I've been to your town
Ain't nobody around
I've been to your city
Ain't no city like Cinicinnati

The first time I've been there
In the rollin' heat
I saw black love spent
And angel wings
I saw white dust choke
And kill and end the violence

And I know I'm running the American dream
Red, White, and Blue blood
Run at the seams
Bittersweet liberty
Don't mean shit to me

Hey, I've been to your town
Ain't nobody around
Hey baby, I've been
To your city
Ain't no city like Cincinnati

Hey, I run along to Mexico
Some water is cold up the coast
You know I bleed the sun
The resurrection

I run along to Ohio
Drive past the grave
Of an old romance
Never felt more alive than
Suicide Cincinnati

And I've been to your town
Ain't nobody around
Hey baby, I've been
To your city
Ain't no city like Cincinnati

Here we are...
Here we are...
Here were are...
In utopia

    General Commenti dont think this is a cover song..i did at first but then i looked it up and nothing came up but the distillers...soo..but whoever its by its just about a person who had overfilling expectations for cincinnati(probley from what they'd heard... and and when she gets there its not near as great as she though...and also metaphors for what she saw when just driving down the road...i love this song :]
