lyrics

One day our grandkids are gonna look back
at this generation as they’re reading in class
And you know what kind of questions that they’re gonna ask
Why were we such cowards who refused to act 
On a capitalist system that ran on our backs
Put natives away on the worst plots of land
Imprisoned their people disenfranchised the black
Polluted the planet and invaded Iraq 
For some homegrown plot to take down two towers
a bridge,a building,some firefighters
an empty fucking hallway in the pentagon
Then they asked us all which side we were on
Why we rained down missiles shot from a drone
Blowing up kids sitting innocent inside of their homes
Waging wars that can never be won
Securing resources.. defending freedom  

Funny how the global war on terror happened to be in an oil rich desert 

they’ll think we were less conscious or just less evolved
As they study conservative utilitarian thought
they’ll read about the contras read all about the plot
to replace elected leaders with puppets to stop
their economic development,replace them with products
to trade at ease with the purpose of profit
to take their water,their food,and their gold
they created these countries to be bought and sold They created these countries under control

They’ll wonder why we bailed out the banks for taking our houses
didn’t notice the elite taking the whole country hostage
the oil spills, the lead in the water
the state police sanctioned for slaughter
And the Trump election shit they won’t even mention it
Like how nobody knows who was the 40th President
how could we elect these fucking degenerates
with some cowboy version of justice and politics
they’ll say our collapse was a long time coming
like how we studied the history,the fall of the Romans
the Last thing they’ll wonder is why we pardoned the Nazi’s 
put them in NASA didn’t tell anybody
