Hypersonic Missiles

Album: Hypersonic Missiles (2019)
  • Dutch kids huff balloons in the parking lot
    The golden arches illuminate the business park
    I eat myself to death, feed the corporate machine
    I watch the movies, recite every line and scene
    God bless America and all of its allies
    I'm not the first to live with wool over my eyes

    I am so blissfully unaware of everything
    Kids in Gaza are bombed, and I'm just out of it
    The tensions of the world are rising higher
    We're probably due another war with all this ire
    I'm not smart enough to change a thing
    I've no answers, only questions, don't you ask a thing

    Oh, silver tongue suits and cartoons, they rule my world
    Singing, it's a high time for hypersonic missiles
    And when the bombs drop, darling
    Can you say that you've lived your life?
    Oh, this is a high time for hypersonic missiles

    The cities lie like tumours all across the world
    A cancer eating mankind, hitting it on blindside
    They say I'm a nihilist, 'cause I can't see
    Any decent rhyme or reason for the life of you and me
    But I believe in what I'm feeling, and I'm falling for you
    This world is gonna end, but 'til then, I'll give you everything I have
    I'll give you everything I have

    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh
    (Come on)

    Oh, silver tongue suits and cartoons, they rule my world
    Singing, it's a high time for hypersonic missiles
    When the bombs drop, darling
    Can you say that you've lived your life?
    Oh, this is a high time for hypersonic missiles

    Then you'll do the same, only the names change, honey
    You can join their club if you're born into money
    It's a high time for hypersonic missiles
    And, oh, this is a high time for hypersonic missiles
    And, oh, this is a high time for hypersonic missiles
    Oh, this is a high time for hypersonic missilesWriter/s: Sam Fender
