  • At the start of the news day, the fires begin
    In words and in pictures, but I'm not listening
    I'm not taking it in
    I'm going to go to the country, where nothing goes on
    Going to bury my head, where I can't hear the sound of bombs
    Playing along

    Me, I'm just playing along
    You and I, so many good people all
    Just playing along

    I'm going to go to a bar, where is the jukebox is on
    Going to shut out the noise, with a rock'n'roll song
    Playing along

    I'm going to turn up the volume [Repeat: x3]
    Till I can't even think

    Tell us a tale of the proud and the free
    Sing us a swing time American melody
    From "Follow The Fleet"

    Me, I'm just playing along
    You and I, a billion people all
    Just playing along

    I'm going to turn up the volume [Repeat: x3]
    Till I can't even think

    I'm going to turn up the volume [Repeat: x3]
    Till I can't even think

    I'm going to turn up the volume
    Till I can't even think

    I'm going to turn up the volume
    Till I can't even think

    I'm going to turn up the volume
    Till I can't even think

    I'm going to turn up the volume
    Till I can't even think

    I'm going to turn up the volume
    Till I can't even think

    I'm going to turn up the volume
    Till I can't even think

    I'm going to turn up the volume
    Till I can't even think Writer/s: RICHARD DAVID HUGHES, TIMOTHY JAMES RICE-OXLEY, TOM CHAPLIN
