When we sleep we'll think of tornadoes
The kind that will tear down this town
And I know there can always be heroes
Who never look up but always down

And the cold fronts will be met with the warm ones
The TVs and sirens will all be on guard
Up with the new and down with the old sons
It's when you can't sleep that you try too hard

The new ones always try to beat the old
Underneath the sirens try to take control
The warm front's heading straight into the cold
And everything's beginning to unfold

I could pretend that I was a new king
And all of my laws would all be obeyed
We both know that you wouldn't do anything
But try to break every law that I made

So keep your barbed wire and your electric fence posts
For your kennel and for your pond
And next time the clouds come in from the west coast
Wait for the funnels and stay bended and calm

The new ones always try to beat the old
Underneath the sirens try to take control
The warm front's heading straight into the cold
And everything's beginning to unfold
