"The Future Is Now"
This city’s made of diamonds
And tomorrow glass will grow
On the freedoms that divide us
They’re coming after me
Now who’s knock-knocking at your door?
A thought that starts a riot
They’re coming after me now
Oke, what are we flashing back to? What happend in 1984? Or does it just mean the birth of the band?
I always assumed Dexter was referring to the Orwell novel:
A thought that starts a riot - most likely a reference to Thought Police.
This album already made me watch "doctor strangelove", and it seems like it's gonna make me read too.
Yeah it's a Dead Kennedys reference
Also I really wish they would play The Future Is Now more live out of the 8 songs from the album I have seen live that was by far my favorite one
I was gonna say that but you beat me to it.

How can you not have read 1984, let alone never even heard of it?
I assume it's the novel, we should probably ask him...
Could be both, too. I mean:

See where I'm coming from?
But we should ask the band indeed.
But that Dead Kennedys song is a reference to the book 1984 as well.
