I awake to the sound of cities burning… Song 313

The sky is falling. The sky is falling. Not really. That world keeps turning no matter how many shots are fired. In the end, it really doesn’t make much difference. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Everything really just keeps going on the path laid down before. The ride no less bumpy. The company no more pleasant. It’s all part of the plan…

Song 313: “Shots Fired”

I awake to the sound of cities burning
I awake to nothing changed
Above it all a devil’s laughing
Above it all the world keeps turning

It’s not over, shots fired
It’s not over, shots fired

I resist desire
I resist decay
Above it all a devil’s laughing
Above it all the world keeps turning

It’s not over, shots fired
It’s not over, shots fired

I feel it in my bones
Something is amiss
Above it all a devil’s laughing
Above it all the world keeps turning

It’s not over, shots fired
It’s not over, shots fired

Nothing changes, the world keeps turning
This changes nothing, the world keeps turning

It’s not over, shots fired
It’s not over, shots fired
