Mouths of dust and ruptured windpipe
Fairytales for lying cheats
They're lashing out like wolves in barbed wire
Ring the bells and start the fires now
The red, white and the blue
Has always been what led you
If you don't do something
They'll steal it all from under you

Board decisions, poor children
Watch the world through gunsight eyes
I hijack trainwrecks, sell the wheels
No way out unless you steal it all

The red, white and the blue
Has always been what led you
If you don't do something
They'll steal it all from under you
You beat us black and blue
We're coming back to find you

The red, white and the blue
Has always been what led you
If you don't do something
They'll steal it all from under you
