about

it must have felt like judgement day if you were stranded on that bridge in the lower 9th ward. you know what i'm talkin about.

lyrics

the devil appered
he appeaed ordinary
wearing a canary colored rose in his lapel
he’s telling a joke
and people applaud
he hands you his gun and he’s laughing out loud

you learn the secret handshake
and wear the old school tie
board private airplanes the drift through the night
underneath the flood water stage
they’re stranded on the bridge like a cage
tsunami siren punctures the night like it’s judgement day

church bells blow in the breeze
bullets rain down on me
gun fighting at dawn
daggers ready, pistols drawn
meanwhile tonight i pray on my knees
if you’ve got a weapon to use dear jesus use it on your enemies

now the phone lines are down
brittish petroleum and waters up to my knees
survillance cameras only see what they want to see
barges broke adrift on the waves
meanwhile i’m stranded on this bridge now 3 days
across the overpass
a well armed milita’s---waiting for me

church bells blow in the breeze
bullets rain down on me
gun fighting at dawn
daggers ready, pistols drawn
meanwhile tonight i pray on my knees
if you’ve got a weapon to use dear jesus use it on your enemie
