Code War

Lyrics: Sammy Hagar, Mickey Hart
Music: Sammy Hagar, Mickey Hart

A single from the Hart/Hagar Project in 1999, released as an mp3 download. Played in 2013 by the Mickey Hart Band in a slightly different version.

Well, there's a black hole in the system
A code war going on
Welcome to the start of the big unknown

Somewhere there's a killer
A virus on the loose
A techno retro nightmare
Running out of juice

(Break out) Are you ready
(Break out) This could be real
(Break out) In the midnight hour
I'm gonna party all the way (party on)
To Y2K (are you ready)

IBM, IRS
CIA and all the rest
Buckle on up and hold on tight
Gonna be a real long day
Gonna be a real strange night

(Break out) Are you ready
(Break out) This could be real
(Break out) In the midnight hour
I'm gonna party all the way (party on)
To Y2K (are you ready)

Say, tick, tock. tick, tock, time ticks away
Gonna be a real long night
Gonna be a real strange day
Tick, tock. tick, tock, say no big deal
When your computer's dead
Baby, it's for real

(Break out) Are you ready
(Break out) This could be real
(Break out) In the midnight hour
I'm gonna party all the way (party on)
To Y2K (are you ready)

(Break out) This could be real
(Break out) In the midnight hour
I'm gonna party all the way (party on)
To Y2K (are you ready)

Yes, I'm ready
(Break out) 'Cause this could be real
(Break out) Well, in the midnight hour
I'm gonna party all the way
I'm gonna party all the way
I'm gonna party all the way
Y2K
The Mickey Hart Band's 2013 version is:
I am code
I rule the world
I am code
I am the world
I am code
I rule the world
I am code
I am the world

Somewhere there's a killer
There's a virus on the loose
There's a techno [echo] nightmare
Running all the juice

There's a black hole in the system
A code war is going on
Welcome to the start
Of the big unknown

(Melt down) Are you ready
(Melt down) This could be real
(Melt down) Are you ready
(Melt down) This is real

I am code
I rule the world
I am code
I am the world
I am code
I rule the world
I am code
I am the world

IBM, IRS
CIA and all the rest
Now buckle on up, now hold on tight
It's gonna be a real long day
Gonna be a real strange night
Gonna be a real long day
Gonna be a real strange night

(Melt down) Are you ready
(Melt down) This could be real
(Melt down) Are you ready
(Melt down) This is real

[?] in the night
When the lights they go down
And no one's around
And you're invisible
You're invisible
Invisible, you're invisible
[etc]

I am code
I rule the world
I am code
I am the world
I am code
I rule the world
I am code
I am the world
