The full moon party

Is over

 

There is

No more getting fresh

 

There are barricades

Across the road

And there is military

On every corner

 

This morning I wonder

If they arrested sister

 

This afternoon I wonder

If brother was shot

 

This evening

I don’t want to think about

The rest

 

Not now

 

Not now the blocks are locked off

Not now the city is shut down

 

Not now

 

The tiger has been set loose

To prey upon the frightened cattle

 

What is happening

And who started the fire

I do not know

 

Without signal

Without phone

 

All I read

Are the interests of companies

And their generals

 

Man

 

This golden land

Is red with blood

 

This wheel is history
