White lace and pantyhose for the taking I always knew that I, I was a fucking lie So don your denim hide, G string right at your side Go on and let it out I need to let it out I need to express this side I feel fucking fake To you this is a joke But it's my life
Revolution Revolution We gonna burn city hall Revolution Revolution We gonna burn city hall Revolution oh no Revolution oh no Armageddon Go! Organize it Organize it Organize it et al Organize it Organize it Organize it et al Revolution oh no Revolution oh no Armageddon Go! Bow down bow down Bow down on your ass Get some get some Get some of his wrath Revolution oh no Revolution oh no Armageddon Go! He rides he rides He rides on volcanic ash Repent repent It's gonna be a blood bath Revolution oh no Revolution oh no Armageddon Go!
I wasn't on a tractor I was on a midnight train Just another burned out hipster trying to make it to L.A. I saw him on the subway and I ain't afraid to say When I saw that banjo on his back we started jamming right away Hey redneck rodeo! Bela Fleck (Earl Scruggs, Charlie T.) is my new cash cow Hey redneck rodeo! Go rustle up some steer Hey redneck rodeo! Get yourself some bluegrass know how Hey redneck rodeo! Cause banjo's are cool now I asked him where he came from and he stammered Idaho Out yonder past the Southwest with the wolves and buffalo I plugged in my guitar and asked him kindly if you please Won't you take my hand and join my band we'll fucking rock out 1 2 3

We see the world we see the lies We heard it fucking loud As our friends fade into memories, landscape, what's around? Broken homes and crooked bars, white walls, booze, and trailer parks When the ghost has left the bones I'll scream it one last time We See The Lies We see the lies inside I know nothing has changed and nothing ever will So long as we got apathy and time to kill Let the cracks spread asphalt lines to the gutter's and the blind Never knowing we once lived in these city lights We see the world We see the lies We hear it loud
