They don't want you to understand

Sit back, relax, let go, you won't feel a thing

Fulmination with no end
too much to comprehend
count down from ninety nine
in words ceratin slash vague

They're calling for a plague
count down from ninety nine
they'll beat you with the truth
so you won't feel the lies

Sit back, relax, let go, you won't feel a thing

They'll tell you everything,
but they won't tell you anything
you won't feel a thing
until the day you wake up

    General CommentEPIC CHORUS! Saw 'em at both of their Connecticut stops on their current tour, and Ian explained it's about the country basically being asleep while very bad things in the US's name. He compared it to a patient going in for surgery, getting anesthesia, and not feeling anything. But then as the anesthesia wears off, the pain comes in. So, now that the country's waking up to these acts, now we're feeling the pain. Seriously, I love the fade-out. It works so well in this context, especially because the whole song's about how you won't feel anything, and then here's this reminder that once you wake up... well, that's not the case any more, now, is it?

    General CommentYeah same. When i saw them live Ian made the audience join in for the fade out chorus. It was amazing to have every one join in. Its such a sad song but really does portray the way the US is heading.

    General CommentI've counted down from 99 quite a few times, but always had Vicodin or the like to help afterwords, unlike the prisoners at Gitmo. We all thought Obama would be the cure. But Gitmo is still active...the NSA is keeping tabs on us all...the Lie Machine is still grinding away...America needs to be water-boarded to wake the fu(k up.
