* "Militia Song lyrics":
"Studied mathematics in Berkely
Now I don't like society
Got me a little old shack in the woods
Gonna mail you out some explosive goods
They say my brother's insane and simple
But he lived in west Texas in a hole in the ground
I'm the only bomber that you'll ever need
Keep the commie Californians from repressing me "
