If we can call them friends,
then we can call them on red telephones
and they won't pretend that they're too busy
or they're not alone

And if we can call them friends, then we can call,
holler at them down these hallowed halls
Just don't let the human factor
fail to be a factor at all

Don't, don't you worry about the atmosphere
or any sudden pressure change,
'cause I know that it's starting to get warm in here
and things are starting to get strange

And did you, did you see how
all our friends were there?
And they're drinking roses from the can

And how, how I wish I,
I had talked to them
And I wish they fit into the plan

And we were tired of being mild,
we were so tired of being mild
And we were tired

I know we're gonna meet someday
in the crumbled financial institutions
of this land

There will tables and chairs,
there'll be pony rides and dancing bears,
there'll even be a band

'Cause, listen, after the fall,
there'll be no more countries,
no currencies at all

We're gonna live on our wits,
we're gonna throw away survival kits,
trade butterfly knives for Adderal

And that's not all, woah!
There will be snacks, there will,
there will be snacks, there will be

There will be snacks

And we were tired of being mild,
we were so tired of being mild
And we were, we were so tired

So, don't you,
don't you worry
about the atmosphere
