Who pays for this war?
who pays for this war
does everybody pay for this war
old money family designs
private schools and blood lines
do they pay for this war
how about the corporate execs
and their banker buddies cuttin’ the checks
do they pay for this war

who pays for this war
do the rich people pay for this war
Donald Trump and his confidantes
eatin’ in the thousand dollar restaurants
do they pay for this war
palace suite in the big hotel
how about Halliburton and Bechtel
do they pay for this war

who pays for this war
do the generals pay for this war
spit-polished brass-jockey climbin’ the ranks
Colin Powell and Tommy Franks
do they pay for this war
logical players in the Great Game
career movers stakin’ their claims
do they pay for this war

who pays for this war
I’ll tell you who pays for this war
some homeless Vietnam vet
when they cut off the social safety net
to pay for this war
some single mother in welfare duress
when they tell her she’s just gonna have to do with less
to pay for this war
some teenage innocent who joined in the fight
gonna have nightmares now for the rest of his life
to pay for this war
and a whole lot of people way over there
who got caught in the cross hairs
to pay for this war
that’s who pays for this war

so don’t give me that hypocracy
about makin’ the world safe for democracy
white bread money and brown blood soup
ain’t it always the same that way
the people without any power have to die
for the people with the big powerful lie
