Operation Ivy – Freeze Up lyrics

Empty factories to the east and all our waste
The shape of things that came shows on the broken workers face
To the west you'll find our silicon promised lands where
Machines replace our minds for systematic profit plans
The course of human progress staggers like a drunk
Its steps are quick and heavy and it's mind is slow and blunt
I look for optimism but I just don't know
Its seeds are planted in a poison place where nothing grows

[Chorus:]
It's 1989 stand up and take a look around
Weathers bitter tension it seems is sinking down
Drunk with power and fighting one another
Every hour shows the winter getting harder
There's a freeze up coming... [ad libs]

One nation stands the tallest radiating blinding light
Plastic and fluorescent energy robbing us of sight
Set in our way content with our decay
We wave the flag of freedom as we conquer and invade
Ever ask yourself where's my place in this hell
But no ones there to tell you cuz they don't know that themselves
The well rehearsed lines from our elated politicians
No longer offer solace we can see the self destruction

[Chorus:]

Just one political song, just one political song
To drop into the list that stretches years and years long
[x2]

Static and division is increasing like a storm,
We are shelter, we are forewarned,
Nothing can be changed except ourselves,
Nothing can be changed except ourselves,

There's a freeze up coming... [ad libs]
