The Lyrics

Isn't it great?
Swiftly they die?
Targets destroyed on the ground.
Bombed from the sky.
Send in the drones.

It’s the best way?
Don't you approve?
Villains keep tearing around,
Weapons that move.
But now we use drones.
Send in the drones.

Just when they thought
They might be free,
Finally stopping
Somewhere with a hope of safety,
But here comes a drone
With its usual boom,
None left alive,
Their camp now their tomb.

Don't you hate war?
Their fault, I know.
We thought that they wanted us there;
Now we must go.
But still we use drones.
Thank God for the drones.
Quick, send in the drones.

What a surprise.
Who could foresee
They might acquire the
Why only now that I see
Some are heading this way -
What a surprise,
What a bad day.

Isn't it sick?
It’s all so black.
Death raining down everywhere
From their attack.
And where are the drones?
Quick, send off the drones.
Don't bother - they're back.

Awesome topic- 555!!! I've done a few drone parodies myself on the Predator, Reaper, and Avenger. I will do the German Barrakuda soon:

No droning lyrics here -- they are right on target (within a few meters). 5s

Just randomed this. The melancholy OS fits the feeling of helplessness and dehumanization perfectly. Great match, well done.
