1984. – (August 31st 1984)
This is the song The Bad Plants play at the festival. A song about a utopian dystopia, somewhere they fear the world might go. A culmination of fears.

lyrics

-[Front stage of Music Festival, New York]-

Nowhere to run, and nothing to hide. From the governments prying eyes
Take yourself a soma holiday. and get some time away from the brain

*Welcome to 1984. your apathy has opened up the door
now big brother is spying on you. Monitoring through an apple II*

Take your mandatory soma injections. Hope you don’t mind if we rig the elections
Freedom of speech for those approved. Best shut up before your removed

*Chorus*

I say the police are on a killing spree. You say it means nothing to me
I tell you our democracy is now an oligarchy . You say it means nothing to me
I say “WHO ARE THE BRAIN POLICE”

“People of America, our lord and savoir, Ronald Reagan”
“Hello my children, Remember the police are there for OUR protection”

What did your S.A.T. say about you?. Oh I see you’re a delta too.
Speak softly big brother is near/ never mind he’s already here

*Chorus*

Welcome to 1984, the oligarchy has pried open the door
now the government is watching you. Monitoring through your apple II
