BLOWING THE SKY AWAY

This angry age with all the road rage
and an attitude where everything’s crude
and out of control
and thrown in a hole where the sun can’t shine
on the borderline where the darks clouds soar
and the sun shines no more than an hour a day
oh yeah they’re blowing the sky away.

I’m thinking about the way people shout
and the things they do to each other too.
If they don’t stop it soon we’ll hear a big boom
and the moon won’t shine on the borderline
where the dark clouds soar and the moon shines no more
than it did yesterday
hey hey they’re blowing the sky away.

Don’t cry to the moon when the blue sky’s gone
and the sun that shone has gone away
for the damage is done when the blue sky’s gone.

It started with a word that everyone heard
and before you knew it nothing could stop it,
or block it
for a rocket was shot
and then it that moment in time
on the borderline the dark clouds soared and the world shone no more
for it was Armageddon day
oh yeah they blew the sky away.

Don’t cry to the moon when the blue sky’s gone
and the sun that shone has gone away
for the damage is done when the blue sky’s gone.

So then is it much to too late for us today
or will the hatred of men and women blow the sky away
until all that will be left will be either madness or death
in a world full of despair,
so tell me is there anyone out there who cares?
