About the song
The song was written on the premise that knowledge of "the bombs" devastation, and the desire to wield it, is an incredibly magnified version
of the same driving force that sent a man into an Amish school house to kill children who are taught to harm nothing.
If you need to kill someone, kill yourself.
Lyrics
With millions of subjects who have not
He’s living a dream with nearly everything he wants
Something’s missing a thing he hasn’t got
People go hungry Elvis wants the bomb

He’s left the building but not alone
Took five children who would harm no one
Something’s missing courage gut and bone
At the thirty-eighth parallel Elvis wants the bomb

Elvis wants power and prestige
What he gets a psychotic disease
Suicide in the bargaining
Elvis would be king

Towers of humanity air coaches with more
2001 nearly three thousand gone
1945 ten thousand score
Collateral damage Elvis wants the bomb

Elvis wants power and prestige
What he gets a psychotic disease
Suicide in the bargaining
Elvis would be king

Proliferation should be passe
Victor and victimized wish they were all gone
Something’s missing Third-world World War
Hunger for power Elvis wants the bomb

Elvis wants power and prestige
What he gets a psychotic disease
Suicide in the bargaining
Elvis would be king
