oh say can you see...

the streets are on fire
engulfed in tear gas and rage
a tattered flag flies upside down

young men with no future
full of fury and hate
their anger threatens to drown

a reporter tells the tale
with an evil glint in his eye
in high definition stereo sound

a boy lies dead
his mother wails in the night
while the city burns to the ground
