"We Are Godzilla, You Are Japan" as written by and Michael Richard/watkins Lewis....
I've heard all your whining
All this talk behind my back
The time is coming
The time is now for our attack
A new sun rising
A new one in your world of black
Don't try to stop this
You will break like glass

Move over son
Your time is done
The weak are trapped under our feet
The city's gone
We see you run
Cause you can't take our heat

Let's go
The only way we know
Is taking you out

Did you not understand me?
Were you not listening last time?
A new day dawning
And were taking back your life
You look so pathetic
And were taking back control
I'm sorry but we have to let you go

Move over son
Your time is done
The weak are trapped under our feet
The city's gone
We see you run
Cause you can't take our heat

Let's go
The only way we know
Is taking you out

Taking you out

    General CommentI think the song is about Evolution beause of this part of the lyrics
    And did you not understand me,
    Were you not listening last time,
    A new day dawning,
    And then we're taking back your life,
    You're so pathetic,
    And we're taking back control,
    I'm sorry but we have to let you go,
    Move over son,
    Your time is done,
    But we can,
    Struggle to our feet,
    This thing is done,
    We see you run,
    'Cos you can't
    Save your hide.

    General CommentThe evolution thing is quite good idea, But I think it's a different kind of evolution....Like, the evolution of what mankind has become, the technology it uses and the evolution of man's philosphy and way of thinking.

    General CommentToo bad this amazing track was left off the american version of start something. Definitely reminescent of the good ol' fsop days. Brilliant.

    General CommentThis song is incredible, and aside from that the title is really amusing. I think these lyrics are a little off though:

    I've heard all your whining
    All this talk behind my back...etc.

    A new sun rising
    A new one in your world of black
    Don't try to stop us.. etc.

    Move over son, your time is done
    The weak get trapped under our feet
    The city's gone, we see you run
    Cos you can't take the heat

    Maybe I have a different version or something, but those are the lyrics according to what I hear and MOACSupreme.com. DragonNinja says differently though, so maybe there are two versions?

    Regardless, amazing song. The guitar is flawless, espescially at the end of the song. Ian sounds awesome as always, and this is just an incredible tune, and the same goes for all the songs by this band.

    General Commenti think this is by far the best song on Start Something. FSOP is a much better album.
