lyrics

Airstrip One

Let’s talk about the good old days
Not the future we’re afraid to face
Because the past is such a peaceful place

Remember when you ruled the waves
Who were the masters, who were the slaves
Who was holding all the gold in that golden age

Calling Airstrip One
Hey! Hey! Citizen!
Do you know what you’ve done
Hey! Hey! What’s done is done
The finest hour for no one


It’s such a simple choice, stay or go
true identity, common enemy
Where’s the power who’s in control
slogans on the side, how we simplify
Nameless anger never changed the way the wind blows
Who told you you could take yourself away
see the swarm, the tide, how they jeopardize
The power players with their nameless game
in a little time, could be you
You only get the choice they let you make

Calling Airstrip One
Hey! Hey! Citizen!
Do you know what you’ve done
Hey! Hey! What’s done is done
The finest hour for no one

Were you fighting for the right side
Did you throw away your lifeline
Did you wake up on the wrong side of a burning bed
Were you fighting for the right side
Did you throw away your lifeline
Fuck the future for the right lie

Calling Airstrip One
Hey! Hey! Citizen!
Do you know what you’ve done
Hey! Hey! What’s done is done
The finest hour for no one

Were you fighting for the right side
Did you throw away your lifeline
Did you wake up on the wrong side of a burning bed
Were you fighting for the right side
Did you throw away your lifeline
Fuck the future for the right lie
