Welcome to the 2003 minus 25
Oh, say, can you smell her for the smoke?
God's still up there laughin', so he's gotta be alive
Who says he can't take a dirty joke?

Power is and power does and power slips away
It's so easy to abuse
Who'd have thought them Arabs would've bought the U.S.A.
Just to give it to the Jews?

Singin' crime still don't pay, just like it used to
And time slips away 'til you die
And you know that I don't give a damn when I choose to
And you know that it don't hurt so bad when you're high

Oh, say, does the future of the homesick and the brave
Even matter anymore?
There ain't no more reason for them boys to run away now
Than there was the fight before

Would you tell me why the hell we tried to win back in the war
What we wasted in the last?
Might just ain't as righteous as it used to be before
When your army's out of gas

Singin' crime still don't pay, just like it used to
And you know that time slips away 'til you die
And you know that I don't give a damn when I choose to
And you know that it don't hurt so bad when you're high

Singin' crime still don't pay, just like it used to
And you know that time slips away 'til you die
And you know that I don't give a damn when I choose to
And you know that it don't hurt so bad when you're high
