Depleted uranium is used on the ends of bullets
And on the ends of shells because it is so hard
Almost any armament is vulnerable
To something that is tipped with depleted uranium
In the cities and towns of Afghanistan
In the heart of the Balkans, the heart of Iraq
Not your Grandfather?s style of deadly munitions
It?s silent and deadly years after the mission
Depleted uranium is a war crime
Depleted uranium is a war crime
Gonna cut through their armor, then cut through your lungs
If you make it home alive, you'll still die young
A greedy gang of liars, yeah, we've seen it all before
A moneymaking scheme led by war-profiteering whores
Depleted uranium is a war crime
Depleted uranium is a war crime
They were throwing it away
Until they figured out they could use it for armament
Half-life, 4.5 billion
Half-life, you'll waste away
Half-life, 4.5 billion
Half-life, you'll waste a
we've heard their lies before and we know they're lying again
Feels like a deja vu of Agent Orange and Vietnam
Weaponry so sadistic, it is hard to comprehend
War profits surge with every breath by Uncle Sam
Depleted uranium is a war crime
Depleted uranium is a war crime
Depleted uranium is a war crime
We went to a hospital in Southern Iraq
And a woman was there with a very deformed child
And her husband had been in the Iraqi Army
And had been in the battles in Southern Iraq
And came home and they produced a baby
That was, very severe malformations
Both the Leukemia rates in children
And malformations at birth had increased by six hundred percent
And it was clearly an epidemic where all this do had been dumped
It becomes a dust that can be inhaled
And infect the blood stream and the rest of the body
And it was the opinion of the doctors there
That this was caused by depleted uranium
They simply saw this as being a direct result
Of the war by the United States
Half-life, 4.5 billion
Half-life, we waste away
Half-life, 4.5 billion
Half-life, we waste away
Half-life, 4.5 billion
Half-life, we waste away
Half-life, 4.5 billion
Half-life, we waste away
The doctor said, ?Women at the time of birth
Don't ask if it?s a boy or a girl, they ask, 'Is it normal?'?
The military denies first and then after the evidence builds to the point
Where they can no longer deny, then they do the research
That's what happened in the Vietnam era around Agent Orange
And I suspect and I'm worried that that's what will happen this time
