"First Place!!" as written by and Garneau....
You have killed them
And you don't know why
Your lips, they move
And they only lie

Your house is white
It's got nice things inside
When you are through
You'd better run and hide
In awe, in awe

This brigade of girls and boys
We will rid of you
And of your dangerous toys
Like father, like son and so on
And so forth, in awe, in awe

But we, we will win first place!!!
And you, we'll never tell you how
But you shoulda known by now

You have killed them
And you don't know
You don't know why
Keep it down
It's no big news, you know?
You know

    General CommentWhen I first heard about this song. I thought of the U.S presidency. "your house is white, it's got nice things inside." Possibly George W Bush "like father like son" And it's a rebellion song, getting anger out on the government. "we will rid of you and your dangerous toys." "you have killed them and you don't know why." Possibly about the gov. sending troops to the war in iraq without concrete reason. Or war in general.
    I don't know, that is just my take on this particular song. But a good song is one that everyone is able to interpret in their own way.

    General CommentI don't know if you got those lyrics from a different version, but here are the lyrics from the one on the album:

    You have killed them
    And you don't know why
    Your lips they move
    But they only lie
    Your house is white
    Its got nice things inside
    When you are through
    you better run and ahide

    You know, you know, you know
    You know, you know, you know

    This brigade of
    Girls and boys
    We will ride of you
    And of your dangerous toys
    Like father like
    Son and so
    On and so forth

    You know, you know, you know
    You know, you know, you know

    But we will win first place
    And we'll never tell you how
    But you shoulda known by now

    You have killed them
    And you don't know why

    Keep it down
    It's no big news
    You know, you know
    You know, you know
