“New Cold War” song lyrics:

Jake: “Tower, this is call sign PRESTIGE. Permission to open up on this balloon bogey.”

Danny: “Roger that. Take ‘em out. Put that shit on TikTok.”

We’ll roast your ass / And we’ll give you cash / It’ll be a blast

Havana microwaves / There’ll be hell to pay /We’re in Taiwan to stay

We’ll make wet markets dry / We’ll blow you sky high / Because the end is nigh

The CCP / You won’t hear that from me / ‘Cause I’m American free, baby
