People Are So Ready to Rage


People are so ready to rage.
With open mouths they shout...
And a madness pours right out.

People are so ready to rage.
To say today they're crazy,
Would not today amaze!

Gone,
From them...
Is any sign that hints,
Of an innocence.

And gone,
Are ballooned parades...
People use to love,
And...
Celebrate.

People are so ready to rage.
With open mouths they shout...
And a madness pours right out.

People are so ready to rage.
To say today they're crazy,
Would not today amaze!

Gone,
From them...
Is any sign that hints,
Of an innocence.

And gone,
Are ballooned parades...
People use to love,
And...
Celebrate.

What their exercising is their right to bleed.
What their exercising is their right to bleed.
What their exercising is their right to bleed.
What their exercising is their right!
And...
Gone,
From them...
Is any sign that hints,
Of an...Innocence.

And gone...
Are ballooned parades,
People use to love
And...
Celebrate.

People are so ready to rage.
Yes!
People are so ready to rage.

And...
Gone,
From them...
Is any sign that hints,
Of an...Innocence.

People are so ready to rage.
Yes!
People are so ready to rage.

And...
Gone,
From them...
Is any sign that hints,
Of an...Innocence.

People are so ready to rage.
And...
Gone,
From them...
Is any sign that hints,
Of an...Innocence.

People are so ready to rage.
Yes, yes.
The people are so ready to rage.
Yes, yes.
The people are so ready to rage.

And gone,
From them...
Is any sign that hints,
Of an innocence.

And gone,
Are ballooned parades...
People use to love,
And...
Celebrate.

People are so ready to rage.
Crazy people getting evil.
And ready to rage.

How can the people get so evil.
And ready to rage.
Crazy people getting evil.
And ready to rage.

How can the people get so evil.
And ready to rage.
Crazy people getting evil.
And ready to rage.

People are so ready to rage.
These crazy people getting evil.
And ready to rage.

And gone,
From them...
Is any sign that hints,
Of an innocence.

People are so ready to rage.
People are so ready to rage.
People are so ready to rage.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
