Lyrics of Boom!

I've been walking through your streets,
Where all you money's earning,
Where all your building's crying,
And clueless neckties working,
Revolving fake lawn houses,
Housing all your fears,
Desensitized by tv,
Overbearing advertising,
God of consumerism,
And all your crooked pictures,
Looking good, mirrorism,
Filtering information,
For the public eye,
Designed for profiteering,
Your neighboor, what a guy.

Boom, boom, boom, boom,
Every time you drop the bomb,
You kill the God your child has born.
Boom, boom, boom, boom.

Modern globalization,
Coupled with condemnations,
Unnecessary death,
Matador corporations,
Puppeting your frustrations,
With the blinded flag,
Manufacturing consent
Is the name of the game,
The bottom line is money,
Nobody gives a fuck.
4000 hungry children die per hour,
From starvation,
While billions spent on bombs,
Create death showers.

Boom, boom, boom, boom,
Every time you drop the bomb,
You kill the God your child has born.
Boom, boom, boom, boom
Boom/boom/boom/boom/boom/boom/boom

Why, why, why, why must we kill, kill, kill, kill, our own, own, own, own kind...

Boom, boom, boom, boom,
Every time you drop the bomb,
You kill the God your child has born.
Boom, boom, boom, boom
Boom/boom/boom/boom/boom/boom/boom/boom
Every time you drop the bomb.


Comments




'Boom!' is a protest song from System of a Down's CD 'Steal This Album!'. The song describes the uselessness of bombs and warfare, and compares how thousands can die from starvation and poverty when billions are spent creating bombs and weaponry. It also links the use of military action with corporate globalization and quotes the title of one of Noam Chomsky's books: 'Manufacturing Consent' is the name of their game.', which is a reference to the media's role in war. The bridge of the song is based on the movement 'Mars, The Bringer of War' from Gustav Holst's orchestral suite The Planets.
