Rock: Red Rider – Lunatic Fringe

This song was being recorded on December 8th 1980 when Tom Cochrane heard John Lennon was murdered. Though this song isn’t about Lennon’s murder, Cochrane said the feel of the song grew darker upon hearing that bad news. – Tio Pancho

Lunatic fringe
I know you’re out there
You’re in hiding
And you hold your meetings

I can hear you coming
We know what you’re after
We’re wise to you this time
We won’t let you kill the laughter

Lunatic fringe
In the twilight’s last gleaming
This is open season
But you won’t get too far

‘Cause you gotta blame someone
For your own confusion
But I’m on guard this time
Against your final solution

We can hear you coming
No you’re not going to win this time
We can hear the footsteps
Out along the walkway

Lunatic fringe
We all know you’re out there
Can you feel the resistance?
Can you feel the thunder?
