"Government Flu" as written by and Jello Biafra....
We got a drug
We're gonna try it out on you
Won't make you die
It'll getcha just a little bit sick

Got a head cold, got a chest cold and it's three days old goin' on forever
Make you hazy, make you lazy, drive you crazy
For days and days and days and days and days and years

Barely got the time now
To stay on the job
Double up the dosage in your water supply
Make you even sicker till you're slippin' away

Getting all depressed, it's getting all your friends
You can't get it up for nothing that'll rock the boat

No!

The government flu
The government flu
The government flu

Slip it abroad
Keep a-slowin' down the USSR
But meanwhile
We'll keep an eye on what it's doin' to you

Got a head cold, got a chest cold and it's three days old, goin' on forever
Make you hazy, make you lazy, drive you crazy
For days and days and days and days and days and
Days and days and days and days and days and
Days and days and days and days and days and years

The government flu
The government flu
The government flew
Through
You

    General CommentThere's no veil on these lyrics although a simple-minded jack ass would disagree. Not one of DK's prouder moments but the reason I'm posting a comment is how insanely obvious the parrot effect is in this song. Jello bit off Dylan, Dylan bit off Woodie Guthrie, and every so called punk rock band that sand something besides sex drugs and rock n roll (which is more than suitable for me) bit off our beloved dead kennedys. I wish more songs nowadays had the balls to push the envelope like jello did, and once again, this song wasn't there strongest but how can you not feed into the notion of big brother's evil agenda. And I don't think its just an appetite for conspiracy theory bull-shit, what Jello wrote about is not literal, I don't think I have to even explain that, but what I think he is trying to convey is the Absolute Loss Of Trust. And the saddest part is that its a loss among ourselves, our own communities, our own state, of our country. And now, 2010, "everything" is so blatantly corrupt and dead that we need so many more song slike this but the Fuckin God Damn American People don't even give a shit if they're getting raped, robbed, or ripped off. Give them convenience ogr give them death!!!!

    Song MeaningThis song is about the government pumping us full of unnecessary drugs, for their own gains. They do it in order to slowly kill off an increasing world population. Why does a healthy small child need so many vaccinations? How has the human race survived until now? We don't need them! The Illuminati and the New World Order are killing us off and have been doing this since the 70s, with their swine flu jabs. Check out David Icke and his theories on the Illuminati/NWO and swine flu vaccinations on youtube - it's scary stuff, but essential viewing!

    My InterpretationThe Government funnel you into a lifestyle that's convenient for them. You work 9-5, 5 days a week, until you're either dead or about to retire. That's what the Government flu is.
