Kickin’ Up A Shitstorm

the weather woman’s laughin like it’s gonna be just another day
and the sun comes up and everybody sleep walking in a dream
and they don’t know how but it always turns out OK
wonder what’s gonna happen when there’s nothin moving on the screen

are you gonna wake up
when it starts to shake up
and the lifeline to your eyes
starts to break up
are you gonna wonder
when you hear the thunder
and it starts kickin up a shitstorm
wonder what you gonna get under

well the old man says boy can you pass the mirror test
when the zombies come you know you gonna have to wake up
do you wanna push a button pop a pill kiss the screen like the rest
what you gonna do when your last good reception starts to break up

see it on a hashtag
gonna be a big drag
when it blows up in your face
like a fucked up airbag
are you gonna show up
when it starts to blow up
when it’s kickin up a shitstorm
and everything around you gettin tore up

well it’s just another dream and that’s all that it ever was
and it’s a long way back from a ride on the nightmare side
but you wonder when you’re out lookin for another buzz
bout the leaves shaking in the trees
and the ripples in the water down where the river’s wide

are you gonna wake up
when the lifeline to your eyes starts to break up
are you gonna wonder
when you hear the thunder
and it starts kicking up a shitstorm
wonder what you gonna get under
when it starts kickin up a shitstorm
and everything around you gettin tore up
