What time is it, boys and girls? It's time for the Dark Ages!
Your nightmares and traumas Can make you rich and famous Commericals can teach you All that you need to know Kiss my flag Don't look back The past is gaining on us Read my lips Watch my hips These are the Dark Ages
George Orwell's dream came true But no one realizes It crushed us so nicely With so much wit and style Entertainment might as well be Just like a rocket launcher Too bad it's in the hands of the enemy
Nobody believes me And so I know that I'm right Charisma addiction gives me a deja vú Is this like Germany in the 1930s? Do we have to Live through the apocalypse again?
[Chorus] Might be the Dark Ages But we're so happy Happy to be here today
You never know when you Might have to face the censor So I don't pretend to Want to make too much sense
Revolution on TV In far-off distant countries Too bad it's just another mini-series here
Nobody believes me And so I know that I'm right Charisma hangover Has got to wear off soon Could this be like Eastern Europe In the 1990s? Will we ever get a chance To have perestroika here?
Might be the Dark Ages But we're so happy Happy to be here with you
