(Lips, Reiner, Allison, Dickson)
Innocence
Strays
Freedom
Pays
On board computers malfunction and alter their course
Follow official procedure and answer with force
With force
With Force

Red Zone
Stop
Confused
Caught
Ground forces scramble embark on a murderous task
Shadowed from reason, curtained behind iron mask
Iron mask
Iron mask

Chorus:
Paper General
Printed laws
Paper General
Commie cause

Contact
Sight
Intercept
Flight
Improbable target assassins then contact the ground
Civilian airliner or not, Kremlin says "Shoot it down!"
"Shoot it down!"
"Shoot it down!"

Tragic
Waste
Hostile
Haste
In justification they say that they followed the book
State that they feel no remorse for the lives that they took
They took
They took

-Chorus 2X-
