Oh, my broken lamb
I worry when you cry
Baby's gonna fetch ya
Horses in the sky

Though dead hands ring the garden
And these are violent times
And violence brings more violence
And liars bring more lies

Though we were born defeated
Worried, tired and scared
And monsters build mean robots
Launching rockets into the air

And the wealth of our nations
Fed on angel blood
And our cities shot with moneyed schemes
Built on twigs and mud

And our schools look like prisons
And our prisons look like malls
And downtown's just a sick parade
Where no one cares at all

And our heroes all died crazy
Broken, poor or shot
Let's celebrate their tragedy
And sanctify the loss

And manifest the daydream
Like those who failed before
And glorify our small attempts
And hate ourselves no more

Blow words between this sucker's teeth
And bind these panicked hands
Lose your heart like a clumsy bell
Please be well

Please be well
Please be well
Please be well
Please be well...

And all I true love
Is the light in my sister's darling eyes...

    General CommentFor someone to figure the mind of Efrim and all of the Godspeed and Tra La La band lyrics, they would have to be him. Impossible

    General CommentI find it an amusing irony that the google ads on this lyrics page are trying to sell Jesus when you consider that Efrim and his music are very much Jewish, but I digress. This album is quite sad, very poignant. I do hope they release another soon.

    General CommentBeautiful, just beautiful. And fits with the "personal=political" theme of the album perfectly.
