The Lyrics

This song is about all the armchair generals who never served but think/know all the answers. When the Cold War ended peacefully, I thought mankind had learned a lesson. At the same time the US invaded Panama on a totally unrelated issue and what needed to be done was done with not much of a media circus at all. That all changed with Desert Storm in 1991. Now just like that episode in the original STAR TREK, war has become so neat and painless to most Americans there's no reason to stop doing it. iraq, Afghanistan, Haiti, Syria, Libya, etc. - it's all become a modern Roman gladiator game thanks to TV and later the internet. Not to mention the even less 'painless' (but still devastating) effects of the new method of cyberwar.
Your TV's on and you're are home
Your mind is not your own
Your heart pounds, your ding-dong swells
The sight of war is what you dig

You drink beer, oh, and you cheer
Clap your hands like a chimp
Your eyes are fixed, you flap your yap
You never served, you don't know crap

Woah, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
You know you're gonna have to face it, you're addicted to war

You wave your flag at the Big Screen
Afghanistan, Somalia, Haiti
Iraq, Yugoslavia
Rwanda, Ukraine, and Libya too

A one track mind, that's what you are
Oblivion is all you crave
'Kick Arab ass! Nuke them all!'
You're ignorate and dumb

Woah, you like to claim that you're against all this stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
You know you really truly love it, you're addicted to war

Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war

Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war

You're addicted to war
You're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war

Might as well face it
Might as well face it
Might as well face it
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Ooh, yeah

Thinking 'Top Gun'is solid fact
To you, it's just a game
You got shit on your face
Cheerleader, big disgrace

Whoa, you like to say that you rally hate all this stuff, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough
You know you're gonna have to face it, you're addicted to war

Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war

Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war

Might as well face it
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war

Might as well face it
Might as well face it
Might as well face it
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
Might as well face it, you're addicted to war
