EmBlack day in DJuly.. EmMotor City Dmadness has Gtouched the countryEmside. And Cthrough the smoke and Emcinders, you can Chear it far and Emwide. The Cdoors are quickly Embolted and the Cchildren locked Eminside...DBlack day in EmJuly.. EmBlack day in DJuly. And the Emsoul of Motor DCity is Gbared across the Emland. As the Cbook of law and Emorder is Ctaken in the Emhands of the Csons of the Emfathers who were Ccarried to this Emland. DBlack day in EmJuly.. EmBlack day in DJuly. In the Emstreets of Motor DCity is a Gdeadly, silent Emsound. And the Cbody of a Emdead youth lies Cstretched upon the Emground, upCon the filthy Empavement, no Creason can be Emfound.. DBlack day in EmJuly.. EmBlack day in DJuly. EmMotor City Dmadness has Gtouched the countryEmside. And the Cpeople rise in Emanger, and the Cstreets begin to Emfill. And there's Cgunfire from the Emrooftops and the Cblood begins to Emspill.. DBlack day in EmJuly.

Chorus

EmIn the mansion of the CGovernor, there's Emnothing that is Cknown for sure. The Emtelephone is Cringing and the Empendulum is Cswinging. And they Emwonder how it Chappened and they Emreally know the Creason. And it Emwasn't just the Ctemperature and it Emwasn't just the Cseason.. DBlack day in EmJuly.. EmBlack day in DJuly. EmMotor City's Dburning and the Gflames are running Emwild. They Creflect upon the Emwaters of the Criver and the Emlake, and Ceveryone is Emlistening and Ceveryone's Emawake.. DBlack day in EmJuly.. EmBlack day in DJuly. The Emprinting press is Dturning and the Gnews is quickly Emflashed. And you Cread your morning Empaper, and you Csip your cup of Emtea. And you Cwonder just in Empassing, is it Chim or is it Emme? DBlack day in EmJuly.

Chorus

EmIn the office of the CPresident, the Emdeed is done, the Ctroops are sent. There's Emreally not much Cchoice, you see, it Emlooks to us like Canarchy. And Emthen the tanks go Crolling in, to Empatch things up as Cbest they can. There Emis no time to Chesitate, the Emspeech is made, the Cdues can wait.. DBlack day in EmJuly.. EmBlack day in DJuly. The Emstreets of Motor DCity now are Gquiet and Emserene. But the Cshapes of gutted Embuildings strike Cterror to the Emheart. And you Csay how did it Emhappen, and you Csay how did it Emstart? Why Ccan't we all be Embrothers, why Ccan't we live in Empeace? But the Chands of the Emhave-nots keep Cfalling out of Emreach.. DBlack day in EmJuly.. EmBlack day in DJuly. EmMotor City Dmadness has Gtouched the countryEmside. And Cthrough the smoke and Emcinders, you can Chear it far and Emwide. The Cdoors are quickly Embolted and the Cchildren locked Eminside...DBlack day in EmJuly..

Outro

EmBlack day in DJuly.. DBlack day in EmJuly.. EmBlack day in DJuly..(Fade.) A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
