put your dresses on
and march out to the fire
warm your bones while the prairie burns 
the wheat to wire
your cross of gold for stolen bread
your horsewhipped hands
too broke to keep the children fed

what you gonna do
your time's up

tie your ribbons tight
tied in the latest style
purr into the mike and smile
your dripping smile
your Mirrored Hall, your millionth face
the smell of plenty balmed with myrrh
the dogs that take the children's place
the killing face on building sidewalls
sirens coming, hard boots running
the finest out to run the cow call
and we can't say we saw it coming

what you gonna do
your time’s up

burn all messages
burn, the shops and stalls
burn, the baby carriages
and burn, the walls
the Vandals shout through broken gates
our feet are slipping on the frost
we run to meet where no one waits
the plated faces at our feet
through the flooded streets we're falling
every mother giving God her child
and everywhere the drums are calling

what you gonna do
your time's up
