I'm the disco fucker of the new generation.
i'm in line with active invention, here's a fist
to forward your fucking evolution. head full
of ten o' clock education. military action
gives me justice and american solution.
it's the headline of the baby in arms.

Impact, impact, impact, Iimpact.

hand to hand darkness that shuts the
curtain on this week's call to arms.
running runway operations, turning the
machine, it's another vote of confidence
to booming world war economy. television
ethic of crisis on demand. this is
advancement, this is entertainment. was
it iraq, or kosovo, korea, or japan, panama,
vietnam, great britain, or the father land?
can you hear the dream at night marching
in the sky? marching with god, throwing
stones across the ocean. it's this week's
topic of discussion, a headline of the past.
it won't make an impact unless it's fucking
armageddon. nine shots to the head my
god i'm still fucking breathing. coming at
you live on tv.

Impact, impact, impact, impact.

running runway operations, turning the
machine, it's another vote of confidence
to booming world war economy. television
ethic of crisis on demand. this is advancement,
this is entertainment.

Impact.

    General Commenti strongly suggest this song to anyone who thinks drop-outs are dumb.... just look at tom's lyrics half the people in my school or colleges around my town couldn't even begin to understand the song

    i talked to tom once and he said that it was about media and the impact it has on society... as well as big events such as war, religion...etc.

    General Commentyeah, i agree. The average citizen has would not be able to follow him, and even more so in "The Politics of Starving" when he talks about the IMF and how inhumane we are, he's far more educated than most would be led believe, he just doesn't have the documentation.

    General Commentshould be:
    This ISN'T advancement, this is entertainment.

    don't let song lyrics become your text books, further your own understanding. self-educate. live, don't be told how to.

    General Commenti don't think that it should be "this isn't advancement, this enertainment"
    it should be how tom has it, i think he is being sarcastic because watching people getting killed in a war isn't advancement or entertainment.
