LyricsEdit

Dig it
Cut it
Burn it
Discard it

Hit me with that hard cash in the mouth again
Our boys don't feel it bleed when they see me on TV
The price of precious oil is up, and I'm down
But the investors sound the plea, the army moves to rescue me

Commerce, industry
Recession, war rescues me

The press on the domestic front was looking bad
Economic scandals sting, the environment restraining me
It was looking like I might have to buckle down
Slap some corporate hands and start recycling things

Commerce, industry
Recession, war rescues me

Now the jets are flying low again
The flag is flying high
Over all the cars and plastic
For which it stands for which your sons will die

Smile for the camera!

Get those presses rolling boys, we've got to sell those maps
The people want to know just where the hell's Iraq?
Don't let them know that this is not an isolated war
Don't let them figure out we value oil more than your...

Life... industry
Recession, war rescues me
Commerce, industry
Recession, war rescues me
