Only Outlaws Will Be Free


peak oil war peace
1 exxon dees
We got missiles in their silos. – We got tridents in the sea.
We got cluster bombs & napalm, every wmd.
We got landmines, 50mms, DU weaponry
What ain't we got? – An enemy.

We got Halliburton marking up the corporation store.
We got Texaco & Exxon from Kuwait to Ecuador!
We got submarines, & battleships, and carriers off shore.
What ain't we got? – We ain't got war!

I know some natural gas in Turkmenistan we could try for.
I know an oil company or 2 or 3 or 4 or more I would die for.

There is nothing like a war.
Nothing in the world !
There is nothing we adore
that is anything like a war!

We got Karl Rove & Rummy, both egomaniacs
We got Ashcroft, Cheney, Condi and propriety they lack,
We got Blackhawk helicopters swarming in a pack.
What ain't we got? Pre-empt attack!

I know a country of infidels who don't believe in Jesus where we should be crusading...
I know a country or 2 or 3 or 4 or more with gas and oil & uranium ore,
Who's going to convert to the euro, therefore
our navy and marines who are offshore should be invading.

There is nothing like a war.
Nothing in the world.
There is nothing we adore
that is anything like a war.

There are no books like a war.
And nothing looks like a war.
There are no games like a war
Or any dames like a war.
And nothing acts like a war
Or attracts like a war.
There ain't a thing wrong with corporate need
That can't be cured by corporate greed
A good ole gas & oil, US tyranny war.
