HELLO FASCISM (vocals a la New Model Army; play in quick martial tempo) Bm Far off in the distance The helicopters rage C Spotlights neatly focused on their Military stage Em And I hide my face behind the blind And pray they never see Bm The depths to which I've sunken In this country of the free: Anonymously telephoning Agencies of sin Turning in my buddies To escape the turning in And the crime that we've committed The reason for this scene: We smoked a little cigarette That wasn't nicotine. CHORUS 1: C D Bye bye freedom Em Bye bye C Hello Fascism Your party's turning D Right this way C Em D Em Your message comes in loud and clear this time. They say "it's for the children that we're Putting you away. Holiest of missions now We've got to make you pay," But the children don't have time to smoke They're busy buying guns And the lessons that they're learning Are from Father Hitler's sons. CHORUS 2: Bye bye Freedom Bye bye Hello Fascism Your dream has come out Right this time Supremacy is black and white today. They take our freedoms from us In the name of liberty Orwellian Newspeak says Today our A is Z And I wonder if a little pot Is really all that bad When I look at what the straights have done I think we've all been had. FINAL CHORUS: Bye Bye liberty Bye Bye Hello insanity Your party's coming Right this way Your purity is guaranteed this time.
