Welcome to the year 2000, minus 25Oh say, can you smell ’er for the smoke? God’s still up there laughin’So he’s gotta be aliveWho says he can’t take a dirty joke? Power is and power does and power slips awayIt’s so easy to abuse.Who’da thought them arabs woulda bought the usaJust to give it to the jews? Chorus:Singin’ crime still don’t payJust like it used to(just like it used to)And time slips away ’til you die(slips away ’til you die)You know but I don’t give a damnWhen I choose to(when I choose to)And you know but it don’t hurt so badWhen you’re high(when you’re high)Oh say does the future of the homesick and the braveEven matter anymoreThere ain’t no more reason for them boys to run away nowThan there was the fight beforeAnd could you tell me why the hell we tried to win back in the warWhat we wasted in the last? Might just ain’t as righteous as it used to be beforeWhen your army’s out of gasChorus:Singin’ crime still don’t payJust like it used to(just like it used to)And time slips away ’til you die(slips away ’til you die)You know but I don’t give a damnWhen I choose to(when I choose to)And you know but it don’t hurt so badWhen you’re high(when you’re high)
