They’re gonna keep me safe
Up on the airplane
By stealing my face cream
And putting me through the cancer machine

Thank God for the government
To bring us bombs and war
Thank God for the government
To keep us dumb and poor

They’re gonna give me rules
To help me obey
Tell me the good things
I can think and say
They’re gonna give me the news
So I know what to fear
They’re gonna choose
What I can see and hear

Thank God for the government
To bring us bombs and war
Thank God for the government
To keep us stupid and poor
Thank God for our leaders
Who sing like whores
Make our lives a living hell
And have us begging for more

Please keep me safe from the hell
That I pay taxes to create
And please protect me from the guns
That you sell and make

I thank God for those special humans
Who educate me
And thank the Lord for elected leaders
Who give me a place to be

Thank God for the government
To keep us always at war
And for telling us all the reasons
Why we must be divided and torn
