lyrics

It could have been just like any other day
If not for the drug raids
They seemed so normal as they were cuffed and hauled away
Who could have thought? We should have known
Such a nice family, but it's all a show
It could have been just like any other day
If not for the blood in the rain

It could have been just your everyday commute
And then I heard the sirens and I flipped on the news
"Disobedient civilians have all lanes dammed,
Arrests are being made, wrists are being slapped."
So I cranked down the window as I rolled past
"Get a boss! Take a bath!"
That's what the others shouted, but I blared the horn
With my fist in the air and my gas to the floor

Give me death or give me rain
I feel so numb, better give me pain
Bomb threats and hurricanes
Or a new berry flavor from the coffee tray

It could have been just your forgotten school day
If not for the drills and the bells that saved
The fire started someplace cool and safe
Who could have thought?
We should have known
"Thousands dead," the leaders spoke
I pulled at their cuffs while they were at each others' throats
Does this mean I get to go home?

Give me death or give me rain
I feel so numb, better give me pain
Bomb threats and hurricanes
Or a new berry flavor from the coffee tray
Liberty is too much strain

It could have been just like any other day
If not for the blood in the rain

about

Mischief Brew Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Emerging from the undead ashes of PA punk troupe The Orphans, Mischief Brew started with a scratchy demo tape in 2000 and has since spread the good word of anarchy, hilarity, and rebellion across state lines and even the Atlantic Ocean a few times. We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
