lyrics

Man, I ain’t a hero, and I ain’t a saint,
But I’ll count my blessings before it’s too late.
The devil, Jesus, lord knows I can’t keep running away,
But as long as I’m running I don’t need a place to stay.

Is there anyone out there tonight?
This junkyard’s burning,
And we’re crawling on the edge of a knife.
And if you see a shadow cross through the fire-light,
Just tell me, If there’s anyone out there tonight.

They’re shipping off to a foreign land,
Where spent casings litter the sand.
Some say the Red White and Blue can’t withstand,
They blame it all on sleight-of-hand.

In the valley the wells have run dry,
Who’s to say we gave it our best try?
We blew out the mountain, turned the ground to dust,
But where are we now and what’s left for us?

Is there anyone out there tonight?
All’s quiet on every front but there’s no end in sight.
It may be radio silence, but it doesn’t mean there ain’t a fight,
So tell me, Is there anyone out there tonight?

Now there’s this two lane road ahead of me,
It goes for miles on through this desert but there’s nothing to see.
Except burnt out buildings, laced with diesel,
Remnants of time when it all came so easy.
Bandits patrol the underpasses,
I guess these roads just weren’t meant to last us.
They ambush at dawn, they raise their flags up high,
they tell you to fight for your life until the day you die.

Is there anyone out there tonight?
Babylon’s about to fall but there’s no one left to indict.
Its gonna get real lonely In our corner of paradise,
So tell me, will there be somebody out there tonight?
