"Your Gov't Loves You" as written by and Philip Adam/messina Taylor....
For every grain of sugar here's a pound a salt
To melt away all the shit this country shoved down my throat
No I won't ever cave or curl nothing I do's my fault
'Cause I'm a victim of sobriety in 50 states on drugs

For every act of love I attack assault
Yeah I destruct because I'm fucked I just won't give up
And some may say I'm stubborn and I won't grow up
But I think your all just used to having that ass tore up

Your part of the disease in a government corrupt
Toxic waste corporate sleaze destroying everything you touch
Mother bleeds we deceived seek in gods creed we trust
We looking up hogs we feed smog fogs and clouds our thoughts

Though I saw a flag with stars and stripes
That stood for equal rights
Civil liberties pursuit of happiness in life
Now I know were all just hoes spokes on a wheel of fortune
Lost tones in a song eternal souls scorching cause your

Government loves you so sleep now rest assured
Your taxes make prisoners of war around the world
They'll mind warp and drug you, rape your little girl
Your government loves you so sleep now rest assured

Let's take a little trip back in time to remember why your government loves you
They'd do anything fight and die for you
Operation mongoose couldn't shoot Castro
But got Martin Luther king blasted back in 68

'Cause they was afraid he was of communist regime
A black man with a dream of peace and equality
Was surely a threat to USA's economy of glutton war
Greed ace of spades Vietnamese oil brigades

And now the same shit today
Different presidential candidates
Same goal global control of the Middle East
Hey there's only a few more nations left to enslave

We need some more fancy clothes and golden roads paved now

'Cause your
Government loves you so sleep now rest assured
Your taxes make prisoners of war around the world
They'll mind warp and drug you, rape your little girl
Your government loves you so sleep now rest assured


2052 is the year
"now that the nuclear snow has cleared, it's time to announce the new world order is here.
I am George Bush Senior the third,
Your genetically engineered fascist leader. You are now ruled by a computer.

You are one race, one fuck, one sex, one money, on a space ship to mars,
Noah's arch no holds barred, this planet will explode in t-minus 4,

'Cause your Government loves you so sleep now rest assured
Your taxes make prisoners of war around the world
They'll mind warp and drug you, rape your little girl
Your government loves you so sleep now rest assured

They love you
They love you
They love you

    General CommentI read over this again, and I have to say I positively love these lyrics.... Very liberal, but they make some interesting points. And who can resist a good politician-bashing song? =p
