, "Momma it will be alright
When daddy comes home, tonight"

Whether long range weapon or suicide bomb
A wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you're soar away sun or BBC one
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruct'
If you're a Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether Haliburton, Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction
We need to find courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction

The skin under my chin is explodin' again
I'm gettin' stress from some other children
I'm holdin' it in
We takin' sides like a politician
And if I get friction, we get to fightin'
I defend my dad, he's the best of all men
And whatever he's doin', he's doin' the right thing
It's frightenin', but it makes me mad
Why do all these people seem to hate my dad
And if that ain't enough now I get these spots
I go to sleep every night with my stomach in knots
And what's more, I can hear momma next door
Explore the radio for reports of war
And all we ever seem to do
Is hide the tears
Seem like daddy been gone for years
But he was right
Now I'm geared up for the fight
And he would be proud of me
If my daddy came home tonight
Listen me calmly

Whether long range weapon or suicide bomber
A wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you're soar away sun or BBC one
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruct'
If you're a Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether Haliburton or Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction
We need to find courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction

My story stops here, lets be clear
This scenario is happenin' everywhere
And you ain't goin' to Nirvana or Farvana
You're comin' right back here to live out your karma
With even more drama than previously, seriously
Just how many centuries have we been
Waitin' for someone else to make us free
And we refuse to see
That people overseas suffer just like we
Bad leadership and ego's unfettered and free
Who feed one the people they're supposed to lead
I don't need good people to pray and wait
For the Lord to make it all straight
There's only now, do it right
'Causes I don't want your daddy, leaving home tonight
