Human Sacrifices To False Gods

Soldiers sent to battle
In far away lands
Human sacrifices
To the oil gods
For dollars they'll never see
Nor will their family
Even after they get the news
They aren't coming back

Peasants starving
While the rich
Choke on their wealth
Human sacrifices
To the money gods
For dollars they'll never see
Nor will their family
Even after they get the news
They aren't coming back

Immigrants dying in deserts
And cages
Human sacrifices
To the white gods
For dollars they'll never see
Nor will their family
Even after they get the news
They aren't coming back

Children shot dead
At school
Human sacrifices
To the gun gods
For dollars they'll never see
Nor will their family
Even after they get the news
They aren't coming back
