about

Miles Griffith enters the story as the voice of the storm, a violent and terrifying weather assault on our protagonist garbage. He also sings as the voice of the garbage, imploring “what did we do?” But the violent storm ensues, a brutal assault, and innocence is capsized. Alan Ferber is featured on the trombone.

lyrics

Run, run for cover
Run for cover now - I’m coming down
Run – and forget all your worldly dreams
If I see you, you are going to die.

There’s no mercy.

Hide, hide your children
Hide, I’m coming down - they won’t be spared
Hide and stay close to the ones you love
If I see them they are going to die.

You are going to die.

Clouds staring down they have it out for us
What did we do?
Sky so dark and menacing
Clouds please forgive us if you’re angry
We meant no offense we’re innocent
Please.
