Lyrics
Scream with your hands up in the sky
Like you want to testify
For the life that's been deleted

Sing like a rebel's lullaby
Under the stars and stripes
For the lost souls that were cheated

We will be seen but not be heard

We are revolution radio
Operation no control
In the headline, my love's bullet proof
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
Debutants in surgery
In the headline, legalize the truth

Give me rage
Like there's tear gas in the crowd
Do you want to live out loud
But the air is barely breathing

Rise, of the slums to the obsolete
Of the dawn of the new airwaves
For the anti-social media

We are revolution radio
Operation no control
In the headline, my love's bullet proof
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
Debutants in surgery
In the headline, legalize the truth

We will be seen but not be heard
We are the songs of the disturbed

We are revolution radio
Operation no control
In the headline, my love's bullet proof
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
Debutants in surgery
In the headline, legalize the truth
Song Meaning
"I was just watching this controlled chaos, and it was going and happening all over the country. I was feeling that people don't want to feel obsolete in the things that we care about. That's sort of what the song is about." - Billie Joe (Rolling Stone, Aug. 11, 2016)

"'Give me cherry bombs and gasoline!' Armstrong sings on the title track. The idea came to him in New York two years ago when he ran into a Black Lives Matter protest; before he knew it, Armstrong had gotten out of his car and was walking up Eighth Avenue with the throng. 'I was screaming, 'Hands up, don't shoot,' ' he says. 'I felt like I was on the right side of history. ... It's like something is breaking in the world. A lot of the old people are dying off and the values of the Fifties generation are starting to break and what happened in the Sixties and is starting to manifest more now than it ever has before.''
