Revolution Ballad

You had to stop before we even got started
Slip into something more flame retardant
I hope the hard times stop and the good times roll
And trust the beat you keep will have a little soul
You’ve done your time and not done in your mind
Props to the feet planted over the line
It itches and it frays every crook and bend
Now you’re drinking to all good thing’s end
So stop, my friend

This is a ballad for the revolution
This is a ballad for your revolution

The world has come unglued and the history is wearing thin
I don’t know where I’m going to or even where I’ve been
There’s a boarded up house on a crumbling foundation
A welcoming corner in a lunatic nation
Though the wind may blow and the boat may rock there’s a key that fits this lock
We all gotta stop now and then

This is a ballad for the revolution
This is a ballad for your revolution

Paint a picture in the pouring rain
Search the dial for that lost refrain
Counting down the minutes and we’ve still got time to kill
It’s like it all stands still
Watch the ashes wash down the drain
I can’t complain and I won’t explain
Bleed them all dry until we’ve got none left to spill
And we’ve had our fill

So stop right now
You’re ready to drop and you’ve gotta get out

This is a ballad for the revolution
This is a ballad for your revolution

This is a ballad for the revolution
This is a ballad for our revolution
