Back in the heartland
When they said you were growing up,
You were already dying.
Then you were older,
In the woods, they told you nothing was real
But they were surely lying.

Cause you were born with a heart of golden slush
And a mind to rely on,
You never thought this unexpecting rock
Would be the planet you’d die on.

To all the strangers I’ve kissed
And all the ones that I’ve missed,
My name is Jacky Bryan
And If you’re hearing this now,
It means I’m already gone
But let’s not waste time crying.

Way back when solitude was just a word you’d heard
And not a thought you’d consider,
There was a time when your home was beautiful
And now your home has gone bitter.

All of the voices
All of the human girls
All of the voices
Talking about starting a new world.
Beautiful, there are trees coming out of the ground.
Wonderful, in all of earth not a discordant sound.

Beneath the radio waves,
In a time of terror and slipping phase,
A girl is trying hard to change her.
There was a time she felt alive,
And then the world was on fire,
And she was kissing strangers.

But in the end, she knows, she doesn’t mean much
And oh, she can’t explain why she’s crying.
Out in the meadow and no one wants to talk,
And heaven knows that she’s trying.
