"Party at Ground Zero" as written by John Norwood Fisher, Kendall Rey Jones and Angelo Christopher Moore....
Party at ground zero
A "B" movie starring you
And the world will turn to flowing
Pink vapor stew

Please do not fear 'cause Fishbone is here to say (say what?)
Just have a good time, the stop sign is far away
The toilet has flushed and green lights are a ghost
And drop drills will be extinct
Speed Racer cloud has come
They know not what they've done
Sin has just won
And the Earth is a crumb

Johnny, go get your gun, for the commies are in our hemisphere today
Ivan, go fly your MiG, for the Yankee imperialists have come to play
Johnny goes to Sally's house to kiss her goodbye
But Daddy says to spend the night
They make love 'till the early morning light
For tomorrow Johnny goes to fight
Johnny, Ivan, Ian, everybody come along for our nations need new heroes
Time to sing a new war song

Party at ground zero
A "B" movie starring you
And the world will turn to flowing
Pink vapor stew

Please do not fear 'cause Fishbone is here to say (say what?)
Just have a good time, the stop sign is far away
The toilet has flushed and green lights are a ghost
And drop drills will be extinct
Speed Racer cloud has come
They know not what they've done
Sin has just won
And the Earth is a crumb

Party at ground zero
A "B" movie starring you
And the world will turn to flowing
Pink vapor stew

Party at ground zero
A "B" movie starring you
And the world will turn to flowing
Pink vapor stew

"This is not a chawade!"

Party at ground zero
A "B" movie starring you
And the world will turn to flowing
Pink vapor stew

"This is not a chawade!"

Party at ground zero
A "B" movie starring you
And the world will turn to flowing
Pink vapor stew

"This is not a chawade!"
"This is not a chawade!"
"1051

    General CommentThe war song of war songs while still being incredibly hyper

    I agree with everything they say, our world needs new people to look to, not the same old trigger-happy, power-corrupted "peacemakers"

    General Comment@Monster - Pink Vapour stew = a giant pool of blood.

    Agree with Swim, a great War song, with the message of we need peace, not War, to help the World.

    General CommentThis is a Cold War song. Before "Ground Zero" referred to the World Trade Center ruins, it meant a potential apocalypse that would be caused by either America or the USSR (also see "Christmas at Ground Zero" by Weird Al Yankovic). "Johnny" in this song means an American soldier, while "Ivan" (which is Russian for John) is a Soviet soldier.

    General CommentThere's a cool video for the song based on Edgar Allan Poe's The Masque Of The Red Death (except instead of the red death, the mask reveals nuclear war).

    Also, the instrumental part at the beginning seems to be based on music from the opera Carmen. Very cool.
