NEW WORLD ORDER
Words & music by The Whale,
© 2012 Fiat Lux! ASCAP

Yawn, etc…

I awoke to the smell of burning flesh
The dollar bills where green and fresh – consecutive numbers yeah
And barrels of blood that flowed like oil
Spilled out of them boys to the desert soil
You know the TV news didn’t show a thing

They where helping the government
Do it’s thing – creating a New World Order
Do it’s thing – making the world safe for democracy
Do it’s thing – with our soldiers at the border
Do it’s thing – the sheep may safely graze

And all the patriots waving their flag
They screamed at the protestors, “Hey man, you’re a drag!"
Yeah love it or leave it. You better believe it.”
It’s a militariffic New World Order
You best pray to God it don’t come to your border
Because the TV news they won’t show a thing

They’ll be helping the government
Do it’s thing – developing economic opportunities
Do it’s thing – giving tax breaks to the wealthy
Do it’s thing – it’s an odious importunity
Do it’s thing – the sheep may safely graze

So when they ask you to pick up a gun
Rest assured they want some killing done
It’s a grizzly job for measly pay
But the memories last till your dying day
And the TV news they won’t show a thing

They’ll be helping the government
Do it’s thing – busting the labor unions
Do it’s thing – robbing your Social Security
Do it’s thing – and serving the corporate interest
Do it’s thing – the sheep may safely graze
