Negativland - An Actual Attack Lyrics

An Actual Attack

We interrupt this program. The Office of Civil Defense has issued the following message: this is an attack warning. Repeat, this is an attack warning. Attack warning means that an actual attack against this country has been detected, and that protective action should be taken. Important instructions will follow in thirty seconds.

We interrupt this program. The Office of Civil Defense has issued the following message: this is an attack warning. Repeat, this is an attack warning. Attack warning means...
(Attack warning means that an actual attack)
An actual attack against this country has been detected

Argh, God, I got all this mucus (sniff)
Goddammit I gotta blow my nose

The Office of Civil Defense has..
{This station has interrupted its regular program at the request of the United States government...)
Huh, what are you talking about? (sniff)
Darn, my nose is stuffed up. I gotta have some club soda.

Well, that mucus is welling up. Dammit, aah

Attack warning means that an actual attack against this country has been detected,
(and that protective action should be taken)
And that protective action should be taken
I guess we say "this is an attack warning". Oh, this is where I forget it.
(This is an emergency action notification)
I know this part, "This station will not be broadcasting news and information to your area. You will now tune your radio dial until you find the station which is broadcasting news and information for your area. The broadcasters in your area..."

Now let's see, there's something about a red card, something about, uh, where does the red card go? I can't think...
(all broadcast stations shall broadcast Emergency Action Notification Message #2, red card)
What, wait a minute, ha no, no

You're getting me all mixed up, this is an attack warning. I keep getting this in my head: "This station will not be broadcasting news and information"
(I repeat, this station will not be broadcasting news and information for your area)
For your area
(Until further notice)
You will now tune your radio dial until you find a station which is broadcasting news and information

(for your area)
For your area
I think that's how it ends

(That's kinda like my hair)
