War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing.
Well that’s the way it appears to me,
but it’s great for the economy
as we’re building up this empire society.
Well the media’s profiting from the world trade towers tumbling.
They’re selling their primetime ads on this patriotic screen.
They’re selling inaccuras, their lies and propaganda.
Rebroadcasting images from FOX, feed it to America through the idiot box.
Said War, what is it good for?

Well it’s great for big business and building up the system, putting money in the pockets of the dirty politicians, said its great for steel and lumbering and building up this economy, and allowing us to keep our obsessions, bringing us out of this recession.
It’s great for plane and automakers, dropping the bombs that keep us in danger. Violence is ripe this year, wouldn’t it be great if we could market fear. We’ve got to clothe and house and feed and clean the military, we’ve got to give the housing to their workers and their families.

War, is an industry.
War, is part of the economy,
War, aint about diplomacy,
It’s about our financial security.

American builders with their contracts,
Building up new homes that we’re bombing in Iraq.
We’ve got the moral-less weapon manufactures,
Creating new disease and spreading the disasters.
Swollen bellies hide behind the curtain,
Filling up the tankers for Halliburton.
The media propagating lies,
Coming up with the new compromise.

War, is an industry.
War, is part of the economy,
War, aint about diplomacy,
It’s about our financial security.
