Controlled Burn

It’s a summertime song, summertime in New Mexico when all the hills are on fire because the forest service has set a controlled burn in extremely high winds. AGD

so the feds came in through The forest service
burned down half the state
refugees in the gym
they’ll just have to wait
The forests are on fire
there’s no sign of relief
peoples homes went up in smoke
there’s nothing to retrieve
they were all controlled burns
went out of control
to protect the forest
think they missed their goal
summertime in the great southwest
iour new reality
keep the feds in Washington
controlled burn is hyperbole
evacuations, refugees
and they call it forest service
when the feds come to my neighborhood
it makes me kind of nervous
