    You've got the mouth of a she wolf
    Inside the mask of an innocent lamb
    You say your heart is all compassion
    But there's just a flat line on your cardiogram

    Yet you always made a profit baby
    If it was a famine or a feast

    Yes, I'm the soul of indiscretion,
    I was cursed with x-ray vision,
    I could see right through all the lies you told,
    When you smiled for the television

    And you can see the coming battle
    You pray the drums will never cease
    And you may win this war that's coming
    But would you tolerate the peace?

    Investing in munitions
    And those little cotton flags
    Invest in wooden caskets
    In guns and body bags, guns and body bags

    Your daddy was a businessman
    And it always made good sense
    You know the war can make you rich my friend
    In dollars, pounds and cents

    In the temple that was Mammon's
    You were ordained the parish priest
    Yes you may win this coming battle
    But could you tolerate the peace?

    Invest in deadly weapons
    And those little cotton flags
    Invest in wooden caskets
    In guns and body bags
    You're invested in oppression
    Investing in corruption
    Invest in every tyranny
    And the whole world's destruction

    I imagine there's a future
    When all the earthly wars are over
    You may find yourself just standing there
    On the white cliffs of Dover

    You may ask, what does it profit a man
    To gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul?
    Is that your body you see on the rocks below
    As the tide begins to roll?

    And you invested in this prison
    From which you never got released
    You may have won this war we're fighting
    But would you tolerate the peace?
