lyrics

The Blitz

there is no way out of here
i’d heard that said before
not like you could fly away
or simply close the door

drugs or booze can do it
there’s suicide i guess
living in a blaze of songs
you try to blot the mess

still the bad guys cometh
and hatred draws its gun
such an endless blood lust
the blitz again begun

i went down to see them
the armbands and old lies
people seek a reason
and pray slim conscience dies

tired of the tension
that logic can require
worn out by the moral noose
just longing for the fire

chorus

we came to this new world
which soon looked like the old
killing off the natives
blocks where slaves got sold

i had hoped to vanish
before the ramparts fell
now i feel the earthquakes
and watch the shadow swell

still the bad guys cometh
and hatred draws its gun
such an endless blood lust
the blitz again begun
