"Battleflag" as written by Prince Rogers Nelson, Steve Fisk and Shawn Smith....
Your construction
Smells of corruption
I manipulate to recreate
This air to ground saga
Gotta launder my karma

I said hallelujah to the sixteen loyal fans
You'll get down on your mothafuckin' knees
And it's time for your sickness again
Come on and tell me what you need
Tell me what is making you bleed
We got two more minutes and
We gonna cut to what you need
So one of six so tell me
One do you want to live
And one of seven tell me
Is it time for your mothafuckin' ass to give
Tell me is it time to get down on your mothafuckin' knees
Tell me is it time to get down

I'm blown to the maxim
Two hemispheres battlin'
I'm blown to the maxim
Two hemispheres battlin'
Suckin' up, one last breath
Take a drag off of death

Hey Mr. Policeman
Is it time for getting away
Is it time for driving down the mother fuckin' road
And running from your ass today
Now tell me if do you agree
Or tell me if I'm makin' you bleed
I got a few more minutes and
I'm gonna cut to what you need
So one of six so tell me
One do you want to live
And one of seven tell me
Is it time for your mothafuckin' ass to give
Tell me is it time to get down on your mothafuckin' knees
Tell me is it time to get down

Got a revolution behind my eyes
We got to get up and organize
Got a revolution behind my eyes
We got to get up and organize
Got a revolution behind my eyes
We got to get up and organize
You want a revolution behind your eyes
We got to get up and organize

Come on baby tell me
Yes we aim to please

    General Commentfirst off, it's basically a cover/adaptation of a pigeonhed song, the original is pretty sweet too, you should check that out.. secondly, if you get the australian skint version of the album rather than the american skint/columbia version, the lines 'come on baby tell me, yes we aim to please' are replaced with 'a new production of a new beed, leaders stand up, organise..' anyhow the song is very good, the skint release version is much better, perhaps it was changed because they thought americans couldn't handle the other lyrics.. i honestly do not know. the track isn't the best on the album in my opinion, but it's the only lo fi track many people know, as it did have a few days of fame..

    General CommentYeah, this a great song. During that brief period when I was 17-19 and techno was really popular.

    General CommentHow dare you call this song techno.

    The australian version - The beginning sound and Lo-Fi singer's voice is deeper.

    General CommentPilk: You're right. More people should listen to Lo-Fi's. "Vision Incision" was the best track on that album, IMO.

    General Comment'Techno'?

    just because it has electronic elements does not mean it is techno. There is a huge, diverse range of music utilizing electronic influences. 'Techno' is an insult to what the Lo Fis do.
