Will god help us when America burns
we're vicious creatures and we're all taking turns
will god help us when the insurrection rages
we've got a drug
we're burning pages of love
(the dead desire fertility
stolen from a distant scene
and all your drugs and your machines
can't save you now
we will invoke forgotten names
smash the sets of our hurricanes
and when we reach the living end
we will begin again)

will god help us when America burns
we're vicious creatures and we're all taking turns
will god help us when the insurrection rages
we've got a drug
we're burning pages of love

    General CommentA wrathful figure yearning to destroy our broken post-modern civilization. When it's us against nature, we will lose.
