    I flip the switch on my laser video
    And there's the man staring back at me
    He starts to speak in a voice so righteous
    About the sins of society

     

    He's got the answers to all my problems
    Says he'll decide what I should hear and see
    I try to change to another station
    But all I get is more of his morality
    Morality

     

    But I see the kids of a new generation
    And they won't stand for this mind control
    They're gonna change this world we live in
    They're gonna bring back the Rock and Roll

     

    So if I can, I'm gonna break from this prison
    Gonna get out and join in the fight
    Take a chance on what I believe in
    Win or lose, I know it's right

     

    'Cause it's High Time
    For us to start a revolution
    High time
    Just like an A-Bomb explosion
    High time
    It ain't the music that's in question
    High time
    It's more the freedom of expression

     

    Change is comin'
    Mind Police are comin'
    We're on the move
    The Old World is crumblin'
    A new day's comin'
    Tell your friends and relations
    We're on the move
    We're gonna start a rockin' nation

     

    High Time Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
    High time
    We're gonna start a revolution
    High time
    High time
    Everybody lay back and I'll tell you why


    I've been instructed to inform you that your privileges have been penalized
    Your avoidance tactics have proven disappointing

    (laughs) Up yours Roboto

    No deviance Kilroy

    What will this thing cost man?
    Look at the cost
    Hundreds and hundreds


    The final lines spoken by DeYoung during the fadeout allegedly refer to the amount that Wooden Nickel spent on promoting Styx II, which was about $200.
