Insurrection at Newtown

Destruction in the water
crashing through
the fields tonight
poison in pleasure
deception in a western light
some corruption
insurrection at Newtown now
corruption
insurrection at Newtown now

Cutting through the backyard
dusting out across the trees
all the way from Detroit
by way of the dead seas

Come corruption
insurrection at Newtown now
some corruption
insurrection at Newtown now

Ringing in the wires
prayers to the prop as cross
sweating through the monitor
righteous in light of loss
no authentic contradictions
who you gonna bleed on now
all over the green back
upscale death at the plow

Come corruption
insurrection at Newtown now
corruption
insurrection at Newtown now
