Violence, oh no, is golden
Violence, oh no, is golden

Pass another plate of shrapnel
Sprinkle it with T.N.T
Gotta have another grenade salad
Split it with your enemy

Gotta sell another Uzi
Maybe couple of 44 mags
Got a wife and a kid to support
And a payment on the Jag

Won't you try this personal bazooka
Make you feel like a man
Show the little girls what's what
By the size of the thunder in your hands

Take a pocketful of Teflon bullets
Maybe 'nother Tommy gun
Gotta keep stuff movin' out the door
Got a business to run

Take it from me son
You can have a lot of fun

Violence, oh no, is golden
Violence, oh no, is golden

Violence, oh no, is golden
Violence, oh no, is golden

Pass another fleet of B-1 bombers
Grab an M-16
Buildin' Chevies was never the fun
As buildin' up the war machine

Got a rocket in my pocket and it's ready
Do you think we can deal?
Got a year end sale goin' on
You can see the appeal

'Cause I'm sellin' both sides of the fence
That be the name of the game
I don't care about your silly, little struggle
Money's colored all the same

Take a handful of Star Wars missiles
Maybe super laser gun
Gotta keep stuff movin' out the door
Got a business to run

Take it from me son
We can have a lot of fun

Violence, oh no, is golden
Violence, oh no, is golden

Violence, oh no, is golden
Violence, oh no, is golden

Violence is golden
Violence is golden
Violence, oh no, is golden
