'Teeth' Lyrics

Thanks to Riotgrrl for providing these lyrics ;)

To The Teeth. First known performance : June 14, 1999

The sun is setting on the century and we are armed to the teeth. We're all working together now to make our lives mercifully brief. And school kids keep trying to teach us what guns are all about. Confused liberty with weaponry and watch your kids act it out. And every year now like Christmas some boy gets the milk fed suburban blues reaches for the available arsenal and saunters off to make the news. And the women in the middle are learning what poor women have always known that the edge is closer than you think when the men bring the guns home. Look at where the profits are that's how you'll find the source of the big lie that you and I both know so well. By the time it takes this cultural death wish to run it's course, they're gonna to make a pretty penny and then they're going to hell. He said the chickens all come home to roost. Malcolm forecasted this flood. Are we really going to sleep through another century while the rich profit off our blood? Yeah, it may take some doing to see this undoing through. But in my humble opinion, here's what i suggest we do. Open fire on Hollywood... Open fire on MTV. Open fire on NBC and CBS and ABC. Open fire on the NRA and all the lies they told us along the way. Open fire on each weapons manufacturer while he's giving head to some Republican Senator. and if I and if I hear one more time about a fool's right to his tools of rage, I'm gonna take all my friends and I'm going to move to Canada and we're going to die of old age.......
