Hilltop Hoods – Fifity In Five lyrics

Terror cleared the skyline and anger clouded judgement,
So they spent a thousand nighttimes in the desert fighting something,
That they couldn't find, that made it something that they couldn't fight,
Left us all lamenting all the wrongs that they couldn't right,
This is for the second time, we've been here before,
From Vietnam to Saddam, we always needing a war,
Neo-conservatives rose up like Viet Cong,
Their fingers on the trigger we won't be here long,
They killed mlk and they named a day after him,
They killed jfk and named an airport after him,
Some guy shot a monster called Reagan so he could bone,
A girl named Jodie Foster, if only he'd known,
We tested nukes in the atmosphere, the sea and dirt,
And they tested all these missiles just to see if they worked,
Now France got 'em, Russia got 'em, India and Pakistan,
Korea want 'em, states want 'em pointed at the Taliban,
Iran and Afghanistan, sands of the Arab lands,
Order from portable commands in armoured caravans, internet, 3g cellular phones,
Serial killers built in mini-sells in their homes,
And we had Manson, Bundy, Gacy-son of Sam,
Macarena, Superman, chicken dance, running man,
Generation X and generation Y,
And the generation next will degenerate and die,
Cause we got holes in the ozone that we put there ourselves,
Now the poles are a no-go, earths cooking itself,
And we can't look at ourselves so we got saline, botox, eighteen, fake tits, ninteen detox,
Don't stop, get it, get it, can't afford it get it credit,
Buy it, spend it, try it, getting fat? Then you better ched it,
Ab-swing, blue blocker, Tupac or Biggy,
East coast, west coast, Fat Joe or fifty,
Thatcher the shifty iron lady, Tony Blair,
A princess died, some say cause she got Dodi there,
Whitlam, Keating, Hawke and a promise,
Of no children in poverty, wish that could have been honest,
We had abbot and costella, right wing overloads,

Promises and children, they threw em both overboard,
Overwrought refugees thrown to a group home,
Or jailed for the crime of looking for a new home,
Elvis died, Hendrix died, Lennon died
Genocide, in Africa, Serbia, Cambodia, pesticides, bio-toxins, chemical warfare,
All's fair in love and war, more work for the pallbearer,
More terror, more unjust search and seizures,
A tidal wave came and claimed the coast of Indonesia,
Quakes in Iran, Japan and California,
Greenhouse gas turned the world into a sauna,
The trauma of mortars, martyrs, slaughters,
Of partners, mourners, fathers and daughters,
They chassed us, caught us, numbered us to sort us,
Raped up, scorned us, to break us they bought us,
Third world kidneys for captains of industry,
Uprising in the street, corruption in the ministry,
A blowjob brought about the fall of a dynasty,
And mp3s saw the fall of an industry,
Doubled population, halved accommodation,
Carved up resources and we starved the poorer nations, Beirut, Chechnya, all hell,
Broke loose, belin, ninteen eighty nine man, the wall fell,
Cold war ended but that didn't stop more shells,
Waco lit up the sky like burning oil wells,
A world laid waste addiction,
Tell Orwell truth's always stranger then fiction,
Big brother's on closed circuit tv and on cable,
Reality's now scripted, celebrity's for sale, jeopary and jail, seized, depossed,
Remedies and penalties for failed ceo's,
We had the Enron collapse, and white-collar crime,
Investors they were taxed, a dollar for a dime,
The blue chip companies and blue-sky mines,
We no longer choose sides we choose sidelines,
Rich bleeding the kind, blind leading the blind,
And history repeats, no competing with time,
Gasses eating the minds of the vets that they bing home,
The plague of agent orange, gulf war syndrome,
Soldiers sent home, posttraumatic stress leave,
Stds cause the sleeve aint s***,
Aids shook the eighties, grim reaper with a bowling ball,
Metallica, kill em all, let god scold em all,
The Guildford four, chicago seven,
Mumia, mandela, oceans eleven,
Half past twelve on friday the thirteenth,
Dawn of the dead, a nightmare on elm street,
Weapons free environment, war zone, phone home,
Melanoma grow as we soak in the ozone,
Home-grown, hydro, cocaine, nitro,
Werewolf in london, american physco,
Cyclones, bushfires, bush firing scuds,
Naby boomers, woodstoack what happened to the love?
What happened to the cubs? They def em to the wolves,
Set a trial for pedophiles, they let em in the schools,
Set em on the students, turned em on the kids,
And everyone responsible should burn for what they did,
And if they try to deny then an eye for an eye,
The government and church on which we try to rely,
Both rob us till it hurts chasing lie after lie,
Like astronauts chasing a pie in the sky,
They landed on the moon but can't seem to return there,
Makes some question if they ever really were there,
And if they were there now and they looked back,
Would we look them in the eye, could we look back?
Cause when we look back at what we have done,
Can you believe what we have become?
As we walk into the sun,
Can you believe what we have become?
As we walk into the sun.
