Tie a red silk scarf around my mouth

This protest needs the hearing and the sight

Fantastic place to be, a place to live in

Forgive them, they are young and rich and white

Cash rules everything around me

The slowest animals have up and gone

An accident sits down with you for breakfast

Things are better now we have the bomb

A stranger pulls the white sheet from your body

Crutches tap the rhythm of a song

An accident sits down with you for breakfast

Things are better now we have the bomb

Lovely girls slip softly into ruin

Boys of summer scattered all around

We thought we were natural survivors

Forgive me if I go out with a bang
