Lyrics
AMERICAN WARS

His toys on the floor
His heart on his sleeve
He's calling to daddy
Oh please do not leave

But daddy's signed up
And now he must go
To far away lands
He'll soon come to know

Chorus
American wars
The profit machine
Destroyer of life
Conscience unclean
His dad will be killed
But that is ok
The war machine
Must have its own way

The coffin all draped
With stars and stripes
Young child is crying
But that is all right

American dreams
All drenched in blood
Mountains of cash
Awash in a flood

(repeat chorus)

BRIDGE
Eisenhower
Gave us his warning
MIC power
Populace yawning

(repeat chorus)
