Lend me your ears, but turn away because it's hideous up here. Amber waves of grain have crumbled down and Church Street has been swept clear. A lonely train ride home, when all your friends have wings (your friends have wings).

Remember when the skies were for the birds before structures were even dreamed. When everything has gone wrong.

So what's your two cents? That's all it worth because you never had a clue. Regurgitating everything you heard in the post and the daily news.

A slave to your nine to five and your three piece suit and tie(your suit and tie). The irony of the American dream, indentured till you die.

When everything has gone wrong. Just know I meant every word.

You know I meant every word. And we dance, and we dance, and we dance through the streets and tenements and we snap-snap and clap our hands in remembrance.

Why me? "The seasons come and go. Look at the ash it falls like snow. We flew to fertilize the earth so a flower can grow." He said. But still the seasons come and go. Look at the leaves that turn to snow. We flew to fertilize the earth, cause from death come rebirth. So just live!

When everything has gone wrong. Just know I meant every word. You know I meant every word. Why me?
