Son Volt – The Picture lyrics

Hurricanes in December, earthquakes in the heartland
Bad air index on a flashing warning sign
Bound for trouble, the picture is dirty
We'll know when we get there, if we'll find mercy

Flotsam and Jetsam in charge of the agency
Where truth gets twisted in danger of dissolving
When war is profit, and profit is war
We'll know when we get there, if we'll find mercy

Certified minds exacting a toll
Trying to fit a square block in a round hole
Heart of darkness facing a thousand bloodshot eyes
We'll know when we get there, if we'll find mercy
