In Memorium

Our grandfathers fought for our freedom
Now we pay retirement homes to feed'em
They have dogs who help them to see
But their eyesight was sharp in 1943
Now the Germans are our allies
Their corporations help our corporations to capitalize
But our grandfathers looked straight in their eyes
And with a squeeze of the trigger condemned them to die
And it's tough to wrap your head around

Our uncles fought the communists
Now they beg us, beg us not to enlist
It's hard to know what Mars has in store
But we won't be a generation without war
Now we raise a glass to freedom in memorium
