From The Recordings Html

This was written as I watched the news coverage of the L.A. riots in response to the verdict letting the cops that beat Rodney King to near death off the hook.


The Verdict The smell of the smoke The roar of thre flames The nights brnin' like hell It's like it's all gone insane It's like this whole city Is just writhin' in pain Chorus: And the nite wind It just moans Let it burn The Verdicts' been returned The howl of the wounded The silence of the lost The governments watchin' Wonderin' how much it will cost But you can't lose nothing When it's already lost Chorus: The shattering glass The flash of the gun The long nights of madness Have finally begun Just hope they don't burn it all Before this night is done Chorus
