This is my first try to decipher the lyrics

On and on
You're told which side you're on
You're forced you're thrown
To become side as to cut the call

Aah
And all your friends they
Are riding to the sunset
Fly to the sunset
And away they go

And all your friends they
Ride to the sunset
Fly to the sunset
And away they're thrown
Into the fire

(AWESOME BASS)

Ten below
The call come on the radio
Ahh
Over you go
And the red now all the rivers flow
The poppies grow

All your friends they
Ride to the sunset
Fly to the sunset
And away they're blown

All your friends they
Ride to the sunset
Are riding to the sunset
And they're taken home

Open Fire
Open Fire

(AWESOME GUITAR)

Open Fire
Open Fire
And Fire
Just arrived the fire​

Please add your own thoughts so that we can decipher all of the lyrics :)

How does this look?

This is my first try to decipher the lyrics

On and on
You're told which side you're on
You're forced, you're thrown

To become side as to cut the corn

Aah
And all your friends they
Ride into the sunset
Fly into the sunset
And away they blow

And all your friends they
Ride into the sunset
Fly into the sunset
And away they're thrown
Into the fire

(AWESOME BASS)

Ten below
The call come? on the radio
Ahh
Over you go
And the red now all the rivers flow
The poppies grow

All your friends they
Ride into the sunset
Fly into the sunset
And away they're blown

All your friends they
Ride into the sunset
Arrive into the sunset
And they're taken home

Open Fire
Open Fire

(AWESOME GUITAR)

Open Fire
Open Fire
Open Fire
And fire
Just arrived, the fire???

Please add your own thoughts so that we can decipher all of the lyrics :)

^This is what I hear:

On and on
You're told which side you're on
You're forced, you're thrown
To become side as to cut the call

Aah
And all your friends they
Ride into the sunset
Fly up to the sunset
And away they blow

And all your friends they
Ride into the sunset
Fly up to the sunset
And away they're thrown
Into the fire

(AWESOME BASS)

Ten below
The call come on the radio
Ahh
Over you go
And the red now all the rivers flow
The poppies grow

All your friends they
Ride into the sunset
Fly up to the sunset
And away they're blown

All your friends they
Ride into the sunset
Arrive into the sunset
And they're taken home

Open Fire
Open Fire

(AWESOME GUITAR)

Open Fire
Open Fire
Open Fire
And (/Open?) fire
Just arrived, the fire

i think it refers to the misguided view of happily-ever-after. i also feel negative hollywood vibes in it.

I feel more like it's a war song.

W/ some minor edits:

On and on
You're told which side you're on
Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh
You're forced, you're thrown
To become side as to cut the call

And away they blow

And all your friends they

Fly to the sunset

Here's the full lyrics from the image above:

On and on
You're told which side you're on
You're forced, you're thrown
To become to the scythe to cut the corn

And all your friends they ride into the sunset
Fly into the sunset and away they go
All your friends they ride into the sunset
Fly into the sunset and away they're thrown
Into the fire

Ten below
The call comes on the radio
Over you go
And in red now all the rivers flow
The poppies grow

All your friends they ride into the sunset
Fly into the sunset and away they go
All your friends they ride into the sunset
Ride into the sunset and they're taken home
Into the fire

Open fire!
Open fire!​

isn't it crazy how the two bonus tracks have the best lyrics of the era?
