"There was a black rainbow
That rose up and covered the town!"
Exclaimed Howard Blue, 22
"I never even had a nightmare
Or a beautiful dream about this," He said
As he watched the warehouses burn

The hurricane pilot
Swoops into the 25-mile-wide eye
And he gasps 'cause the size of it was astounding
The towering columns of cumulonimbus stretched six miles high

Two friends remembered
A wooden leg
With a shoe
Detached from its owner while he slept
Twenty-two bodies found tied together in Violet

Living in a mausoleum
Making governments of our own
As the sky turned pink, four horses emerged from the water
Led by a stallion, they
Start grazing on neutral ground

We are the ones
The ones who stay behind, we stay behind
We are the ones
The ones who stay behind, we stay behind
