 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

We been through mass destruction once but once was not enough
We said "we want a second chance" and all they say is "tough"

A world where science went too far, there's no way to survive
Why can't we get this thing straightened out 'cause I wanna stay alive

They burned and bombed the east and north and there's no place left to go
The Sun Belt's overcrowded so let's annex Mexico

The peso's only worth a dime but they've got all that land
There's no need for a civil war, we know they'll understand, right?

Is that how you like it?

Hah, factories left unattended, crumbling to the ground
We tried to keep them running but there's no more oil around

We used it all to fight a war that neither side could win
Hah, well, Vietnam was Little League compared to where we've been

Now we live in caves and huts and we don't have pay TV
And everyone is signing up for the newest industry

Standard oil goes solar power, all try to make a buck
I'll sit around, smoke cigarettes and I'll babble, "what the f*ck?"

That's how I like it

Sign up, newest industry
The newest industry
We'll sign up for the newest industry
Yeah, we'll sign up
For the newest industry
Yeah, we'll sign up

Oh, oh, oh
