"Emma Blowguns Last Stand" as written by and Kurosky....
Goodness knows its been a wonderful run
The autumn lakes where the children were swans
Your mothers convictions and your fathers predictions don't seem so insane
They laugh they say your treasures are fake but don't throw it away
You've been framed with a beautiful name
You've been saved but you've lost your head
With halos and friends the trinity saves but three is a crowd
You flirt you drink you can't stop your winking at the boys at the bar
All you need is a gun and a car
A country song if you don't have a heart
My cowboys and indians and the falls and aminions where the highways are far
When all you know your shadows a ghost don't let it scare you away

    General CommentThis is my favorite Beulah song, and after downloading 25 of their songs, ive kept 23 (on a total list of 200 songs). To me, several parts of this song point to a life with little purpose, but a life still of value and the person who is being spoken of is very uncertain. If i had to summarize this song briefly (as it means to me), i'd just say it is a Sigh.

    er, he meant that he's kept all but two of their songs.. read more carefully.

    General Commentright now im trying to decipher what the song means...and i have a personal defitnition of it but my favorite line is the beginning one. "goodness knows its been a wonderful run"..its like ..to me..thinking back on ones life and just saying that together its been wonderful-the bad and the good..and its just like wow it was all worth it...OR i think one could say that someone is depressed and theyre sarcastically saying it...uhhhh course thats the first line..

    General Commenthas anyone else noticed that 'aminion' is not a word? I think these lyrics are invalid.

    someone?...

    General Commentexcuse me for attempting to find a better meaning of the song ::makes heartbroken face::

    and, it says "foreshadows a ghost" not "your shadow's a ghost"....upon further investigation you will be forced to realize it as well

    General Commentgoodness knows its been a wonderful run
    the autumn lakes where the children are swans
    your mother's convictions and your father's predictions dont seem so insane
    they laugh they say your treasures are fake but don't throw it away

    you've been framed with a beautiful name
    you've been saved but you've lost your head
    with halos and praise the trinity saves but three's a crowd
    you flirt you drink you can't stop your winking at the boys at the bar

    all you need is a gun and a car
    a country song if you don't have the heart
    about cowboys and injuns and the palsy dominions where the highways are far
    when all you know your shadows a ghost don't let it scare you away

    General Commenti love the intro (well, and the rest of the song, but to me its the intro that makes the tune stand out).
