Alert Status Red

Album: White Light Rock & Roll Review (2004)
  • In the wilderness uncountable voices
    Earplugs for the birds and the animals
    And blinders for your beast of burden, the will For learning
    These books were made for burning
    In the wilderness
    Beneath the ancient sand lies crushed and tanned Those sapphire girls
    May we never forget you

    Alert status red
    But the sun comes up instead

    In the wilderness the only place to find freedom is in the dictionary
    Under "F"
    Men in holes, men in caves, men in chains I ask But the store clerk needn't check
    Man I forget which came first
    The bad idea or me befallen by it?
    Not giving a shit may we never forget you
    May we never forget you

    Alert status red
    But the sun comes up instead
    Alert status red
    But the sun comes up instead

    In the wilderness
    Senile live the zealous
    Lost to the treasures that compel us
    Muted down like patriots amiss
    You know I'm jealous of how you can just turn them off
    Those bad ideas that feel so soft
    May they never forget you

    Alert status red
    But the sun comes up instead
    Alert status red
    But the sun comes up instead
    Alert status red
    But the sun comes up instead

    Alert status red
    But the sun comes up insteadWriter/s: MATTHEW GOOD
