It's coming through the air for all of us to hear
Could it be the sounds of liberation or just the image of detention?

We want the airwaves back, we want the airwaves back
We don't just want airtime we want all the time all of the time
We want the airwaves back, we want the airwaves back
We want transmission for the people by the people

What frequency are you getting
Is it noise or sweet sweet music
On what frequency will liberation be
On what frequency will liberation be

It's coming through the air for all of us to hear
Could it be the sounds of liberation or just the image of detention
Control my flower, business and news all ready to devour
Who's in charge and what does he say
Is he playing the alternative or does it sound the same old way

We want the airwaves back

    General CommentYou can find out a lot about what Refused's songs mean if you read their manifestos in the liner notes of The Shape of Punk to Come:

    "Turn the knob and wait for the liberating sound of ecstasy and revolution. Who pays the newsman and who owns the radio stations and who runs the record label? Who benefits from the de-politicizing in art and music and who benefits from the clean sound of the next pop wonder? Who runs the game show and who pays the salaries to the reporters? Here and now we offer you a taste of our liberation frequency, provided by us for your satisfaction and excitement. This is radio clash, 33 Revolutions Per Minute, our haven of thoughts and ideas. It could be yours too, if only you’d let yourself go and turn the knob and listen and love and sing and think."
