Truth to power

Impaled Nation; Shadows Of The Ex

 

Verse:

Look into the setting sun, you couldn’t run

Clown shoes a floppin’, normal was done

But the Agent of Chaos made to exit the stage

Ruled by superstition, hatred and rage

 

Pre-Chorus:

Now comes the calm before the storm

A return to business after years out of norm

 

Verse:

Won’t have the chance; no My Pillow secretary of state

He gave us disaster after promising great

Veritable smoking crater all caused by one man,

Name of The Donald, not of The Dan

 

Pre-Chorus:

Now comes the calm before the storm

A return to business after years out of norm

 

Chorus:

 

From under Vesuvius and the shadow of ex

A mature relationship instead of juvenile sex

From swamp water deluge to a clear mountain stream

From sun-rotted haggis to peaches and cream

 

Verse:

Impaled nation screams enough is enough

Nothing comes easy, we’ve still got it rough

But the light in the tunnel is hope and faith

May have an income instead of having to pay

 

Pre-Chorus:

Now comes the calm before the storm

A return to business after years out of norm

 

Chorus:

From under Vesuvius and the shadow of ex

A mature relationship instead of juvenile sex

From swamp water deluge to a clear mountain stream

From sun-rotted haggis to peaches and cream

 

END

Excellent, Mike. That 'sun-rotted haggis' was a great way of describing it.
