Verse 1
The rockets are Glaring
The speakers are blaring
We’re marching tonight

We’re anxious and angry
Don’t try to save me
Cause God’s on our side

And momma’s so tired
Too dope sick and wired --
To get out alive

Two uniformed rednecks
Pulled over a Buick
On Jefferson Drive

Slower and dumber
Lower and numb-er
Distraction and lies

Forget your brother
Attack one another
And show off your prize

The guns have been blazing
We’re broken and fading
And crossing the line

Just under the surface
(the) American circus
Is coming alive

Give me your money
Your tired and hungry
Your beautiful lies --

The lonely and wasted
The uneducated
The deeper divide

Anointed and wealthy --
The sexy and healthy
Are drawing a line.

And parents in Clinton
Are sending their children
To march in a line

An American Experiment
Brown and red and blue and white
Any truth can seem self-evident –
By the dawn’s blinding light.

It’s artists, gypsies, showmen and shaman trying to get it right. It’s an invitation–to join. ... more
