"Parade" as written by Leslie Pridgen, Norman Jesse Whitfield, Hanif Muhammad, Pedro Luis Zayas, Christopher Ries and Chad Wesley Hamilton....
Problems in a little town, disrupting of the rain
Diesel trains and firemen collecting in the shade
The rain's still a long way off, the snakes have got it made

But everyone's got off today
Everyone's got off today

One by one the windows shutting down with frowns
The wind comes up and funny papers rattle through the town
The rain is coming closer, the trees are bending town

But everyone's got off today
Everyone's got off today

Underneath the glass on the dresser drawer
Ticket stubs and photographs, never any more
And in the puddles on the lawns a tiny jockey stands

But everyone's got off today
Everyone's got off today
Everyone's got off today

    General Commentthis song was written LONG before 9/11, but i almost feel like this song haunts me in that way. almost like it was written about that event... even though it couldn't have been.
