Every cities got an artery where the blind breaks down
An avenue or a boulevard and a boy who wears a crown
Indignant life styles implies simply lack of means
Dognatical authoritarians dictate the cities remain


A promise to go to heaven won't put salvation in sight
Whirlwind is coming, whirlwind is coming
A promise to go to heaven won't put salvation in sight
Whirlwind is comin' down on me


When the factory shut down so did the place he lived
Blood money for junk bonds by a white collar fugitive
All the tax free incentives ain't goin' to help him now
Generations of job security gone out like the horse and plow


A promise to go to heaven won't put salvation in sight
Whirlwind is coming, whirlwind is coming
A promise to go to heaven won't put salvation in sight
Whirlwind is comin' down on me


My old man worked his troubled life in a nowhere dead end
He drank the pain away, I'll be damned if that's me having my dreams robbed
The working class carries a country that has been rotting inside for years
The rigs cuffed my old man in the front yard, I saw through my eyes of tears


Whirlwind is coming, whirlwind is coming
A promise to go to heaven won't put salvation in sight
Whirlwind is comin' down on me
