You better watch out if there’s rough seas,

Cause those are the ones that break levies.

Water rushes through my neighborhood,

Surely this can’t be good.

 

Waves rushing faster than white water rapids,

Oh Mother Nature is so savage.

When it rains, it fucking pours,

The water is breaking down all my doors.

 

And my house is underwater,

Around me, all I see is slaughter.

I’m making smoke signals on my roof,

Someone help my house isn’t weatherproof.

 

Better watch your back,

Cause a hurricane just blew through,

I think it brought a tornado with it, too.

 

I hope you’ve got a weapon on you,

Cause if you don’t you’re fucking screwed.

It’s do or die in the ruins of the city,

Winner takes all, there’s no more pity.

 

There’s a lot for adversity to overcome,

And here’s a good rule of thumb:

Grab a gun and shoot to kill,

This is as important as the battle of bunker hill.

 

Better watch your back,

Cause a hurricane just blew through,

I think it brought a tornado with it, too.

 

Welcome to your new home,

In the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Inside these walls, you’re safe from the outside,

And everyone just watches your pain, nationwide.

 

There’s no house to go back to,

It was taken by the storm that blew through.

Nothing is left to your name,

Except rationed food and some damn good aim.

 

Watch your back,

When the hurricane blows through,

Cause it’ll bring a tornado with it, too.

If you don’t have a gun, you’ll be done for,

Cause it’s deadlier than the streets of Baltimore.
