Lyrics

I hear the shock jocks screaming
Pointing the finger of blame
Voices of middle aged white men
Rolling on a river of shame

I feel fear in the light of my flat screen
I got fear-mongers on my phone
Rip off merchants and racketeers
Keep bringing the bad news home

There’s a blood moon rising on the highway
I got an empty feeling…what’ve we become?
A million voices screaming
But I just keep on dreaming
Red flags of Mayday in the sun

I hear billionaires moaning
Tangled in the web they’ve spun
Drowning in creature comforts
Proud of the work they’ve done
They keep on blaming the victim
The wretched the weak and the poor
Invisible hands are grinding us down
Don’t know who to believe anymore

There’s a blood moon rising on the highway
I hear the old school singing “We will overcome!”
A million voices screaming
But I just keep on dreaming
Red flags of Mayday in the sun

In the sun
Red flags of Mayday in the sun

There’s a blood moon rising on the highway
I hear the old school singing “We will overcome!”
A million voices screaming
But I just keep on dreaming
Red flags of Mayday in the sun
