The Storm

21st-century blues for an ironically bookended week.

Storm is raging
Trouble’s on its way
Cars are floating
Down the west highway

Fire’s burning
In my neighborhood
Water’s rising
But I thought it never would

They came and told me
Got to move away
I didn’t listen
Said I’m gonna stay

No where to turn to
No place left to hide
Gonna build up a sea wall
Wait it out inside

Wind starts to howling
Storm starts moving in
Y’all gonna rise up
No place left to stay

Full moon is rising
Hard times coming fast
You can’t deny it
Change has come at last … at last

Many angrier electric versions available.
