"Newest Industry" as written by and Mould....
Been through mass destruction once
But once was not enough
Said we want a second chance
And all they say is tough
A world where science went too far
There's no way to survive.
Why can't we get this thing straightened out
I want to stay alive

They burned and bombed the east and north
And there's no place left to go
The sun belt overcrowded
So let's annex Mexico
The peso's only worth a dime
But think of all that land
No need for a civil war
We know they'll understand, right?

Is that how you like it?

Factories left unattended
Crumbling to the ground
We tried to keep them running out
But there's no more oil around
We used it to fight a war
That neither side could win
Vietnam was little league
Compared to where we've been

Now we lives in caves and huts
And we don't have pay TV
And everyone is signing up
For the newest industry
Standard oil goes solar power
All try to make a buck
So I'll sit around and smoke cigarettes
And I'll babble "What the fuck?"

Is that how you like it?

We'll all sign up for the newest industry
