Lyrics

  • BRUTE FORCE AND IGNORANCE HAVE JUST HIT TOWN
  • LOOKING LIKE SURVIVORS FROM THE LOST AND FOUND
  • BRUTE FORCE AND IGNORANCE HAVE COME TO PLAY
  • ONE NIGHT STAND AT EIGHT O’CLOCK THE THEY’LL BE ON THEIR WAY
  • THIS OLD TOWNS EXPLODING AND THE MAYOR’S UPTIGHT
  • HE’D LIKE TO MAKE IT TO THE SHOW
  • BUT HE KNOW’S IT’S NOT HIS NIGHT
  • HE’S GOT TO BE BEHOLDEN TO HIS LADY SPOUSE BUT SHE’S PUT THE THUMBSCREWS ON
  • HIM AND SNUCK OUT OF THE HOUSE
  • THERE SHE GOES
  • PICTURE ON THE POSTER RAISED AN EYEBROW OR TWO
  • AT FIFTY FIVE TO SEVEN LORD YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN THE QUE
  • CITY SLICK AND COUNTRY HICK, THEY CAME ONE AND ALL
  • A TRAFFIC LIGHT GIRL AND THE DOWN HOME KIDS ASSEMBLED AT THE HALL
  • BRUTE FORCE AND IGNORANCE YES THAT THE NAME
  • YOUNG FOLKS GONNA MISS THEM NOW THEY’VE GONNA AWAY
  • WELL THE SHOW GOT SO CRAZY TODAY THEY TOOK THE BILLBOARDS DOWN I’LL NEVER
  • FORGET THE SCENE LAST NIGHT WHEN THE BAND WAS ESCORTED OUT OF TOWN
  • THEY SPLIT OUT LIKE SLOW MOTION I’M SAD TO SAY
  • AFTER THE CONFUSION IT’LL NEVER BE THE SAME
  • BUT I TOOK A WALK DOWN MAINSTREET JUST TO PASS THE TIME
  • AND I COULD STILL HERE THAT MUSIC ROLLING THROUGH MY MIND
  • BRUTE FORCE AND IGNORANCE THAT’S TRUE HIT TOWN
  • AND IF YOU WANNA FIND ANYBODY THEY’RE ALL AT THE LOST AND FOUND
