Nature has some new plague
To run in our streets
History some new wrinkle
We are doomed to repeat

Fugitives at the bedroom door
Lovers pause to find an open store
Rain is burning on the forest floor
And the red tide kisses the shore

This is not a false alarm
This is not a test

Stay out of the sun
It only burns my skin
Sky full of poison
And the atmosphere's too thin

Bless the sun, rain no more
River running like an open sore
Black wind falling to the ocean floor
And the red tide washes ashore

This is not a false alarm
This is not a test

Nowhere we can fly away
Nowhere we can rest
The party is disrupted by
An uninvited guest

Deadline approaches
For the weary land
It used to be something
But we let it run down in our hands

Too late for debate, too bad to ignore
Quiet rebellion leads to open war
Bring a sea change to the factory floor
As the red tide covers the shore

Now is the time to turn the tide
Now is the time to fight
Let us not go gently
To the endless winter night

Now is the time to make the time
Hope is still in sight
Let us not go gently
To the endless winter night
Let us not go gently
To the endless winter night

This is not a false alarm
This is not a test

Nowhere we can fly away
Nowhere we can rest
Let us not go gently
To the endless winter night

Let us not go gently
To the endless winter night
Let us not go gently
To the endless winter night

And the red tide kisses the shore
And the red tide kisses the shore
And the red tide kisses the shore
...
