Is it a war if only one side shows up?

Oh what the hell
Oh what the hell

Everyone has a theory
About why the world is so very bad
So evil, oh so scary

Blame it on your favorite creed
Race, or ideology
Blame it on your favorite church,
The Jews, or Freemasonry

Blame it on the fall of man
Or the ignoble heritage
Of chimpanzees and their uncouth ways
So lately turned to men

Blame it on modernity
The fall of faith in god
Blame it on the family
the rule of the unsparing rod

Blame it on tradition
Blame it on new waves
Blame it on drugs and alcohol
Blame it on the babes

Blame it on the music
Blame it on tv
Blame it on the government
Blame it on conspiracy

Blame it on democracy (yes!)
Blame it on elites
Blame it on the apathy
Blame it on the sheep

Blame it on the Devil
and the demons of his court
Blame it on john jay, blame it on hort

Blame it on God
Blame it on His absence
Blame it on the West
Blame it on Manhattan

Or sit with me
And drink your brew
And contemplate the marriage
Of timid, modest mice of men
with beasts so hail and savage

The former tame, without belief
The latter full of pride
Passionate intensity
for devouring their bride

The run of men, on the receiving end
Believe not in themselves
Nor dare to dream of anything
Beyond their small, inoffensive claims

The ones on top, astride this lot
On the pitching end
Embrace their mate
Take their due
Rule the empty battlefield
and over Nothing, Celebrate

The field is cleared
Without a drop
No enemy on the wing
For all that's needed for bad to win
Is for good to believe in Nothing
