Lightning burned the fields, blackfire choked our breath
We huddled in the kitchen, sand poured through the walls
We looked to one another, the children shut their mouths
The whirling and the turning of destruction filled our house

The blood-thirsty yearning clamored all about us
Darkness rose up from the floor like a demon
Fearful of the death that buckled through our minds
Shaken to the core, forsaken and unkind

Well, the sun came a shinin and the dust did settle down
Birds and jack-rabbits lay dead on the ground
Electricity trembled in the skies
Sparks shot forward causing us to fly

Take some breakfast but the grit was in our food
And everywhere around us, starvation broke on through
My husband stood a starin' at the plentiful disaster
God was in his eyes but death was in his heart

Dried up whiskey, chickens in the house
Stolen car stereo, cholesterol on your mouth
Stolen car stereo, snowman, all in flames
Deluxe cockroach telling me what's real

Black Sabbath playing, I wake up in my socks
Candle all a burnin', her face is on TV

Coverdale; Blackmore
