It all began with an experiment that failed
Meant for the enemy, unleashed on us
Everything that was on course has been derailed
We're all caught in the rush
Holding the poison within
This battle no one wins
No

Stand
The Stand

Plague came down on us like a ton of bricks
Generals spilled their bag of tricks
Like an avalanche roaring over you
Now there is nothing left to do
No one left to burn
Captain Trips has taken all

No
Stand
The Stand
Try to understand
The Stand

Stand
The Stand
Try to understand
The Stand

    General CommentThis song is about Stephen King's novel, The Stand. It's about a flu-like plague that wipes out most of humanity. The disease is also called "Captain Trips."
