The Whirlwind - text

"From zero to sixty
In one or two lifetimes
Can't find the criminal
Just follow the pipeline
I'll sing for my supper
Of fuel sand and shot
And pray that the cannons
Will pound the guilt I've got
Unwilling to negotiate
They fire from the precipice
An army of grizzlies
Divide up the rest of us
The problem I have
With the movie is just that
The cameras were shaky
And just missed the bloodbath
An ash-covered highway
Silent and frozen
I dreamed that you held me
It was me you were holdin'
I stood in the whirlwind
Of shrapnel and sawdust
Outside of the motel
And then it was just us
The borders are closin'
No one goes in or out
The assets all frozen
In sixteen Swiss bank accounts
A red raging migraine
A fear of hegemony
I looked back, I heard the shot
My friend said, "Wasn't me"
How can you sit back and wait?
The battle is raging
Hold on man, I'm comin'
Just straightening my cage first
Three hundred closed caskets
A world famous symphony
Of angry ghosts singin'
And marching from Wounded Knee
An ash-covered highway
Silent and frozen
I dreamed that you held me
It was me you were holdin'
I stood in the whirlwind
Of shrapnel and sawdust
Outside of the motel
And then it was just us
A colonial investment
In steel ore and iron
The natives are restless
Can't blame 'em for tryin'
The lightning blows through
The legion it enters
The hail it follows
And smashes the center
I sit 'round the table
Of strangers and friends
My dad knows it's comin'
Still, he pretends
My brother, he smiles
Reveals the secret
The stepmother shudders
She just can't believe it
An ash-covered highway
Silent and frozen
I dreamed that you held me
It was me you were holdin'
I stood in the whirlwind
Of shrapnel and sawdust
Outside of the motel
And then it was just us."
