lyrics

"Countach"
By The Cassettes

Calling out with a sound
Something shaking in the ground
Coming from an ancient mound

Navajo warriors
Coming back to our time
Give us a mystic sign

Navajo Warriors
Come and take it to the ground
Yeah yeah

Take us by the hand
Show us the mystic land
Yeah yeah

Fall out
Industrial age
It's time to turn the page
Consult the ancient sage

I'm tired of this scenery
Another bright sign to see
From sea to shining sea

C'mon!

Navajo Warriors
Come and take it to the ground
Yeah yeah

Take us by the hand
Show us the mystic land
Yeah yeah

The Navajo Warriors
(He's gonna ride)
Came back to our time
(He's gonna write)
Said it ain't too fine
(The future of the human race)

"They tore out what was real"
(Lets get it back)
"Replaced with a big sale"
(Get off the track)
"Lock 'em up with no bail!"
(Taking back the human race)

** GUITAR SOLO BY MIKE SCHLIEBAUM **

It's time to hit reset
(He's gonna ride)
Turn off the T.V. set
(He's gonna write)
Take us to another time
(The future of the human race)

Navajo mystery
(Lets get it back)
Hanging from a sacred tree
(Get off the track)
Secrets for you and me
(The secrets of the human race)

COUNTACH!
