A Makeshift Militia

Marching to the beat of a distant drum machine
Drawing up a plan during the approach
Playing it by ear
This could be our year

Following a hunch and a lingering reverie
Reconsidering now would be ill-advised
Better to proceed
We'’ve got all we need

Nothing wrong with improvisation
We could make it up as we go along
We’'ve got no time for hesitation
This is what we’ve all been waiting for

Aiming toward the east at the new horizon line
Shooting from the hip at whatever moves
As the sun goes down
As the earth spins round

Nothing wrong with improvisation
The moral is up and the will is strong
We’ve got no time for hesitation
This is what we’ve wanted all along

Seems like the limit is the sky
Putting it together on the fly

Holding down the fort with a team of specialists
Answering the phones, straightening up the mess
Keeping home base clean
For the new home team

Nothing wrong with improvisation
We could make it up as we go along
We'’ve got no time for hesitation
This is what we'’ve all been waiting for
