Let It Rip

By Bruce Clifford

So you got caught with your pants down dirty old man
Government aside
Setting the world on fire

You got locked up in the cage dirty old man
Politicians envy
We're not the country we thought we were

Let it rip
Let it rip
Let the side effects cut you down at your hips

Let it rip
Let it rip
Let the wind take away the stench of this political shift
Rest in peace

So you got caught running away with a rock 'n roll Cutie
Covering up the noise as the network news betrays
You're tied to the distance with your back up against the wall
Lies and distractions of this chemical called war

Let it rip
Let it rip
Let the side effects cut you down at your hips

Let it rip
Let it rip
Let the wind take away the stench of this political shift

Let it rip
Let it rip
Let the memory subside before you take another trip

Let it rip
Let it rip
Let the radioactive glow lock up your lying lips

Let it rip
Rest in peace

So you got caught with your pants down dirty old man
You got locked up in the cage not knowing where to stand
Your side effects are glowing in a radioactive way
Cities are exploding as you get caught up in your own destructive rave

Let it rip
Let it rip
Let the side effects cut you down at your hips

Let it rip
Let it rip
Let the wind take away the stench of this
political shift
Rest in peace
