LYRICS

Rain pours down, dust blows up,
Weatherman saying that we're sitting ducks -
And tell me, how long does it take to investigate?
'Fore the ocean's in the kitchen and the desert's at the garden gate.

Turn up the radio, radio's dead
Never heard another word of what the weatherman said -
And tell me, how long does it take to investigate?
'Fore the ocean's in the kitchen and the desert's at the garden gate.

Chorus: Suitcase lying in a pile of debris, Hundred dollar bills packed tight as can be - Letter to a senator, "Senator please, Accept this token from the industry..."

There goes the Capitol floating away,
Congressman swearing it's a mighty fine day - Tell me...
how long does it take to investigate?
'Fore the ocean's in the kitchen and the desert's at the garden gate.

Climb out the window, squat on my roof,
There's a hole in the universe, somebody goofed - Tell me...
how long does it take to investigate?
'Fore the ocean's in the kitchen and the desert's at the garden gate.

Climb up the mountain, take a look at the land,
You know half the states are flooded and the other half sand - Tell me...
how long does it take to investigate?
'Fore the ocean's in the kitchen and the desert's at the garden gate.

Chorus: Suitcase...

Talk to the scientists, scientists say:
"All the indicators point to politics pays" - Tell me...
how long does it take to investigate?
'Fore the ocean's in the kitchen and the desert's at the garden gate.

Talk to the future and the future talks back:
"Guess there's nothing much left to leave the children you had" - Tell me...
how long does it take to investigate?
'Fore the ocean's in the kitchen and the desert's at the garden gate.
