Song lyrics from the band in my head

Verse:
Troubled water runs swift and deep
Worship a false idol, so you shall reap
You want what you wish to be the truth,
An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
 
Pre-Chorus:
Common sense so long past tense,
Let the days of madness and folly commence
 
Verse:
Delusional men who howl at the moon
Worship darkness instead of high noon
So under a spell they cannot see
Cult leader's all around for you and me
 
Pre-Chorus:
Common sense now so past tense,
Let the days of madness commence
 
Chorus:
The coming storm is already here,
A hurricane of lies built around fear
So many respond to his dog-whistle call,
Overwhelming the defenses of one and all
 
Verse:
 
Two armed camps ready for war,
Pushed to breaking, won't give anymore
Compromise is surrender in this nightmare day
Got to punish with the words you say
 
Pre-Chorus:
Common sense now so past tense,
Let the days of madness commence
 
Chorus:
The coming storm is already here,
A hurricane of lies built around fear
So many respond to his dog-whistle call,
Overwhelming the defenses of one and all
 
END
