about

Another call for revolution disguised as cute pop

lyrics

Got to get away. The screaming's deep inside us.
Say it's fine and get in line, and that's how they divide us.
Got to find a better way, the one that we've forgotten.
This is not the real world. Let's find the one we're not in.

Heading out to the great wide open,
Many miles from anywhere but here.
Gonna find a new solution.
Gonna leave this institution.

Get out of the way. We need a vacation, we need a vacation.
We're leaving today. Let's take a vacation. We need a vacation.

Can't you feel the fire? It's down to just an ember.
Smell the glow and then you know. It starts when you remember.
Can't you hear the trumpet call? It calls you to adventure.

Can't you see that it's the season?
Time to find the reason you were born.
No way we're gonna do their bidding.
We're not kids and we're not kidding.

Get out of my brain. We need a vacation, we need a vacation.
Get on to the plane. We need a vacation of our own creation.

The ancient ship is sinking.
Let's leave and leave 'em thinking.

And when the doors are open, brilliant colors stream into your eyes.
The sunshine heals what's broken, takes you to a truth that never dies.
You'll see the new world dawning, far beyond the teaching and the lies.
They say we've got our freedom. If that's true than we don't need 'em.

Today is the day. We need a vacation, we need a vacation.
I'll show you the way. We need a vacation, we need a vacation.

We're under attack. We'll make a vacation, we'll make a vacation.
We're taking it back. The latest creation is leaving the station.

Get on to the train. We need a vacation, we need a vacation.
Get on to the plane. We need a vacation of our own creation.
