I flip the switch on my laser video
And there's the man staring back at me
He starts to speak in a voice so righteous
About the sins of society

He's got answers to all my problems
Says he'll decide what I should hear and see
I try to change to another station
But all I get is more of his morality
And morality, yeah

But I see the kids of a new generation
And they won't stand for this mind control
They're gonna change this world we live in
They're gonna bring back the rock and roll

So if I can, I'm gonna break from this prison
Gonna get out and join in the fight
Take a chance on what I believe in
Win or lose, I know it's right

'Cause it's high time
For us to start a revolution
High time
Just like an A-bomb explosion
High time
It ain't the music that's in question
High time
It's more the freedom of expression

Change is comin'
Mind Police are comin'
We're on the move
The Old World is crumblin'
A new day's comin'
Tell your friends and relations
We're on the move
We're gonna start a rockin' nation

High time
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
High time
We're gonna start a revolution
High time
[scatting] Everybody lay back now I tell you why...
[Roboto]
"I've been instructed to inform you that your privileges have been penalized.
Your avoidance tactics have proven disappointing."
[Kilroy]
"Ha ha ha ha ha ha
Up yours, Roboto!"
[Roboto]
"No deviance, Kilroy!"

High time
For us to start a revolution
High time
Just like an A-bomb explosion
High time
It ain't the music that's in question
High time
It's more the freedom of expression

Change is comin'
Mind Police are comin'
We're on the move
The Old World is crumblin'
A new day's comin'
Tell your friends and relations
We're on the move
We're gonna start a rockin' nation

B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-band on the move, yeah
High time
Yeah
High time
B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-band on the move
High time

"What will this thing cost, man? Look at the costs!"
"Hundreds and hundreds!"

    General CommentThis is part of Dennis' "Kilroy" story. The song is simply about Kilroy wanting to break out of his prison and bring back rock n' roll.

    It almost sounds like it could be about Dennis being trapped writing power ballads and new wave because that was what was selling at the time. He wants to "break out" of being trapped in the mainstream and just make the kind of music he wants to. I know it isnt about that but it sure sounds like it.

    General CommentTrapped??? That pussy should have been imprisoned for writing this drivel. Why couldnt Mark David Chapman have been in Chicago when he was writing this? Motherfuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    General CommentOberhymen, I had to go back and re read your post. Un fucking believable! You got a comptuer, use it. This whole album made STYX a laughingstock of their time and was the catalyst for the group breaking up. And that video? So silly its sad. Do some fucking research before you post again you asswipe!
