newest industry lyrics – husker du

we been through m*ss 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?

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
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
