(not much need) distraught wake up in sweat something is very different no water hot or cold walk out in the street greet the morning gun battles needless no need to understand in a foreign land with gun in hand killing is respected a way of showing faith in a country's need to exercise death penalities where were you now in the chair to burn twenty years ago killing red in nam who is worse when war is far away not much for sympathy a number count of casualties return so burned with nothing left to learn murder now invigorates the unwashed bloody hands kill again let the family burn do little to comfort anguishing no decision could ever warrant this war is just a childrens game no pretending dead why? dear god whom we project its useless killing children to satisfy the arms budgets who walks right or left a child won't give a damn nations arise to reason the conceptions threatened for economic steps is it time to shut down and lay to rest the bomb that servant suicide object worshipped like a god be there now blown clear the human race what use is there of figures the wrote wordless statistic names and numbers now seem out of place a paper representating life blowing down the street kill again

    General Comment This was always my favorite song off this album... I never had any idea it was so political until I read the lyrics just now. . It's obviously anti-war, I'm guessing Vietnam because of the line "killing red in nam". But I think it's mainly meant to be one of Ogre's rambles, with the general idea of violence and killing as a solution... Besides war, the death penalty is discussed, and possibly abortion, the line "It's useless killing children" immediately makes me think of abortion, but it could still be going with the idea of war, and a soldier killing a child, I wonder what they mean with "to satisfy the arms budget". anyway that's my favorite part of one of my favorite songs
