"Alpha Centauri" as written by and Omar/bixler Rodriguez....
Widows an antique replacement
A brief case filled with mace
Widows six legged lost and found
Students spray the kent state mist

Wishing wills missing clientele
Widows sex legged lost and found
Parkas worn in summer apparel
Sweat lodge comatose of broken arrows

Widows veiled in rebound sheets
This is the ghost of a chance the lonely
Widows sex legged lost and found
Pecision watch the scalpel make roads

Hear them talk in paranoid parables
Widows sex legged lost and found
Storefront chairmans fingering buttons
This running of the bulls will trample all

The life support systems
Madrid space station apain
E space flesh vs machine
Matadors chase the bulls

In a china shop
Gored my neck but don't spare me death
I'm running circles red cape paper
Taste the vapor

Matadors chase the bulls
In a China shop

    General CommentListen-up, it's a universal truth that war is the most costly endeavor you can take, in terms of both life and wealth. And besides, I don't think South Vietnam was a particularly wealthy part of Asia either (I don't know for sure, though, so correct me if I'm wrong). To me, it's a lot more likely that the US was trying to help out a friendly nation and strike a blow against communism. Believe it or not, on the military side of things the US would've done far better if politicians who didn't know how to fight wars hadn't tried to micromanage everything. If troops were allowed to invade North Vietnam or send patrols into Laos (where many Vietcong fled to escape the Army, I heard), then the outcome of the war may have been very different.
    Anyway, as far as the song goes, I have no clue what it's about, but the Vietnam analogy seems a little weak compared to the messages of songs like One-Armed Scissor or Arc Arsenal (which were total genius).
