The band in my head

Verse:
Take cover, there's a storm on the horizon,
Hell, it's already here--the damage is done
I've heard that the swamp is drained,
But backwater monsters were unchained
 
Pre-Chorus:
If seeing is believing, I must be blind
There's no silver lining that I can find
 
Verse:
They say if you're in a hole, the digging should stop
He's the bully in the nation's China Shop,
Waving a red flag in the first morning's light,
To enrage himself for the imaginary fight
 
Pre-Chorus:
If seeing is believing, I must be blind
There's no silver lining that I can find
 
Chorus:
"I know everything," are the words that he's said,
It's "damn the torpedoes and it's full speed ahead" 
To the enraged captain, it's seek and destroy 
Any work and no play makes Donny a dull boy
 
Verse:
Time was it was an office of respect,
Suddenly waiting for reality to take effect
Here in America we've become third world,
What was taken for granted now so unsure
 
Pre-Chorus:
He might be leaving but his kind remain,
Our future uncertain and circling the drain
 
Chorus:
"I know everything," are the words that he's said,
It's "damn the torpedoes and it's full speed ahead" 
To the enraged captain, it's seek and destroy 
Any work and no play makes Donny a dull boy
 
END

Perfect, Mike. All we can hope is that they are increasingly outnumbered.
