I declare war on the world
War in outer space
I declare war in a nutshell
War all over the place

I declare war on every government
War against all odds
I declare war on your inner sanctum
On your blood thirsty gods

I declare war on the axis of morons
All out war on complacent consent
I declare war on the war against drugs
Rape and Slaughter of the innocent

War on big brother
Warmongers and profiteers
War on your dogma dubya
Armageddon's engineers

War in a heartbeat
I declare war on so-called civilization
World trade globalization
Organized desinformation

War on ambassadors of pretense
War on MTV and CNN
Macdonald's walt disney and bethlehem
On christina britney and eminem

I declare war on the world of anti-choice
On violent unilaterality
On the amassment of murderous high-tech toys
And all crimes against humanity

War on the moral majority
On corparate.com imperialism
On mindlessly bumbling stupidity
And police-state terrorism

Worldwar three - be all that you can be

    General CommentThis song has a major logical fallacy that is so obvious it's probably intentional: "I declare war on the war against drugs", ect. Although this song clearly comes from a very angry perspective and, hey, anger isn't logical. It is clearly addressing the problems in the world today. I can sympathize from this point of view quite a lot. Sometimes it just makes your blood boil, and the angry tone of the song conveys this very well. I just love how venomously sarcastic Lucia's vocals are when she sings "Worldwar three - be all that you can be". An excellent song from an excellent album--one of KMFDM's best, in my opinion.

    General CommentFae, I think you should realize that this is a song which is supposed to show their basic feeling towards a bunch of things rather than an actual declaration of war. "I declare war on the world" doesn't sound like something they actually planned on doing.

    The message I feel is in those lines is that they are annoyed with the world, and they are mocking Bush by saying they will declare war on it because it is something they feel should be done differently or improved. Same with war on drugs, stupidity, MTV, etc....

    So, I don't think it's really illogical, or at least I don't think it should be interpretted as such, since as you suggested, I do think this songs messages are intentional.

    General CommentDefinitely a great KMFDM song. The intro kicks, and the entire progression through the sound is great. The only thing that kind of annoys me after awhile is Bush's voice heard throughout the song. Although it does a good job of mocking him, it bugs me after hearing it 1000 times. Great album, great song, great band.

    General CommentIts perodying Bush and wars in general. This song actually kinda sucks. The lyrics are horribly written and the music is just ok. Plus the delivery isn't that great either. The whole WWIII album kinda sucked I think.
