Check it out

Here comes the big man, fat man
He's going to huff and puff and blow you out
Sooner or later
You're going to kiss the ground you watch
Open up and let the good man in
Here comes the big man
And he's going to lick in your bones
Like the kids at the door
And the killer comes down the lair with 16 million greeting cards

Welcome to new generation (Hi!)
It’s a colour addiction (Soda!)
Welcome to new generation, yeah
It’s a colour addiction (Bubble!)

Eight men play God right next to your country
Steal our children
Ask myself
I'd like to teach the world
To sing a brand new harmony
Skin them up and spit them out
And burn them with the trees
I want to paint the world on coke
I think that I need your help (Blah!)

Welcome to new generation
It’s a colour addiction (Ah!)
Welcome to new generation, yeah
It’s a colour addiction (Ah!)

Smile for the cameras, boys and girls

Welcome to new generation
(Come to the new generation, boys and girls in Europe)
Know colour addiction
(The whole new Norway of opportunity)
Welcome to new generation
(Just step right up and buy your chickens)
Cool, colour addiction
