Track Name: Pentagon
Pentagon

A B C D E, five sides, not a square
Does this make guards with guns and dogs ready for the day?

Robots fly our missions and computers drive our cars
Eating fancy dinners is exhausting for top brass

This is the largest office in the world
We like to drive tanks and lob hand grenades in the air

We are military with a phone booth at the front
If you get promoted you can have a shiny watch

Sir is something funny no sir wipe that smile off
your face or I will give you something to laugh about

We are military with some fast food here inside
If you get promoted you can have an ice cream cone

A B C D E, five sides not a square
We like to drive tanks and lob hand grenades in the air

We are military with a disco underground
If you get promoted they will play your favorite song
Track Name: National
National

What’s in a name? $400,000
Who’s on the take? Signage installers
This is insane, National, National

We just want to fly 400,000 miles
Who made the call? Men with no style
This is still insane, National, National
This is irrational

Yellow and blue, look at the workers painting
Why did we have to pay when nothing is really changing?
This was so insane, National, National
This was all factual
