We were listening to this at 19-20 years old and knew what the message was. Everything has just gotten worse since then. Look where we're at now. Where is all of that military money going every year? And why? What's wrong with last year's stuff or even 5 year old weapons when you're 15 years ahead of anybody else's technology at least. Funny how we can find $100 Billion to send to foreign government wars but can't provide healthcare to our constituents.
Anyway... The lyrics are biting. Along with Operation Mindcrime, it lays out truth about our current system of things then and now. If you can't see the decline you haven't been around long enough.
