Anti-flag – The Old Guard lyrics

The time has come to say goodnight (say goodnight)
The time has come to say goodbye (goodbye!)
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye
To the old guard, goodnight goodbye

Yeah!
Witness the setting sun, the tables have been turned
We will not suffer their reprise (suffer reprise!)
A brave new voice rings out
Intense, fearless, devout (half truths!)
A listless body now revived
Old stories fit with retreads
Half truths with truth left unsaid
Each time their lips moved we heard lies (they heard lies)

So now it's time to say goodbye
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye
Yeah! To the old guard,
Tonight we say, to the old guard
Goodnight, goodbye, yeah!

Witness the setting sun (the sun)
This century's crash and burn (and burn)
Autocracy dethroned by fire
Commissar doused in fire
Make note a million times
Their class war, deceit, lies (oh no)
Their compassion laced with despise
Yeah!
All of the hatred they bred, all the division they spread
We always knew they lived on lies (they were lies)

So now it's time to say goodbye
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye
To the old guard, tonight we say
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye

Bear witness to this setting sun
(Bear witness to this setting sun)
The dawning of a new age has begun
(The new age now has just begun)
From east to west, we watch this setting sun (whoa oh, oh)
The dawning of a new age has begun

And it's time, it's time to say goodbye
To the old guard, tonight we say
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye
Yeah! To the old guard, tonight we say
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye
Goodbye! Goodbye! Goodnight, goodbye!
Goodnight, goodbye, goodnight, goodbye!
Goodnight, goodbye
