  • Lyrics
  • There's a trouble in the air
    A rumble in the streets
    A going out of business sale and a race to bankruptcy
    It's not one to 99, it's 99 to one
    A common cause and a call to arms for the health of our daughters
    And our sons

    It's 99 revolutions tonight
    99 revolutions tonight
    99 revolutions tonight
    99 revolutions tonight

    There's a rat in the company
    A bail out on easy street
    How the fuck did the working stiff
    Become so obsolete?
    Hit the lights and bang the drum and let your flag unfold
    'Cause history will prove itself in the hall of justice and lost souls

    It's 99 revolutions tonight
    99 revolutions tonight
    99 revolutions tonight
    99 revolutions tonight

    We live in troubled times
    From the ghettos to an empty suburban home
    We live in troubled times
    And I'm 99 percent sure that something's wrong
    It’s all wrong

    It's 99 revolutions tonight
    99 revolutions tonight
    99 revolutions tonight
    99 revolutions tonight

    99 revolutions tonight
    99 revolutions tonight
    99 revolutions tonight
    99 revolutions tonight
