Anti-Flag Lyrics

10. The Old Guard



The time has come to say goodnight (Say goodnight) 
The time has come to say goodbye (Goodbye!)
To the old guard!
Goodnight, goodbye
To the old guard!
Goodnight, goodbye
Yeah!

Witness the setting sun.
The tables have been turned
We will not suffer their reprise (suffer reprise!)
A brave new voice rings out
Intense, fearless, devout
A listless body now revived

Old stories fit with retreads
Half-truths with truth left unsaid
Each time their lips moved we heard lies
So now it’s time to say goodbye

To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye, yeah
To the old guard, tonight we sing
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye, yeah

Witness the setting sun (the sun!)
This century’s crash and burn (and burn!)
Autocracy dethroned by ire commissar doused in fire
Make note a million times
Their class war, deceit, lies
Their compassion laced with despise, yeah

All of the hatred they bred
All the division they spread 
We always knew they lived on lies 
So now it’s time to say goodbye

To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye
To the old guard, tonight we sing
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye

Bear witness to this setting sun 
(Bear witness to this setting sun)
The dawning of a new age has begun
(The new age now has just begun)
From east to west we watch this setting sun
The dawning of a new age has begun
And it’s time, it's time to say goodbye

To the old guard, tonight we sing
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye, yeah
To the old guard, tonight we sing
To the old guard, goodnight, goodbye
Goodnight, goodbye!
Goodnight, goodbye!
Goodnight, goodbye!
Goodnight, goodbye!
Goodnight, goodbye!
