You have got your stranglers and prowlers in soft shoes,
Furniture makers, carpenters too,
Bombers and commandos, all with some lost cause,
Disgruntled workers, immersed in "veritás".

But stealthily, in the land of the free, it's lurking right there:
Most are unaware of
The biggest killer in American history,
And God shed his grace on thee.

Business institutions, universities,
Both are quite the circus where the killer wants his way.
I think of Edward Teller and his moribund reprise,
Then I look to Nevada and I can't believe my eyes.
It's time for him to die!

Most cannot remember minutia learned in school.
It's not there on the blackboard, it's what they don't tell you.
We have got a problem, it starts and ends right here.
It can be defeated, but you've got to face your fear.

We'll join and unite and steady our sight,
Then we'll put it right 'cause it's time to fight
The biggest killer in American history,
And God shed his grace on thee.
