I saw David Johansen singing to an empty room.
I saw neo- fascists dressed like holy men
I saw caskets driving down the interstate
I felt the temperature was changing
There was static on the radio and I turned it up

We're all gonna get what we have coming to us
We're all gonna get what we deserve
Spools run out of thread
one day our lungs are gonna run out of breath
we're all gonna get what we deserve

Well, the lights were blinding and the air was filled with smoke
The acidic smell of vomit crept up my nose
I saw tempests in the desert
I saw nuclear horizons
I heard the pipes creak and moan

We're all gonna get what we have coming to us
We're all gonna get what we deserve
Spools run out of thread
one day our lungs are gonna run out of breath
we're all gonna get what we deserve

I saw "Fear It" written on a bathroom wall
I saw the truth spray painted on a passing box car
I was lost in America, but I still had hope
I heard the applause and I saw David take his bow
