Mass Destruction

This song is by Faithless and appears on the album No Roots (2004).

My dad came into my room holding his hat
I knew he was leaving
He sat on my bed told me some facts
Son, I have the duty, calling on me
You and your sister be brave my little soldier
And don't forget all I told ya
You're the mister of the house now remember this
And when you wake up in the morning give yer momma a kiss
Then I had to say goodbye
In the morning woke momma with a kiss on each eyelid
Even though I'm only a kid
Certain things can't be hid
Momma grabbed me
Held me like I was made of gold
But left her inner stories untold
I said, momma it will be alright
When daddy comes home, tonight

Whether long range weapon or suicide bomber
Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you're soar-away Sun or BBC1
Information is a weapon of mass destruct
You're called Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction

Whether Halliburton, Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction
We need to find the courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction

The skin under my chin is exploding again
I'm getting stress from some other children
I'm holding it in
We taking sides like a politician
And if I get friction we get to fighting
I defend my dad he's the best of all men
And whatever he's doing he's doing the right thing
It's frightening, but it makes me mad
Why do all of these people seem to hate my dad?
And if that ain't enough now I get these spots
I go to sleep every night with my stomach in knots
And what's more, I can hear momma next door
Explore the radio for reports of war
And all we ever seem to do is hide the tears
Seems like daddy been gone for years
But he was right, now I'm geared up for the fight
And he would be proud of me
My daddy came home tonight
Listen real keenly

Whether long range weapon or suicide bomber
Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you're soar-away Sun or BBC1
Information is a weapon of mass destruct
You're called Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction

Whether Halliburton, Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction
We need to find the courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction

My story stops here, lets be clear
This scenario is happening everywhere
And you ain't going to nirvana or far-vana
You're coming right back here to live out your karma
With even more drama than previously, seriously
Just how many centuries have we been waiting for someone else to make us free?
And we refuse to see
That people overseas suffer just like we
Bad leadership and ego's unfettered and free
Who feed on the people they're supposed to lead
I don't need good people to pray and wait
For the lord to make it all straight
There's only now, do it right
'Cos I don't want your daddy, leaving home tonight
