Weapons of mass destruction

My dad came into my room holding his hat
I knew he was leavin, sat on my bed told me some facts
Son
I have a duty callin on me
You'n 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 your mama a kiss
then I had to say goodbye

In the morning I woke mama with a kiss on each eyelid
Even though I'm only a kid, certain things can't be hid
Mama grabbed me, held me like I was made of gold
but left her inner stories untold
I said
Mama, it'll be allright, when daddy comes home
tonight

Chorus:
Whether long range weapon or suicide bomb
Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you're soaraway sun or BBC 1
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruct-
You could-a-caucasian or a poor asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalisation
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether Haliburton, Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction
We need to find courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction

The chin under my skin is explodin again
I'm getting stress from some other children, I'm holding it in
We takin sides like a politician an if I get friction
We get to fighting I defend my dad
He's the best of all men
An whatever he's doing, he's doin the right thing
It's frightening, but it makes me mad
Why do all of these people seem to hate my dad ?
An if that aint enough, now I got these spots
I go to sleep every night with my stomach in knots
And what's more I can hear mama next door
Explore the radio for reports of war
An all we ever seems 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
An he would be proud of me
If my daddy came home tonight

My story stops here, let's be clear
this scenario is happenin everywhere
an you ain't goin to nirvana or far-vana
You comin right back here to live out your karma
with even more drama than previously...
seriously
Just how many centuries have we been waitin 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
