"Flood" as written by and Ralph Stanley Carter Stanley....
Flowers wilt when they lose the rain. And the sun will leave them dead again. For how long can we live like this? Is it eternal? Face to face, defy disgrace. The fevered death of a nation. Consent to bleed, the tyrant leads us to our decimation. Here it comes, the final word. Can I open my eyes and watch it burn. One day we will be sickened by life as we realize. Up against the wall. Our bitter freedom. A fight for survival. A means to an end, forever. How long will it take to destroy our lives under the sun? And enforce the limits that will confine us? Beyond broken eyes. I thirst for a life without hurt. Devoid of fault, without deception. Hollow eyes. There's no god to save you, save me. Onward we march as the day grows dim. This pestilence leads to revulsion. Cannot taste the blood of the martyr until you face this revolution. One day we will forge a path of survival.
