lyrics

These are daunting times
That much is certain
History in the making
From the man behind the curtain
No don't put the brakes on
Let us all run riot
When they hand you their deal
Just say you won't buy it
If you think you don't matter
You think wrong
Can you hear that distant thunder
They're playing our song

These are crazy days
With a crazy man in charge
He's doing it all for the glory
Wants his story writ large
He dreams of waging war
That is his vow
He aims to end the world
Apocalypse now
If you think you can't stop him
You're quite incorrect
Drag him out into the street
And cut him off at the neck

Sleep tight my darling
Sleep tight my darling
And say goodnight
And say goodnight
Sleep tight my baby
It'll be all right
It'll be all right
This land is your land
And this land is my land
It is dynamite
It'll be all right

These are desperate days
You can feel it in the air
The world is polarized
By a man with bad hair
He talks like a tyrant
His message is clear
He gives you his hate
He plays on your fear
If you think you are helpless
Here is the twist
He has no power
When you resist
