Culling The Herd lyrics

Great pharaoh of today
Junked up I'm on a day crusade
Oh what a clever charade
Great garden states
Break laws to keep the people down
A self elected clown

Take the children of the nation
Offer them an education
Life or death is no vacation
On a covert operation to
Do what they tell you to do

[Chorus:]
Put em in a uniform
Start culling the herd
Orient the ordinance
Start culling the herd

Religion holds instruction
To be a weapon of mass distraction
Soon they'll make a martyr of you
Engage take the flak
Stretched out on a rack by the pool
For a barrel of crude

Holy mission of a ??ission
Politicians coalition
Are you going?
Yes I am I'll see you in Afghanistan in June
Marching in a platoon
