Lets start a war
Lets start a war
What the hell do you all these new bombs are for?
I'm feeling generous today

And I'm itching to make a charity donation
There are some orphan bombs who only want to do their jobs
And need a place to detonate Lets start a war
And give a home to these explosion

Lets start a war I could say that
I'm not smashing piggy banks for all this killing
But I'll just turn away and breathe
In the stream of shopping bags and half-price tags and giveaways

We hold the purse we hold the reins
We can deny these spoiled kids their next allowance
But when they start shoving 'round like bullies on a playground
We shake our pockets for more change Lets start a war

'Cause I'm a sucker for a good fight Lets start a war
Will we say that we're not buying any toys for naughty children?
No we'll just turn away and pass the buck off to the
Governments who kill off all the dissidents

And let our culpability dissolve out in the acid rain
So everyone grab your nuclear brush
And your palette of industrial sludge
And paint a sunrise so dark it will never return

So please stop acting like this comes from somebody else
'Cause we've commissioned this painting ourselves
So just sit back and relax and scatter limbs like Picasso,
Spatter blood like Pollack

Art critics are standing by
To declare this a wonderful sight
Lock and load all your checkbooks, we'll fill this gallery
It's such a classic tapestry

Full of weapons and violence and need
We will hang it in the finest museums of history.
