In the howling wind comes a stinging rain
Into the souls on the tree of pain
See the face of fear

Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue
In the locust wind comes a rattle and hum
And the angel was overcome
You raise a flower of fire
See the flames higher and higher
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue

His face red like a rose in a thorn bush
And he's peeling off those dollar bills
One hundred, two hundred
And I can see those fighter planes
Across the mud huts where the children sleep
You take the staircase to the first floor
As a man breathes into a saxophone
Outside is America

See the rain through a gaping wound
Who run
Of America
