"To the Teeth [Shoot-Out Remix]" as written by and Ani Difranco....
The sun is setting on the century
And we are armed to the teeth
We're all working together now
To make our lives mercifully brief
And school kids keep trying to teach us
What guns are all about
Confused liberty with weaponry
And watch your kids act it out
And every year now like Christmas
Some boy gets the milk fed suburban blues
Reaches for the available arsenal
And saunters off to make the news
And the women in the middle
Are learning what poor women have always known
That the edge is closer than you think
When your men bring the guns home

And look at where the profits are, yeah
That's how you'll find the source
Of the big lie that you and I both know so well
In the time it takes this cultural death wish to run its course
They're gonna to make a pretty penny
And then they're all going to hell

And he said the chickens all come home to roost
Yeah, Malcolm forecasted this flood
Are we really going to sleep through another century
While the rich profit off our blood?
And true, may take some doing
To see this undoing through
But in my humble opinion
Here's what I suggest we do

Open fire on Hollywood
Open fire on MTV
Open fire on NBC and CBS and ABC
Open fire on the NRA
And all the lies they told us along the way
Open fire on each weapons manufacturer
While he's giving head to some Republican senator
And if I hear one more time
About a fool's right to his tools of rage
I'm gonna take all my friends
And I'm going to move to Canada
And we're going to die of old age
