Industry on the mercenary blood path, military loves the gory war bath, economics shape the battle landscape, all join together for the grand rape./Moral intentions make a scapegoat, excuse the rotting corpse inside the trenchcoat./ Praise the rotting minds above the club tie that sits in towers up in the blue sky, above the clouds, obscure the scarred earth, discuss maneuvers, moves for more death, arms make profit from the crushed head, build the towers up on the ditch head./ Betrayal forms the formal skyline, tinted windows catch the sunshine, such ice cold beauty makes the heart sink, five thousand miles away the dead stink./ And here the graveyard to insult them, the city shines with laughing tombstones./ The profiteers, the warcry butchers, stir up the lust for legal slaughter./ The living dead who look up to them, who accept authority that kills them, work for the corporation making napalm, workers watch the burning children on the T.V. as they eat their meat pie with refusal in their minds eye to see their own lives in that cold death, their state of wealth upon that lost breath./ In the official offices of death plan leaders of men work to betray man./ Stocks and shares declare the next war, the torture starts behind the locked door, propaganda tops the big desk./ Compose an overture to fine death./ The hideous grey men of our nightmares dim the colour, foul the clean air, their eyes forsake all that they dwell on, drag the lover from the loved ones./ Patriots progress is a back step, a cruel noose around a young neck./ They teach our children in the classroom to respect a madman on a rostrum, to praise the dirty works of battle, bring out the ribbon, balloon and rattle, to dig their own graves in the cold sad and pointless now to give birth.

    General CommentI found this song really scary. I don't know why. well I heard it many times i was not scared. but one night after I listened to this, I was fast asleep. And then I woke up when I was just half asleep, I got wierd feeling and heard the noises just like in this song. I was totally freaked out. I wasn't even fully awake. I think the title "Birth Control" freaked me out. like you know curse from the womb or something like that
