The sun is setting on the century and we are armed to the teeth
We're all working together now to make our lives mercifully brief
And school kids keep trying to teach us, what guns are all about
Confused liberty with weaponry and watch your kids act it out
And every year, now like Christmas, some boy gets the milk fed

Suburban blues reaches for the available arsenal and saunters
Off to make the news and the women in the middle are learning
What poor women have always known, that the edge is closer
Than you think, when the men bring the guns home, look at where
The profits are, that's how you'll find the source of the big lie

That you and I both know so well, by the time it takes this cultural
Death wish to run it's course, they're gonna to make a pretty penny
And then they're going to hell, he said, "The chickens all come home
To roost", Malcolm forecast the flood, are we really going to sleep
Through another century while the rich profit off our blood

Yeah, it may take some doing to see this undoing through
But in my humble opinion, here's what I suggest we do
Open fire on Hollywood, open fire on MTV, open fire on NBC
And CBS and ABC, open fire on the NRA and all the lies they told us
Along the way, open fire on each weapons manufacturer

While he's giving head to some republican senator and if I hear
One more time, about a fools right to his tools of rage
I'm gonna take all my friends and I'm going to move to Canada
And we're going to die of old age
