"Independence Day" as written by and Mia Doi Todd....
There's a battleship parked in the river
Reenacting, open doors, open arms then open fire
There are mushroom clouds and machine-gunned copters descending
In the snapcracklepop fizzle of the fireworks
As they blast into the night air breathed in
By innumerable passengers screaming
"We are Number One "

Independence Day
Our Freedom is won
To choose our own way
When to go, what's to come
But with each tie we break
There is sacrifice
How many lives will it take ?
How many loves just must die ?

There's a man I just met
He hasn't kissed me yet
He reminds me of someone else, only better
But I'm made you of wax, so easy to impress
Am I melting too fast, dripping into your lips ?
Because all my heroes have turned human this year
Slinking 'round pool-tables, sinking into unflabled stupers
Whispering into the night air or into some girl's hair
" I am Number One "

Independence Day
Our Freedom is won
To choose our own way
When to go, what's to come
But with each tie we break
There is sacrifice
How many lives will it take ?
How many loves just must die ?

There's a battleship parked in the Charles river
Shooting off fireworks that light up the world, then fall in the water
My love's next to me, head full of the next century
And wandering whether there'll be a wedding tomorrow
And the secret smoke signals in the aftermath of gunpowder
Seem the most significant indication of what's to come

Independence Day
Our Freedom is won
To choose our own way
When to go, what's to come
But with each tie we break
There is sacrifice
How many lives will it take ?
How many loves just must die ?
