La ley del cuerpo

「Help save the youth of America. Help save them from themselves. Help save the sun-tanned surfer boys and the Californian girls. When the lights go out in the rest of the World, what do our cousins say? They're playing in the sun and having fun, fun, fun till Daddy takes the gun away. From the Big Church to the Big River and out to the Shining Sea. This is the Land of Opportunity and there's a Monkey Trial on TV. A nation with their freezers full are dancing in their seats while outside another nation is sleeping in the streets. Don't tell me the old, old story, tell me the truth this time, is the Man in the Mask or the Indian an enemy or a friend of mine?

Help save the youth of America. Help save the youth of the world. Help save the boys in uniform, their mothers and their faithful girls. Listen to the voice of the soldier down in the killing zone, talking about the cost of living and the price of bringing him home. They're already shipping the body bags down by the Rio Grande, but you can fight for democracy at home and not in some foreign land. And the fate of the great United States is entwined in the fate of us all, and the incident at Tschernobyl proves the world we live in is very small. And the cities of Europe have burned before and they may yet burn again. And if they do I hope you understand that Washington will burn with them, Omaha will burn with them, Los Alamos will burn with them.」
