Operation Ivy Freeze Up Lyrics

Last updated: 10/22/2007 11:00:00 AM

Empty factories to the east and all our waste
The shape of things that came shows on the broken workers face
To the west you'll find our silicon promised lands where
Machines replace our minds for systematic profit plans
The course of human progress staggers like a drunk
Its steps are quick and heavy and its mind is slow and blunt
I look for optimism but I just don't know
Its seeds are planted in a poison place where nothing grows

Its 1989 stand up and take a look around
Weathers bitter tension it seems is sinking down
Drunk with power and fighting one another
Every hour shows the winter getting harder
Theres a freeze up
(theres a freeze up coming)
Theres a freeze up
(freeze up coming)
Theres a freeze up
(theres a freeze up coming)
Theres a freeze up coming

One nation stands the tallest radiating blinding light
Plastic and fluorescent energy robbing us of sight
Set in our way content with our decay
We wave the flag of freedom as we conquer and invade
Ever ask yourself wheres my place in this hell
But no ones there to tell you cause they don't know that themselves
The well rehearsed lines from our elated politicians
No longer offer solace we can see the self destruction

Its 1989 stand up and take a look around
Weathers bitter tension it seems is sinking down
Drunk with power and fighting one another
Every hour shows the winter getting harder
Theres a freeze up
(theres a freeze up coming)
Theres a freeze up
(freeze up coming)
Theres a freeze up
(theres a freeze up coming)
Theres a freeze up coming

*guitar solo*

Just one political song
Just one political song to drop into the list that stretches years and years long
Just one political song
Just one political song to drop into the list that stretches years and years long
Static and division is increasing like a storm
We are sheltered
We are forewarned
Nothing can be changed except ourselves
Nothing can be changed except ourselves

Theres a freeze up
Theres a freeze up coming
Theres a freeze up
Theres a freeze up coming
Theres a freeze up
(theres a freeze up coming)
Theres a freeze up
(freeze up coming)
Theres a freeze up
(theres a freeze up coming)
Theres a freeze up coming
