They got into this place
Where I feel there ain't no escape
Why can't I get a little peace
A little recompense
For the work that's been done
Perceive them under the sun
When the movement gets the troop
And lets them go get gun
Let us blow up something
To avoid all this battling
We've been put up so long
Tied down to straw

Blow
(Shouldn't make a second of)
Smoke

Where's that coming from, the West Side
Begin the new process, stars at night
Sling an arrow over the ocean
Through our air that spits poison
A heart between and a native son
No beach, southern soul, California
Get the boom and the fire from the sun
Now won't there
Everyone catch the reflection, singing

Blow
(Shouldn't make a second of)
Smoke
(Hey)

"By controlling the frequency of the sound waves, we can produce a musical tone. For instance..."

Be with us always
Even until the end
Be with us always
Even until the end
(Gotta be)

For these are troubled times
These are troubled times
Got to be with us always
Even until the end of the ages

"The crew were mostly just kids. From the beaches south of L.A. Rock-n-rollers with one foot in their graves."

"All solid objects can be destroyed by the proper pitch."

    General CommentA google search shows that "The crew were mostly just kids..." is a sample from the film Apocalypse Now. The other two quotes are from the film In Like Flint.

    I can't find any official transcripts of the lyrics, so a lot of these lines are my best guesses.
