Mass Destruction lyrics

Facebook This song by Faithless was released in May 2004 and written during the anti-war protests in London in 2003, as a reaction to Britain and America declaring war on Iraq. Although the song’s lyrics deal with anti-war and anti-racism sentiment, it’s more generally about ignorance and how society can and should attack it.

ChorusWhether long range weapon or suicide bomb
A wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction

Whether you're soaraway Sun or BBC One
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruct


You coulda Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction

Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction


Verse 1My dad came into my room holding his hat
I knew he was leaving, he sat on my bed told me some facts.
Son, I have the duty, calling on me
You and your sister be brave my little soldier
And don't forget all I told ya
You're the mister of the house now, remember this
And when you wake up in the morning give ya momma a kiss
Then I had to say goodbye
In the morning woke momma with a kiss on each eyelid
Even though I'm only a kid
Certain things can't be hid
Momma grabbed me
Held me like I was made of gold
But left her inner stories untold
I said, momma it'll be alright
When daddy comes home, tonight

ChorusWhether long range weapon or suicide bomber
Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you're Soaraway Sun or BBC 1
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruct

You coulda Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction

Whether Halliburton, Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction

We need to find courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction


Verse 2The skin under my chin is exploding again.
I'm getting stress from some other children
I'm holding it in.
We taking sides like a politician
And if i get friction we get to fighting.
I'll defend my dad he's the best of all men
and whatever he's doing he's doing the right thing.
It's frightening, but it makes me mad,
Why do all of these people seem to hate my dad?
And if that ain't enough now I get these spots.
I go to sleep every night with my stomache in knots
And what's more, i can hear momma next door
Explore the radio for reports of war.
And all we ever seem to do is hide the tears.
Seems like daddy been gone for years.

But he was right, now i'm geared up for the fight
and he would be proud of me.

ChorusWhether long range weapon or suicide bomb
A wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you're soaraway Sun or BBC 1
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruct

You coulda Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction

Whether Halliburton, Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction
We need to find courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction

Verse 3My story stops here, lets be clear.
This scenario is happening everywhere.
And you ain't going to nirvana or far-vana,
you're coming right back here to live out your karma.

With even more drama than previously, seriously.
Just how many centuries have we been waiting
For someone else to make us free?
And we refuse to see
that people overseas suffer just like we:
Bad leadership and egos unfettered and free
Who feed on the people they're supposed to lead
I don't need good people to pray and wait
For the lord to make it all straight
There's only now, do it right
'Cause I don't want your daddy leaving home tonight

ChorusWhether long range weapon or suicide bomb
A wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you're soaraway Sun or BBC 1
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruct

You coulda Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction

Whether Halliburton, Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction
We need to find courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction
