lyrics

WAKE UP, NEW YORK!

I need my uniform
just give it back I think that it will fit again
There's no emotional confusion, indecision
I'm an ardent man
We're not the one's who need to think

You keep your whiskey shot
I've got a lot invested in this new brigade
It's no illusionary, visionary thing
we've just the world to save
We've got this island on the brink

You think you've seen it all
but you've never been outside
your meager head
I'm seeing red

We'll be storming through
every street and avenue

Tuesday we've got it made
it's you and I who've played our final rondezvous
Don't bite a thing they cook
they're all just crooks
there's propaganda in that stew
We're not the one's who need to think

Regards to the peace corps
I've got no more time to waste in fractious dialogue
Someday you'll listen up
oh listen up!
Invaders, use a casual nod
We've got this island on the brink

You think you've seen it all
but you've never been outside
the people's lawn
you best be gone

We'll be storming through
every street and avenue

Wake up New York!
