Song from my head band

Verse:
Rockets red glare over all that I see,
Colors everything of what may come to be
Suddenly uncertain, our future on trial
Nothing but blame up and down the dial
 
Pre-chorus:
With every hour gone, the disbelief grows
Place your bets, round and round she goes
 
Verse:
Playing Russian Roulette with a fully-loaded gun
Our social paranoia beyond and second to none
Spin and fire is the last thing you'll hear
Runaway delusions and ruled by fear
 
 
Pre-chorus:
With every hour gone, the disbelief grows
Place your bets, round and round she goes
 
Chorus:
Manic in overdrive at the speed of light
It's all their fault scream the left and the right
Manic in overdrive, it's worse every day
Future is cold and come what may
 
Verse:
Into the ether spout words of division, 
With certain misguided to replace indecision 
The more absolute the more we waiver
A false god has become their savior
 
 
Pre-chorus:
With every hour gone, the disbelief grows
Place you bets, round and round she goes
 
Chorus:
Manic in overdrive at the speed of light,
It's all their fault scream the left and the right
Manic in overdrive, it's worse every day
Future is cold and come what may
 
END
