To The Teeth

This song is by Ani DiFranco and appears on the album To The Teeth (2000).

The sun is setting on the century
And we armed to the teeth
We're all working together now
To make our lives mercifully brief
Schoolkids keep trying to teach us
What guns are all about
Confuse liberty with weaponry
And watch your kids act it out
Every year now like christmas
Some boy gets the milkfed suburban blues
Reaches for the available arsenal
And saunters off to make the news
And the women in the middle
Arelearning what poor women have always known
That the edge is closer than you think
Whe your men bring the guns home

Look at where the profits are
That's how you'll find the source
Of the big lie that you and i
Both know so well
In the time it take this cultural
Death wish to run its course
They're gonna make a pretty penny
And then they're all going to hell
He said the chickens all come home to roost
Yeah malcolm forecasted this flood
Are we really gonna sleep through another century
While the rich profit off our blood?
True it may take some doing
To see this undoing through
But in my humble opinion
Here's what i suggest we do

Open fire on hollywood
Open fire on MTV
Open fire on NBC
And CBS and ABC
Open fire on the NRA
And all the lies they told us
Along the way
Open fire on each weapons manufacturer
While he's giving head
To some republican senator

And if i hear one more time
About a fool's right
To his tools of rage
I'm gonna take all my friends
And i'm gonna move to canada
And we're gonna die of old age
