Lyrics

MC5

Screeching useless martyrs hanging naked upon the cross
They would have you believe the lies they shriek that all is lost
Forget their logical desperation, utilize your imagination
The future's here right now if you're willing to pay the cost
The power crazy leaders who control your very fate
They steal your will, twist your life and sell your soul away
If you're drifting or wandering lost,
You're the perfect target for the double cross

Freedom's yours right now,
If you rule your own destiny
Here they come, cosmopolitan auto man
Here they plunder, interstellar diplomats
Some say the truth is meant to be hidden
Others maintain nothing is forbidden

The key to the mystery
And our ? mind explodes in a post atomic dawn
The future breaks like a tidal wave, engulfing everyone
Confusion and chaos, trauma of birth
A strange new day for the people of the Earth
Traditions, burned away by the rising sun
