Paxton's songs can be emotionally effective and cover a wide range of topics, from the serious and profound to the lighthearted and comical. "What Did You Learn in School Today?" mocks the way children are often taught nationalism and a subservience to authority. "Jimmy Newman" is the story of a dying soldier and "My Son John" is a song about a soldier who comes back home and cannot even begin to describe what he has been through. "Beau John" is a song derived from the Civil Rights Movement about taking a stand against racial injustice . "A Thousand Years" tells the tale of Neo-Nazi uprising, and "Train for Auschwitz" is about the Holocaust . "On the Road from Srebrenica" is about Bosnian Muslims who were killed in a 1995 massacre in Bosnia and Herzegovina . "The Bravest" is a song about the firefighters who died while trying to save others on September 11, 2001 . Then there are Paxton's "short shelf life songs", which are topical songs about current events and things in the news. They include: "In Florida", about the 2000 election ; "Without DeLay", a song about the former congressman ; "Bobbitt", about John and Lorena Bobbitt ; "Little Bitty Gun", which lampoons Nancy Reagan ; "I'm Changing My Name to Chrysler", about the federal loan guarantee to Chrysler in 1979 (which was rewritten in 2008 as "I Am Changing My Name to Fannie Mae" [4] about the 700 billion dollar "bailout of the . financial system" ); " The Ballad of Spiro Agnew " (mocking the short career and the former-Vice President's resignation), and "Lyndon Johnson Told the Nation" (about the Vietnam War, which became "George W. Told the Nation" [5] in 2007 to lampoon the 2003 invasion of Iraq).
