"5.45" as written by and Dave/burnham Allen....
How can I sit and eat my tea
With all that blood flowing from the television.
At a quarter to six
I watch the news
Eatingeating all my food
As I sit watching the red spot
In the egg which looks like
All the blood you don't see on the television.

Still body nowno movement yet
Five men lie die flat on their backs
Were they born to lie in state
Defend the ever stagnate great?

Down on the street assassinate
All of them look so desperate
Declared blood war on the bourgeois state

Watch new blood on the 18 inch screen
The corpse is a new personality
Ionic charge gives immortality
The corpse is a new personality

Down on the street assassinate
All of them look so desperate
Declared blood war on the bourgeois state

Watch new blood on the 18 inch screen

The corpse is a new personality
Watch new blood on the 18 inch screen
The corpse is a new personality
Watch new blood on the 18 inch screen
The corpse is a new personality
Watch new blood on the 18 inch screen
The corpse is a new personality
Watch new blood on the 18 inch screen
The corpse is a new personality

Guerilla war struggle is a new entertainment
Guerilla war struggle is a new entertainment
Guerilla war struggle is a new entertainment
Guerilla war struggle is a new entertainment
Guerilla war struggle is a new entertainment
Guerilla war struggle is a new entertainment
Guerilla war struggle is a new entertainment
Guerilla war struggle is a new entertainment

Down on the street assassinate
All of them look so desperate
Declared blood war on the bourgeois state

    General CommentI think it is more logical that 5.45 refers to a quarter to six. "At a quarter to six, I watch the news"

    General CommentFor young people (like me..) this song doesn't feel very "revolutionary", how often isn't TV bashed these days? But going back to when it was written one realizes that King and co were on to something essential. unfortunately, the tendencies described in the song have only intensified with time. The corpse, the guerilla war struggle, is entertainment more than ever before.

    General CommentCould it be possible, that the 5.45 has something to do with World war 2? You know the line ".. Seit 5:45 wird zurückgeschossen" (Since 5.45, we are shooting back at them) ..
