The band that never was

Verse:

Missing in action, it is missing indeed

Where is the common sense we so sorely need?

At the worst possible time, this era of contention,

it’s done a runner in this time of dissension


 

Pre-Chorus:

Argue’s in the air and it doesn’t fight fair

What have we done? It’s buyer beware


 

Verse:

Chaos rules a day, fear all around

The good ship USA has run hard aground

No agreement on where we should turn

250 years, and what have we learned?


 

Pre-Chorus:

Argue’s in the air and it doesn’t fight fair

What have we done? It’s buyer beware


 

Chorus:

“Have you seen me?” Lost and alone,

A trip to nowhere, destination unknown

Asking for a friend, sing the milk carton blues

Complete disaster today in the news


 

Verse:

No questions asked if you return it unharmed,

Hands tied, the nation cries and we are unarmed

At the mercy of crazy and delusion,

The nation reels in pain and confusion


 

Pre-Chorus:

Argue’s in the air and it doesn’t fight fair

What have we done? It’s buyer beware


 

“Have you seen me?” Lost and alone,

A trip to nowhere, destination unknown

Asking for a friend, sing the milk carton blues

Complete disaster today in the news


 

END
