They say Iran has got the bomb
And wants to see us dead
They ask you to ignore the news
Watch the Super Bowl instead
Why should you be shocked
We're all just runnin out the clock

They say the rivers are polluted
And the waters not safe to drink
But they try to confuse us
And trick us not to think
Better head for the dock
We're all just runnin out the clock

Running out the clock
It's the only thing left to do
Running out the clock
It's running out for me and you

They say there's guns and murder
And violence on the street
But they tell you just to lie in bed
And hide beneath the sheet
Think you're sly like a fox?
And we're all just runnin out the clock

Well they say the food we eat
Is not even fit for a dog
But they sell it to you wholesale
As you walk around in a fog.
Might just sell your stock
Well we're all just runnin out the clock

Running out the clock
It's the only thing left to do
Running out the clock
Running out for me and you

Well you can try for the hail mary
you can go for it on fourth down
you can pray the saints are watching
and rooting for your hometown
pull up your sock
after all we're just running out the clock
