Someday they won't let you, now you must agree
The times they are a-telling, and the changing isn't free
You've read it in the tea leaves and the tracks are on TV
Beware, the savage jaw of 1984

They'll split your pretty cranium and fill it full of air
And tell that you're eighty but brother you won't care
You'll be shooting up anything like tomorrow's wasn't there
Beware, the savage jaw of 1984

(Come see, come see, remember me?)
We played out an all night movie role
You said it would last but I guess we've grown in 1984
(Who could ask for more?)
In 1984
(Who could ask for more, more?)

I'm looking for a vehicle, I'm looking for a ride
I'm looking for a party, I'm looking for a side
I'm looking for the treason that I knew in '65
Beware, the savage jaw of 1984

(Come see, come see, remember me?)
We played out an all night movie role
You said it would last but I guess we enrolled in 1984
(Who could ask for more?)
In 1984
(Who could ask for more, more?)
