"War Again" as written by and Danny Elfman....
Don't you know we got smart bombs
It's a good thing that our bombs are clever
Don't you know that the smart bombs are so clever
They only kill bad people now
Don't you know though our kids are dumb
We got smart bombs, what a joyous thing now
Here we go so let's drink a toast
To those clever bombs, and the men who built them

There they go now, there go all my friends
There they go now, marching off to war again
Smiling proudly, with their heads in the clouds

Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

Don't you know this is better than any video friend
It's an action movie
Here we go watch the bad guys get their butts kicked
Really makes me feel good
Here we go watching CNN, the adrenaline rushes through my veins now
Don't you know it's a feel-good show, electronic bliss
It's a video, video

There they go now, there go all my friends
There they go now, marching off to war again
With their bright flags waving in the wind
There they go now, marching off to war again
Smiling proudly, with their heads in the clouds

Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

Aren't you glad we got smart bombs
It's a good thing that our bombs are clever
It's a shame that our kids are dumb
But our bombs are smart, what a lucky thing now
Don't you know it's a feel-good show and it's suitable
For the whole darn family
Come on out everybody shout
Give a big salute to our ingenuity
Don't you know this is better than any video friend
It's an action movie
Here we go watch the bad guys get their butts kicked
Really makes me feel good
Don't you know it's Nintendo
Really gets the blood flowing through my veins now
Don't you know it's a feel-good show, electronic bliss
It's a video, video

There they go now, there go all my friends
There they go now, marching off to war again
With their bright flags waving in the wind
There they go now, marching off to war again
Smiling proudly

There they go now, there go all my friends
There they go now, marching off to war again
With their bright flags waving in the wind
There they go now, marching off to war again
Smiling proudly, with their heads in the clouds
See them smile now, marching on in line

Yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

There they go now
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

There they go now
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Wo wo, wo wo, yeah yeah yeah yeah

There they go now, there go all my friends
There they go now, marching off to war again

    General CommentIt's a don't-believe-what-your-hear anti-war song. Supposedly this was originally recorded for Dark at the end of the Tunnel but not issued there due to officials at MCA not wanting to stir up a hornet's nest. The singer suggests that we should be spending more time and effort on education and domestic issues than those abroad. Perhaps we should have listened back then.
    Ironically, after the first gulf war ended, there was a story about how a lot of the information presented to individuals was manipulated to make it feel better.
