Profit Off Our Blood

I can't believe this song was released 10 years ago. It still feels just as relevant, and probably always will.

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.
in the time it takes this cultural
death wish to run its course,
they're gonna make a pretty penny
and then they're all going to hell.
he said the chickens all come home to roost
yeah, malcom forecasted this flood.
are we really gonna sleep through another century
while the rich profit off our blood?
true, 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 republician senator

and if i hear one more time
about fool's rights
to his tools of rage,
I'm gonna take all my friends
and I'm gonna move to Canada
and we're gonna die of old age.
