    Times, The Baptist

    Hey, old man, where are the days you talk of ?
    Old man, the good old days have been taken out back
    And beaten the shit out of.
    They have been attacked, they have been judged
    They have been banned, and we’ve never been as fucked.
    And these nights, they are getting longer
    Boys with long hair, and dirty needles in their lockers
    Smoke blowing in our face, red growing on our eyes
    I hope to God we are all equal, or we’re all going to die

    I’m going real far, and I’m going real fast,
    Into nowhere ; a place of the forgotten past

    Now the fields are burning, the boys that lit them are all men
    They are pouring concrete into where their ancestors lived in
    The victims, they are now the victors
    The flags, they stand for the enemy
    But the clouds are still the clouds
    And they still wash their sins away
