The Smoke Is Rolling In
Pigfarmer Jr

The smoke is rolling in and we're all gonna die
All gonna die
All gonna die
The smoke is rolling in and we're all gonna die
All gonna die
All gonna die

David went jogging almost every single day
If you want to talk to him that seems to be the way
To do it without risking all their lives why didn't they try?

The ATF decided they would stop him in his tracks
They'd let him string the longest fuse
Then light it with a match
And if you listen closely you can hear all the voices
As they start to scream and cry

The smoke is rolling in and we're all gonna die
All gonna die
All gonna die
The smoke is rolling in and we're all gonna die
All gonna die
All gonna die

No-one ever thinks about it thanks to Tim McVeigh
Thanks to him the ATF has gotten clean away
Truth be told I don't think we'll ever question any of their lies

The smoke is rolling in and we're all gonna die
All gonna die
All gonna die
The smoke is rolling in and we're all gonna die
All gonna die
All gonna die

The Smoke Is Rolling In
by Balls To Monte

A thick cloud of smoke rolled into the region
On Saturday, just after dark
The too many reasons I left you are legion
But the fire you lit still burns in my heart.
Two long years since I felt the smolder
Of your dark eyes burning into mine
Ain’t no wiser, but a heck a lot older
Yet embers ignite a satisfaction sublime.

And the smoke is rolling in
The smoke is rolling
We can’t let them win
No, we can’t let them win
No, we can’t let them win
Win again

Our love is like a fine marble sculpture
Your face etched into my brain
Smoke clouds threaten my uncertain future
I just sit back, enjoying the pain.
Cold front pushes the smoke clouds east,
Shifting winds promising a new life lease
I awake to the morning’s patchy frost
And think again about the love I lost.

[chorus] [guitar solo]
"...and it ain’t a fit night out for man or beast!”

It must be forty in the shade
Someone call out the brigade
Cos you’re on fire, you’re on fire
Got no answer to this heat
You even got the AC beat
Yeah you’re on fire, you’re on fire

You’re an inferno
You’re so hot
How can I handle
What you got?

Feel the sweat pour off my skin
As the smoke is rolling in
You’re on fire, yeah you’re on fire
I can take off all my clothes
You can douse me with a hose
But you’re on fire, you’re on fire

You’re like a fever
You’re burning up
You get any hotter
You’ll self-combust

Like a moth drawn to the flame
I can’t tear myself away
You’re on fire, yeah you’re on fire
Your soaring fahrenheit
Is gonna set this place alight
Cos you’re on fire, you’re on fire

When the mercury is on the rise
How am I meant acclimatise?

It's so funny how memory works,
what you remember what you never forget
The carousel never stops turning
It's such a good day for a drive
Get away, away from the flames
Before it explodes
You know someone will see all the smoke
The driver's only seventeen years old
He's wandering the road, head took a heavy blow
It was like her first kiss, now she's eviscerated
Hew bowels held inside her with the cellophane
The other's stuck in the wreckage her hip is dislocated
Got pop it back, nothing to kill the pain
Charlie's making so sense, it's like he's medicated
You need to check him out for bleeding on the brain
Phone rings, Mack trunk, you're obliterated
Bleeding on the brain, it'll never be the same

You're not dead, you have a pulse
Your heart is beating, look at me
It's a wonderful day to save a life
so you
STAY NOT DEAD

Blunt force trauma
To the head, chest, and abdomen
Persistent hypotension despite two liters of saline
Consciousness lost at the scene
Your monologue is trapped inside
You'd tell them to do a CT but
you can't speak
Should've checked the head, should've had it diagnosed
Lying brain dead, pupils blown, comatose
Disembodied voice saying "I told you so"
Page the only neurosurgeon but he's gotta tip the host
Should have listened to your intern , no cooperation
"Who are you, girl" "he's my friend, no relation"
Lying prone on a gurney losing coloration
Guess you contradicted your uplifting affirmation

You're not dead, you have a pulse
Your heart is beating, look at me
It's a wonderful day to save a life
so you
STAY NOT DEAD

The Smoke Is Rolling In
by Lichen Throat

In the station wagon, it’s a ten-minute ride;
We park behind a van with a mural on the side.
At John’s Pizza Parlor, in Ridgecrest, California.
It’s Friday night, and the place is packed.
A single table left, way in the back.
Past the metal chairs, with padded seats,
Past the kitchen door, I feel the heat.

The smoke is rolling in the pizza oven,
Breadsticks are coming out by the dozen.
The pizzas cook: small, medium, and large.
They’ll give you extra cheese for an extra charge.

People are laughing at each other’s jokes.
We order a pitcher of cherry Coke,
It might take a while, the waitress tries to warn you.
Records in the jukebox whirl;
Someone’s singing about Jessie’s girl.
Video games are making noise;
They got Space Invaders and they got Asteroids.

The smoke is rolling, as cigarettes are lit;
This is the only part I wish I could forget.
When my quarters are gone and aliens have landed,
The pizza comes out, just like I planned it.

She puts the platter atop a candle.
Be careful—it’s too hot to handle.
Smoke in my eye, so I rub my cornea.
Slices all around, and I take a bite.
Want some red pepper? Yeah, I think I might.
Chewy crust with melted cheese.
Can I have another slice of pepperoni, please?

The Smoke Is Rolling In - Brown Word and the Big Whine

Oh my heart is on fire
My love is burning down
This burning inferno
My fire tornado

Oh the smoke is rolling in
It's getting in my eyes
The smoke is rolling in
It's clouding up my mind
Well I can't sleep at night
Thinking about you now
The flames are leaping high
Like there's no tomorrow

Oh I'm wilting from the heat
My body is a landmine
This flaming innuendo
It's a churning inferno

Oh the smoke is rolling in
It's getting in my eyes
The smoke is rolling in
It's clouding up my mind
Well I can't sleep at night
Thinking about you now
The flames are leaping high
Like there's no tomorrow

When you love someone
You would fight unto the very death
When you love someone
You'd tear the heart right from your chest
When you love someone
You'd leap straight in the eye of doom
When you love someone
Disintegrate with sheer abandon

The smoke is rolling in
Raging like there's no tomorrow
The flames are leaping high
Raging like there's no tomorrow
The smoke is rolling in
There's explosions in sky now
The flames are climbing high
Disintegrate with sheer abandon

The Smoke is Rolling in
Robyn Mackenzie

I climbed a mountain in my dreams last night
I touched the moon and I danced in the starlight
Far away from the hum of machines
I watched the black clouds rise from the chimney

Then I awoke with a startling crash
Can’t seem to pick myself up from the ashes
Filled with a sorrow I could never explain
The water’s rising but it never seems to rain

Ooh, I heard you say
Don’t leave me broken-hearted
Ooh, lost in the flames
Can’t finish what I started
Memories of mirrors in my mind along the way
Ooh, it’s just a game
But now the smoke is rolling in

I can feel it burning in my eyes
My heart is heavy and my head is filled with lies
Cause this is never who I said I would be
You took my hand but you never set me free

Ooh, I heard you say
Don’t leave me broken-hearted
Ooh, lost in the flames
Can’t finish what I started
Memories of mirrors in my mind along the way
Ooh, it’s just a game
But now the smoke is rolling in
Rolling in

Ooh, I heard you say
Don’t leave me broken-hearted
Ooh, lost in the flames
Can’t finish what I started
Memories of mirrors in my mind along the way
Ooh, it’s just a game
But now the smoke is rolling in
Rolling in

Rackwagon

the mirrors are in place
and the smoke is rolling in
and you're not sure if any of this is real

he tells you that he's ill
but you don't know who to trust
yeah - that's just the way they like it

don't believe what the papers tell you
don't believe what the socials say
you're being gaslighted, USA

they pull the mailbox out
and they cloud the vote with doubt
and yeah - they've got you where they want you

don't believe what the papers tell you
don't believe what the socials say
you're being gaslighted, USA

The Smoke Is Rolling In

It was just supposed to be a weekend getaway
But it certainly was not I’m mad to say
Just a cabin in the woods with a bunch of frat brothers
What could go wrong I had a hunch among others
All the tongue mothers yelled loudly in my ear
I proudly could hear I found the new fear
Time to be assaulted guess who will be faulted
I asked for every minute supernatural involvement
I need to be proving that I’m innocence
I need to be losing indiscriminance
Intimidence it’s a scary place to be
I knew about the werewolf when I was barely even three
I could never see what blackouts ever meant
I just knew the next day we could pay the rent
We just complain to vent about being a disgrace
Can’t sleep in my bed without tea bags in my face

The smoke is coming in from the hills
That’s why we got the chills
I don’t want to be left alone tonight
Yeah I am scared too
You left me alone with a bunch of savage dudes
And frankly it was kind of rude
I hold resentment towards your lack of fair rules
I got teabagged by a pack of werewolves

All they want to do is play beer pong and get higher
This is going to be a weird long all nighter
I think I am right for believing in myself
Tired of bad hands I keep getting dealt
I need better cards far from carpal tunnel
When the moon got full my frat brothers huddled
I am not a baby not a goat to be sacrificed
I’m about to be hazed to pay the lasting price
A bunch of hairy dudes holding me down it’s scary y’all
I’m about to be buried crowned with the hairy balls
I can not unsee that I stare through the crack
I did not agree to be teabagged by a wolf pack
I dare to prod my brother with a silver buttplug
A silver bullet vibrates inside his gut nug
I bit the bullet even though it was silver
My frats were teen wolves I was the killer

The smoke is coming in from the hills
That’s why we got the chills
I don’t want to be left alone tonight
Yeah I am scared too
You left me alone with a bunch of savage dudes
And frankly it was kind of rude
I hold resentment towards your lack of fair rules
I got teabagged by a pack of werewolves
Sober GF: I can't explain why but I hated it

Toby Rok: Sweeeney Toad...I can’t explain why, but I like it...

The Smoke is Rolling In
JP Nickolas

Mornings were her favorite
When light would grace his cheeks
Counting all her lucky stars
For the time, the days, the weeks

Lately tender’s tinder
And hope looks so bleak
Smoke is sure to follow
Because it’s flames he seeks

Keep Away
The sparks oh they
Set him off

They stay, they light
His words ignite
The settled dust

But stand, she will
To match his skill
Unwavering

She knows the flames have come again
The sky is gray and dim
She knows the flames have come again
The smoke is rolling in

She knows the flames have come again
Looking right at him
She knows the flames have come again
The smoke is rolling in

Honeyed words tinged bittersweet
To keep the smoke at bay
Cannot quell the bitter heat
The smoke is here to stay

Honeyed words tinged bittersweet
Cannot quell the bitter heat

Burn her lungs and char her words
Til ashes stain her heart
Bile gets vile rewards
Flammable she starts
To burn

Sleep, must mend
What cannot end
Their bond stretched thin

Ruminate
Until it’s late
Ashes plague her dreams

Awake, to soot
Where love was put
Now she must ignite

She knows the flames have come again
She can feel them in her skin
She knows the flames have come again
The smoke is rolling in

She knows the flames have come again
Looking right at him
She knows the flames have come again
The smoke is rolling in

Will she see the sun again?
Or will the smoke keep rolling in?

Will she see the sun again?
Or will the smoke keep rolling in?

The Smoke is Rolling In - Night Sky

You strut up tight so complacent
Sizzling with anticipation
got your red hot victory dress
You know everybody so impressed
Dazzled by your own gleaming shine
Fuck all those you have left behind

It’s a blue fire
long overdue
It’s a blue fire
and it’s coming for you

The smoke, the smoke is rolling in
you’re a cocky boxer grinning
We’ll all dance when you get your due
Why did no one ever tell you
We get the real celebration
When the high and haughty burn

It’s a blue fire
long overdue
It’s a blue fire
and it’s coming for you

You’d only have to look behind
to see your winning dream flatlined
with your gall and bloated head
You ain’t feeling that fire yet
turn away from your reflection
The smoke, the smoke is rolling in
The smoke is rolling in

It’s a blue fire
long overdue
It’s a blue fire
and it’s coming for you
Night Sky is Sally on lyrics, Steve on drums, and Matt on the other stuff

The Smoke Is Rolling In - Paco del Stinko

There is smoke, before fire
Heed the bell, hear the town crier

Corner to corner my eyes are filled
The smoke comes rolling in


The sun at night, so far away
All you have now, is yesterday

Corner to corner my eyes are filled
The smoke comes rolling in


Yeah yeah yeah
Everything turns to white
Searing nothingness the end of the night
Hey now, nothing always wins
Hey now, nothing always wins

The capsule flies, Adam and Eve
The only two, no one else could leave

Corner to corner my eyes are filled
The smoke comes rolling in
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

The Smoke Is Rolling In - Hot Pink Halo

I go all in
Play my cards
Toe the line in this
Scene that surrounds me
Of chaos frozen
In time

My my

I hear the bough break and
The cradle fall as the
Smoke rolls in and
Engulfs us all
I watch as all the king’s horses
And all the king’s men
Walk down Collins St
At 5pm
And I hear the bough break when
The cradle falls
As the fire rages on and
Burns us all
We draw our weapons and we
Cry our tears
We’ll stand before The Battle
When the smoke clears

I go all out
Roll the dice
Jump the rope in this
Still life that moves through
A chaos frozen
By hope

My my

I hear the bough break and
The cradle fall as the
Smoke rolls in and
Engulfs us all
I watch as all the king’s horses
And all the king’s men
Walk down Collins St
At 5pm
And I hear the bough break when
The cradle falls
As the fire rages on and
Burns us all
We draw our weapons and we
Cry our tears
We’ll stand before The Battle
When the smoke clears

And when they were up they were up
And when they were down they were down
And when they were only half way up
They were neither up nor down
And when we were up we were up
And when we were down we were down
And when we were only half way up
We were neither up nor down

I hear the bough break and
The cradle fall as the
Smoke rolls in and
Engulfs us all
I watch as all the king’s horses
And all the king’s men
Walk down Collins St
At 5pm
And I hear the bough break when
Your baby falls
And the fire rages on and
Burns us all
We draw our weapons and we
Dry our tears
We’ll stand before The Battle
When the smoke clears
Devil’s got me Lindt! Devil’s got me Lindt!

The Smoke Is Rolling In - Future Boy
===============================

Up on the roof
I look out at the world
With my head in the clouds

No mountain today
The sun's behind haze
And I can't see the Sound

I heard that the hills are on fire
And we might not live to see tomorrow
Cuz the smoke is rolling in

And when the smoke comes rolling in
Oh when the smoke comes rolling in
Oh how I want to hear the thunder
When the smoke comes rolling

Instinct is telling me
Cover my face
And get lost in the crowd

The snap, crackle, pop
Drives me back to the roof
Where I still hear the sounds

It looks like the precinct's on fire
And they might not live to see tomorrow
Cuz the smoke is rolling in

And when the smoke comes rolling in
Oh when the smoke comes rolling in
Oh how I want to hear the thunder
When the smoke comes rolling

Inside my house
I retreat from the world
With a head full of doubt

No smiling today
My mind's in a haze
I am feeling unsound

My body feels like it's on fire
And I might not live to see tomorrow
Cuz the smoke is rolling in

And when the smoke comes rolling in
Oh when the smoke comes rolling in
Oh how I want to hear the thunder
When the smoke comes rolling in
