"The Greatest Generation"

Tell your friends and neighbors we need their support
Itís the cause of freedom that the world calls them to
And if they join the fight and then sacrifice their lives
Weíll send a thousand dollars off to you

My dad was from the greatest generation
Kept the world safe for everyone is what we're told
They only had to sacrifice their children
Trade their only legacy for a small amount of gold

Just for asking questions and reading the brochure
We give a neat computer game at no real cost to you
Rated for the teenage mind with very little blood
Teach them killings fine if you change your point of view

We were from the greatest generation
Kept the world safe for democracy we're told
Now we have to sacrifice our children
Trade our only legacy for a small amount of gold

Get yourself a better job and be part of something new
Why stay in poverty when we offer so much more
A wise man once said Jesus donít like killing
It doesnít really matter who itís for

This might be the greatest generation
The world is safe from whoever bothers us today
You only have to sacrifice your children's children's children
Thirty coins of silver is a small price to pay
