Day Of The Locusts Lyrics

Oh, the benches were stained with tears and perspiration,
The birdies were flying from tree to tree.
There was little to say, there was no conversation
As I stepped to the stage to pick up my degree.
And the locusts sang off in the distance,
Yeah, the locusts sang such a sweet melody.
Oh, the locusts sang off in the distance,
Yeah, the locusts sang and they were singin' for me.

I glanced into the chamber where the judges were talking,
Darkness was everywhere, it smelled like a tomb.
I was ready to leave, I was already walkin',
But the next time I looked there was light in the room.
And the locusts sang, yeah, it give me a chill,
Oh, the locusts sang such a sweet melody.
Oh, the locusts sang that high whining trill,
Yeah, the locusts sang and they were singin' for me.

Outside of the gates the trucks were unloadin',
The weather was hot, a-nearly 90 degrees.
The man standin' next to me, his head was exploding,
Whoa, I was prayin' the pieces wouldn't fall on me.
Yeah, and the locusts sang off in the distance,
Yeah, the locusts sang such a sweet melody.
Oh, the locusts sang off in the distance,
Now, the locusts sang and they were singin' for me.

I put down my robe, I picked up my diploma,
Took hold of my sweetheart and away we did drive,
Straight for the hills, the black hills of Dakota,
Sure was glad to get out of there alive.
And the locusts sang, whoa, it give me a chill,
Yeah, the locusts sang such a sweet melody.
And the locusts sang with that high whinin' trill,
Yeah, the locusts sang and they was singin' for me,
Singin' for me, whoa, singin' for me.
