    There's a prophet on a mountain, and he's making up dinner
    With long division and writing crop
    Anybody can feel like a winner when it's served up piping hot
    But the people aren't looking for a handout
    They're America's working corps
    Can this be what they voted for?
    Let them eat war (ah, ah-ah, ah)
    Let them eat war
    That's how to ration the poor
    Let them eat war (ah, ah-ah, ah)
    Let them eat war
    There's an urgent need to feed
    Declining pride
    From the force to the union shops
    The war economy is making new jobs
    But the people who benefit most
    Are breaking bread with their benevolent hosts
    Who never stole from the rich to give to the poor
    All they ever gave to them was a war
    And a foreign enemy to deplore
    Let them eat war (ah, ah-ah, ah)
    Let them eat war
    That's how to ration the poor
    Let them eat war (ah, ah-ah, ah)
    Let them eat war
    There's an urgent need to feed
    Declining pride
    We've got to kill 'em and eat 'em before they reach for their checks
    Squeeze some blue collars, let them bleed from their necks
    Seize a few dollars from the people who sweat
    'Cause it's freedom or death, and they won't question it (they won't question it)
    At a job site, the boss is godlike
    Conditioned workhorses park at a stoplight
    Seasoned vets with their feet in nets
    A stone's throw away from a rock fight
    But not tonight
    here comes another ration
    (Feed 'em death) 'cause they're the finest in the nation
    (Feed 'em death) but there's nothing left to feed 'em with
    'Cause it's freedom or it's death
    Let them eat war (ah, ah-ah, ah)
    Let them eat war
    That's how to ration the poor
    Let them eat war (ah, ah-ah, ah)
    Let them eat war
    There's an urgent need to feed

    Nothing in particular
    Oh, the nostalgia. I saw Bad Religion play London's Astoria when they were touring the album this is taken from.
