"Bomb Yourself" as written by and Babatunde O Adebimpe David Sitek....
Bomb your country
Oh shed no tears
TV dinner overfed your fears
So make your money
And spread your seed
Better lap up luxuries
But acknowledge need
You've made a family
Now kill 'em dead
Oh it's not me Ma
It's what the TV said
Your final fantasy for your
Final days
Oh baby it's the infancy
In so many ways
Bomb your country
Then sit and smile
Why don't you lay back easy
Just wait a while
Just wait a while

So baby bomb your country
And sit and smile
Oh baby lay back easy
Just wait a while
Just wait a while

Final fantasy

    General CommentI believe this song is intended to make the listener believe that by the US waging war against other nations it is only bombing itself ['bomb your country']. That we are a selfish nation that takes advantage of our abundant wealth while still acknowleging poverty in the rest of the world [So make your money, And spread your seed, Better lap up luxuries, But acknowledge need,'] without taking action. In doing so it will come back and smack us in the face and in a sense we will be responsible for our own downfall ['You've made a family, Now kill 'em dead'].Whereas most citizens of the republic wont feel responsible because the media manufactured our consent for us ['Oh it's not me Ma
    It's what the TV said'] Another thing I believe that is being suggested is that those in government who as our elected leaders decided military action was/is neccesary are only fulfilling their own desires to see the 'end of days' come as a result of their Christian Evangelical theology ['Your final fantasy for your
    Final days'] in order to facilitate the creation of a new better world ['Oh baby it's the infancy
    In so many ways ']. ......... Now, as for me, I personally disagree with the lefty non-sense being espoused by the song, but regardless these guys rock hard, and I will be sure to see them on New Years Eve at BAM performing with George Clinton & the P-Funk All Stars.

    General Commentso very wrong, guy.

    the whole album is about couples and lovers and unwanted or wanted children and pregnancies.

    and then the next album, return to cookie mountain, is about confusing sex and love and all the problems that creates.
