lyrics

Crumbling foundation is all I can see when the bully comes around
Why do they turn away and close their eyes when the bully holds me down?
When he is done with us, you'll hear him prowling at your door
What happens when you can't protect the ones you love, you think that

(Everything is under control, everything's under control, everything's under control, everything is)

Mothers and daughters, throw up your arms
Wolf's on the prowl so raise the alarm
Sick of this sight, so much to do before daylight

Brothers and sisters, throw up your arms
Wolf's out back so raise the alarm
Dropping like flies, so much to lose before daylight

(Fig)
There's a bully by the flagpole, killer with a badge
Wolf's in the White House, villains light a match
The world's on fire, I'm cryin' the world's on fire
But no one pays attention while we're lying in ash
Fear - I felt it yesterday, I feel it today
I pray you wake up, just to feel it the same
And realize, no one is safe, no one is safe, no one is safe when the bullies come around
They've come for everyone else, and they will come for you and yours too,
So soon, what kind of tomorrow do you want to open your doors to?
With no God, and no government, who will protect you?
You can't run, can't hide no. I won't run, I'll fight ya.
You are exactly who you fight for
And you, are exactly who I write for.


Mothers and daughters, throw up your arms
Wolf's on the prowl so raise the alarm
Sick of this sight, so much to do before daylight

Brothers and sisters, throw up your arms
Wolf's out back so raise the alarm
Dropping like flies, so much to lose before daylight
