Found a mockingbird and I drowned it
It never said a word to anybody but now
So I wear this cross and chain cause my girl found it
Said it'd drive my pain all the way clean out of town
We looked out on the broken world and like Old Edmund Ruffin declared we'd started something

Can the bell and tower hold your passion?
Toll it out in hours straight to the end of your days?

We lit the fuse and walked away
Then like Old Edmund Ruffin, said "we started something"

Ah the great release, thought I'd found it
But there can be no peace
'Til every idol comes down
