"Sonny! Yes?.. Nothing would thrill me more greatly than to shoot you. Knocking off a youngster ain't gonna mean all that much to me. Understand? Mhm. But since we're in a hurry, I'll make a deal with you. You throw down your camera and we won't hurt you, okay? Okay!... Direct hit!"

Well we've been holding on for hours hoping that they'll call us back
Yeah we were holding on and hoping they would call
We sat captive in the flowers with our radios in tact
We left our AK47s near the wall

Yeah we were here protecting nations, women, children from invasion
Usually we just felt useless above all
Every meeting's a vacation, never made it to the station for an infiltration
Yeah, we're still too small

So tell me why can't we learn to get along?
And tell me, why are we always on the run?
Pretty sure this club is failing
Haven't made the headlines yet
So tell me, do you know if this invasion's set?

We've sat silent in libraries, drunk tanks, traffic jams and attics
More than spaceships in the sky above our walls
Makes me think they just aren't coming, wasting time's better than running
That's what we've all told ourselves, if just to stall
But we've been holding on for decades hoping that they'd call us back
But I just don't think that that call's ever gonna come
We sit captive in these flowers
Picking asscracks, picking boogers, and I gotta say everybody, this ain't fun

Maybe we should think of somewhere else to go
Or maybe I should think about just going solo
I'm tired of just waiting, contemplating masturbating
With my brain might be a better way to go

So tell me why can't we learn to get along?
And tell me, why are we always on the run?
Pretty sure this club is failing
Haven't made the headlines yet
So tell me, do you know if this invasion's set?
