Track Name: S.O.S.
Trapped in the desert plagued by shifting sands
Never knowing just where we've been
We watch the flags in search of helping hands
We're finding far more foes than friends

Behind the shadows there are monsters
Now one of them might just be you
The fear and danger here's a constant
And there is nothing we can do

Somebody better save our souls
Come and save our souls
Save our souls
Who's gonna save our souls

High above the ocean in a silver plane
I'm watching weather down below
Now up ahead I spy a hurricane
Lord, how the wind is gonna blow

Behind the shadows there are monsters
Now one of them might just be you
The fear and danger here's a constant
And there is nothing we can do

Somebody better save our souls
Come and save our souls
Save our souls
Who's gonna save our souls

Save our souls
Save our souls

*SOLO

Trapped in the desert plagued by shifting sands
Never knowing just where we've been
We watch the flags in search of helping hands
We're finding far more foes than friends
Track Name: Evening News
Well the news man says the sky is gonna fall
And there's zombies running 'round to kill us all
California's fallen straight into the sea
And the Chinese army took the whole Northeast
Well the news man's got tips on how to survive (stay tuned)
Right after top stories at five

By all accounts
Their war is going well
They all seem very pleased with themselves
Can we survive?
I'm afraid only time will tell

Right now, it seems, the whole world's gone to hell

Well the news man says bad things are all around (news flash! This just in)
Jesus Christ himself has just skipped town
And everything out in the Midwest, it's just like old times (there's rioting in the streets)
So watch your step across their color lines
Well the news man says we were all caught unaware
But he knows we're just all too stoned and drunk to care

By all accounts
Their war is going well
They all seem very pleased with themselves
Can we survive?
I'm afraid only time will tell

Right now, it seems, the whole world's gone to hell
Track Name: Henderson
Stepping out
All alone
Soon the night will recognize you
As one of its own

Going up
You've all bought in
Chasing dragons on a filthy couch
With fools who aren't your friends

Coming down
You're too high
Best not let the daylight hit you
For you may die

You better run on home
You better seek some shelter
Walk away from all that helter-skelter
You better run on home

You better run on home
You better seek some shelter
Walk away from all that helter-skelter
You better run on home

It starts to rain
On the dirty town
Somebody says, "Hey! I heard 'wild horses'
Were back around!"

Well she says, "Please?
I'm hurtin' bad..."
You say, "Girl I'll show you the best thing
That you've ever had!"

Now there she lies
She's cold and blue
You'll still have the needle in your arm
When they find both of you

You should have run on home
Boy, you should have sought some shelter
Walked away from all that helter-skelter
You should have run on home

You should have run on home
Boy, you should have sought some shelter
Walked away from all that helter-skelter
Instead you stayed and played the hand they dealt ya

You should have run on home

You should have run on home...
Track Name: Rome is Burning
Take me down
To the river and cleanse my soul
There's blood on the ground
And I think it's time for us to go

Rome is burning
Rome is burning

Look around

Their machine is on a roll
Gon' come and take your money

The corporation's in control
And they think it's funny
They're taking bread out of your mouths
While Rome lies burning

Rome is Burning

We tried to draw a line
In the sand

But our castle fell into
Enemy hands

Good Lord let freedom ring
And may all that money keep 'em warm
While Rome lies burning

Lay me down
By the fire and warm my soul
I know the Captain is drunk
And this ship is out of control

But hey, it's warm by the bow
So everyone gather 'round
And watch Rome burning down

Rome is burning down

*SOLO

Lay me down
In the river and drown my soul
There's blood all around
And I fear that it's our own

Rome is burning
Ohhh
Rome is burning...
Track Name: Blue Skies
Well I love my country
And I'll die to defend her
From enemies both foreign and homegrown

Y'see I've always been
A big student of history
And I don't know what page we're on

But you can look up
And smile for the drones

My once blue skies
Are now scarred with lines
They say "Hey man, there's
Nothing going on up there."

Meanwhile all of us rednecks
Gather guns for some ground war
They'll be coming by air

I said they will be coming by air

Oh yeah

One if by land
Two if by sea
My god those were simpler times

General Washington's men
Never had to face death
At the hands of robots that fly

These are fully armed robots and they fly

You think it's funny
But you better look out!

Well I love my country
And I'll die to defend her
From enemies both foreign and homegrown

Y'see I've always been
A big student of history
And I don't know what page we're on

But you can look up
And smile for the drones...
Track Name: On the Corner
Out on the corner
They're begging for change
I said,"Hey man, that's too much to ask for.
Things here tend to stay the same."

There's a war outside your window
But you watch it on your phone
They said someone would come to save us
But I guess that they stayed home

The red, the white, the blue
Tell me is your love for her still true
And after all the fighting we've been through
How could you stand to see her fall

When there's so much left to do?

Out on the corner
They're selling things you don't need
But,hey, if you give them all your money
They'll surely feed your disease

Outside your window
You hear somebody scream
Do you run outside to help them
Or cry, "Thank God that isn't me!"

The red, the white, the blue
Tell me is your love for her still true
And after all the things that we've been through
How could you stand to see her fall

When there's so much left to do?

Oh the red, the white, the blue
Faith, and hope, and change, they all fell through
There must be something more that we can do
I can't sit back and watch her fall

When there's so much left to do
Track Name: Breaking Up with a Nation
It's not like I don't know
Every action will have consequence
It's not like I believe
That anything will turn out fine

Oh In the beginning
There was a great shared consciousness
Oh but now it feels
Like we've completely lost our minds

Sweet, sweet Liberty
My strong girl from Ellis Isle
Well you know we had a good thing
We've both been unhappy for a while

Now sweet, sweet Liberty
Know that I'll love you til I die
But come this time tomorrow
I pray it's raining

When we say goodbye

Sweet, sweet Liberty
My strong girl from Ellis Isle
Well, you know we had a good thing
We've been unhappy for a while
Now sweet, sweet Liberty
Know that I'll love you til I die
But come this time tomorrow
I pray it's raining

When we say goodbye

Sweet, sweet Liberty
Know that I'll love you til I die
Come this time tomorrow
I pray it's raining...

...When we say goodbye
