‘Angry Man’

Bandana, crossbones, top hat
Angry man
Black boots with belts and buckles
Angry man
Your weapons confiscated

Your long hair and eyeliner
Angry man
Striking out for lands unknown
Oh, angry man

And now you’re dragged down
Now you’re dragged down into hell

Big dollar guy, big ego
Angry man
A fossil fuel expansion
Angry man
The purple mountains burning

Your absent mother, recoil
Angry man
Disapproving shallow talk
Oh, angry man

You can’t see to stand
You can’t stand to see yourself

Not knowing what you’re doing
Angry man
Angel of abandonment
Oh, angry man
Letting someone love you back

A photograph that floors you
Angry man
The room replete with spirits
Oh, angry man

And you’re breaking down
Ah, you’re breaking down again
