D                        G
Hurricanes in December - earthquakes in the heartland

Bad air index on a flashing warning sign
D                   G
Bound for trouble - the picture is dirty

We'll know when we get there
Em             D
If we'll find mercy

Verse 2/Chorus

Flotsam and Jetsam in charge of the agency
Where truth gets twisted in danger of dissolving
When war is profit and profit is war

We'll know when we get there
If we'll find mercy

Repeat intro

Verse 3/Chorus

Certified minds exacting a toll
Trying to fit a square peg in a round hole
A heart of darkness facing 1,000 bloodshot eyes

We'll know when we get there
If we'll find mercy

Repeat intro

We'll know when we get there
If we'll find mercy
