    In the howling wind comes a stinging rain
    See it driving nails into the souls on the tree of pain
    From the firefly a red orange glow
    See the face of fear running scared in the valley below

    Bullet the blue sky
    Bullet the blue sky
    Bullet the blue
    Bullet the blue

    In the locust wind comes a rattle and hum
    Jacob wrestled the angel and the angel was overcome
    You plant a demon seed, you raise a flower of fire
    See them burning crosses, see the flames higher and higher

    Bullet the blue sky
    Bullet the blue sky
    Bullet the blue
    Bullet the blue

    This guy comes up to me
    His face red like a rose on a thorn bush
    Like all the colors of a royal flush
    And he's peeling off those dollar bills
    Slappin' 'em down, one hundred, two hundred

    And I can see those fighter planes
    And I can see those fighter planes
    Across the mud huts where the children sleep
    Through the alleys of a quiet city street
    You take the staircase to the first floor

    You turn the key and slowly unlock the door
    As a man breathes into a saxophone
    And through the walls you hear the city groan
    Outside it's America, outside it's America

    Across the field you see the sky ripped open
    See the rain through a gaping wound
    Pounding on the women and children
    Who run into the arms of America
