lyrics

Everybody in this city's jumpy,
Everybody's on their edge
'Cause everybody knows we're all in danger,
It's looming over all our heads
Gotta stock up on guns and ammo,
Gotta lock the house down tight
Gotta take a shot at every shadow
And don't let anybody inside
Maybe I'll die before they're gone
But dammit, you'll know I tried

The Kansas City sky get is getting brighter every night
But they're not takin' me without a serious fight
Oh, yeah, you better well beware
There's something in the air
I've never seen Missouri in a state like this before
The start of an apparent interplanetary war
Oh, yeah, you better say your prayers
There's something in the air

There were just a few when all this started,
Now they're showin' up in waves
They're using telepathic messages
To turn us into mindless slaves
They're beaming down their mind control
From their orange, glowing fleet
They've nearly wiped our city out
And they've only been here six weeks
They're also using laser guns
Those rotten, little cheats

The Kansas City sky get is getting brighter every night
But they're not takin' me without a serious fight
Oh, yeah, you better well prepare
There's something in the air
Their alien technology is toppling our town
They've got some kind of thermal ray that's burning us down
Oh, yeah, it's pretty much unfair
There's something in the air

What I really want to know
Why so many UFOs
In the Kansas City sky?
No, I really want to know
It's Kansas City
So...why?

The mothership is charging up its cannon
With a coyly harmless glow
The last survivors try to run
But we've got nowhere to go
A single awesome blast of light
And the whole downtown's erased
Everybody in the cityscape
Is gone without a trace
This is all just a little too close to
Roland Emerich for my taste

The Kansas City sky get is getting brighter every night
But they're not takin' me without a serious fight
Oh, no, don't act like you're not scared
There's something in the air
They've blown thru Independence and they're headed for Advance
If Kansas City fell, those backward hicks don't stand a chance
Oh, no, we're not safe anywhere
There's something in the air
