Meet me at midnight
At the broadcast tower
High above the hollywood sign
You bring the explosives and I'll bring my radio (radio)

Everyone will come from miles around
To witness this beautiful site
We'll set bonfires and pretend its the 4th of July

This is the starting of a brand new revolution
Bite the hand that feeds
Stand up and fight against messages that they're sending
Stop their frequency

Your always talkin' its never ending
It's about time that we turned off the radio
Call the request lines and tell them that its over
Your always playin' all of the same songs
Over and over again
Its about time that we all turned off the radio


We'll listen to b-sides and sing along
To anthems of the years gone by
Integrity and honesty will prevail tonight
When its all over (when its all over)
One question still remains
Why do so many bands never make it to the radio


Look outside your fm dial
They're reaching us for one more time
A generation without a voice
It's stripped of pride

    General Commentyou know you can buy albums at your local record store, supporting the band and you never have to worry about commercials. kris roe is an amazing person, and the new album due out in sept is amazing. he had some of the guitar tracks burned to a cd he was listening to in his car, waiting for the lyrics to come him.

    support localism, destroy all corporations.

    General Commentuhm sweety... (Cadillac) the message they are sending is to.. shut off the radio.. as in.. stop listening to it.. hence "call the request lines and tell them that it's over/ your always playing all the of same songs, over and over again.. **Its about time that we all turn off the radio**"

    General Commenthaha.. ^ the radio has always sucked.......but in a way i am glad that they dont play good music on the radio...would u really want the ataris to get as big as say blink ? I DEF dont........ I didnt think there was any possible way for the new ataris stuff to be anywhere as good as the old stuff...but u know what? I was so wrong... The ataris and kris roe just keep proving to us how amazing they really are.
