Los Angeles Is Burning!

So the other day I was listening to the radio and I got to hear the new Bad Religion song. I was so stoked, but there's no one who can share my joy because A: no one I know likes BR except Tavis and Russ and B: no one has heard the new song and C: even if the 2 people who care about BR won't get how excited I was to hear the new song because they dont live in California.

So for your reading pleasure I'm posting the lyrics to the new Bad Religion song, "Los Angeles is Burning" (under the cut)

Los Angeles Is Burning
somewhere high in the desert
they're a curtain of blue
sane and skirts up in the wind
but down here in the city of blind lights
the pencils in our hand are witherin
and you can't deny that living is easy
if you never look behind the scenery
it's show time for drag lines
and Bedlam is dreaming of rain

when the hills of Los Angeles are burning
palm trees are candles in the murder wind
so many lives are on the breeze
even the stars are ill at ease
and Los Angeles is burning

this is not a test
of the emergency broadcast system
where malibu fires and radio towers
can spy on a dance again
and i cannot believe the media mecca
they're only trying to peddle reality
catch it on prime time story at nine:
"the whole world is going insane"

when the hills of Los Angeles are burning
palm trees are candles in the murder wind
so many lives are all abreeze
even the stars are ill at ease
and Los Angeles is burning

a placard reads:
The End of Days
shock of roundabouts
are bending in the haze
more a question than a curse:
How Could Hell Be Any Worse?
the flames are started
the cameras running
so take warning

when the hills of Los Angeles are burning
palm trees are candles in the murder wind so many lives are all abreeze
even the skies are ill at ease
and Los Angeles is burning


It's got a really nice sound, so go out and buy "The Empire Strikes First" when it comes out in..June..I think..June or July.
