Curfew tonight in Hollywood
I see insurgents drawing near
Helicopters and ecstasy
And the shot heard round the world
The camera shines for channel zero
As the cool kids are running scared
The army has got a brand new toy
And they're just waiting for the word

Tonight it begins so lock your doors up tight
Blackhawks over Los Angeles

The civil strife between the left and right
As the occupation falls
The homeless have taken Beverly Hills
And there's smoke from city hall

We never have seen it coming down this way before
Blackhawks over Los Angeles

And on and on they drone
In the spotlight glare, this is crazy
Broken glass and panic attacks
Silicone and billboards of this
Panic in the streets tonight

Curfew tonight in Hollywood, snipers drawing near
Calling down an airstrike as the shockwaves clear
There's a panic in the streets, there's a calling on the wire
And the cameras still roll as we walk on through through the fire
As a crowd begins to gather, a shot rings out

We never have seen it coming down this way before
Dont really know where else to hide

And on and on they drone
In the spotlight glare, this is crazy
Broken glass and panic attacks
Silicone and billboards of this
Panic in the streets tonight

    General CommentI dunno, I thought the idea was that the blackhawks (a US helicopter) were the US Govt finally attacking its own people.
    the idea being that the US Citizens are being called terrorists for speaking out
    cracking down on free speech and such.
