Radio #2

from So Long, Astoria by The Ataris



Radio #2

Meet me at midnight the broadcast tower,
High above the Hollywood sign.
You bring your guitair and i'll bring my "Radio Radio."
Everyone will come for miles around to witness this beautiful sight,
We'll set bonfires, pretend it's the Fourth of July.

This is the starting of a brand new revolution
Bite the hand that feeds.
Stand up and fight against the messages that they're sending.
Stop their frequency!

You're always talking, It's never ending.
It's about time that we turned off the radio.
Call the request lines and tell them that it's over.
You're always playing all of the same songs
over and over again.
It's about time that we all turned off the radio.

We'll listen to b-sides and sing along to anthems of the years gone by.
Integrity and honesty will prevail tonight.
When it's all over, one question still remains...
Why do so many bands never make it to the radio?

Look outside your F.M. dial.
They're preaching lies in 4/4 time.
A generation without a voice,
and stripped of pride.
