Army of Pop Kids

lyrics

Shucked corn in Kansas
dealt cards in a Vegas casino
just to get away
just to get away

broke bread in boxcars
shared beds with boys I never even tried to love
never even tried to love

together we'll form a pop band
and all across the world
brothers and sisters will join hands
and we'll be free for a minute
just for a minute
let's dance!
let's dance

what's the point of singing
what's the point of rockin' out
when the bombs are all
about to fall?

'cos it's Imperial Pleather
to shove more crap down everybody else's throats
or maybe it's inevitable

together we'll form a pop band
and all across the world
brothers and sisters will join hands
and we'll be free for a minute
just for a minute
let's dance!
let's dance

bought porn in Kansas
lost a bundle at a Vegas casino
just to get away
from that which is called real life

played shows in boxcars
got head from boys I never even tried to love
don't think we'll ever settle the score

together we'll form a pop band
and march across the world
brothers and sisters will join hands
and we'll be free for a minute
just for a minute
let's dance!
let's dance

you think it's easy but you couldn't find a way
we turn it over but you've got nothing to say
we keep it simple, but you miss out anyway

we keep it simple but you couldn't find a way
we turned it over still you had nothing to say
we make it easy, but you'll miss out anyway

while the bombs fall down
