Big dumb river
we all live with you now
big dumb part of me
trapped in the big dumb house

I watch from the roof
as you climb the shores
big dumb worry drowning out
the silence and the applause

but i'm sitting in the sunlight
and I'm waiting for the punchline and
I'm figuring out the lies

big dumb president
big dumb photo op
big dumb walking stick
pass through the big dumb crowd

how it ends up on the screen
i can't seem to say
plans and signs and falling stars
the approaching night complains

but i'm sitting in the sunlight
and I'm waiting for the punchline and
I'm figuring out the lies

big dumb river eats the big dumb lawn
big dumb feet dangling over
the panic it slides towards
we come primed we come ignored
we approach the floor
big dumb sunset bringing on
the black night and the dawn
but i'm sitting in the sunlight
and I'm waiting for the punchline and
I'm figuring out the lies
