99 Red Balloons
by Goldfinger

You and I in a little toy shop
Buy a bag of balloons with the money weÂ've got
Set them free at the break of dawn
Till one by one they were gone
Back at base, sparks in the software
Flash the message â??somethings out thereâ??
Floating in the summer sky
Ninety nine red balloons go by

Ninety nine red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, its red alert
ThereÂ's something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
And focusing it on the sky
The ninety nine red balloons go by

Ninety nine decisions treat
Ninety nine ministers meet
To worry, worry, super scurry
Call the troops out in a hurry
This is what we've waited for
This is it boys, this is war
The President is on the line
As ninety nine red balloons go by

Ninety nine knights of the air
Ride super high-tech jet fighters
Everyone's a super hero
Everyone's a Captain Kirk
With orders to identify
To clarify and classify
Scrambling the summer sky
Ninety nine red balloons go by

As ninety nine red balloons go by

Ninety nine dreams I have had
In every one a red balloon
It's all over and I'm standing pretty
In this dust that was a city
If could find a souvenir
Just the prove the world was here
And here is a red balloon
I think of you and let it go

the singer seems like he should be taking me to flavor town instead of singing this

I swear to Jeebus, as soon as I saw that guy I'm thinking Guy Fieri.


that was the style back then, Guy Fieri was probably into metal & punk in the 90s


God damn it thats funny

@James hairfield even as someone who really doesn't like the guy, if you genuinely believe this (and furthermore, that a Democrat wouldn't do it, hello FDR!), that's laughably adorable.

@Kal A A wall between neighboring countries, which is pretty routine across the world. Not a wall inside the same country.

@Jalushun it's about several things at once. Symbolism can be deeper than just one level. Hell, in 1979 two families from the East hot air ballooned to the west, that might be there under the surface.
