Georgia take me to the sea where they drown the babies that nobody can feed,
And in that sick ocean Georgia we'll be born again Georgia, we'll swim so far in that ocean crammed with shopping carts,
Georgia's got a tumor in her throat, she grows wild strawberries on the roof of her overpriced apartment in soho and I close my eyes but the sleep the sleep doesn't come to me unless I'm shitfaced drunk. I dream of traffic.
Georgia, Georgia you know the wedding is tomorrow, she's a well off girl with rich parents who made a fortune off of real estate.
It smells like spring is yellow and headphones wail like widows on designer pillows of Egyptian linen.
We'll I've been here before, where the waterfalls decompose, and symphonies go blind in the desert,
So grab a microphone put the tape in press record, Georgia can you hear my heart explode.
Georgia take me to the sea, redesigned by the billion dollar company. Clean as a brainwashed baby, sugar sweet user friendly, version 1.2, supernatural blue.
Georgia's collecting broken glass and tires, she's building an airplane from the lonely hearts of liars. Split knuckles black bloody sheets and cigarettes from con-mens teeth, she'll fly around the world on all that regret.
Georgia I hope the treatment isn't too rough, I hope your eyes don't go into the fog of the world.
Not everything happens for a reason, I know that it sounds appealing when you loose something that's not replaceable.
We'll I've been here before, where the waterfalls decompose, and symphonies go blind in the desert,
So grab a microphone put the tape in press record, Georgia can you hear my heart explode?

    General Comment"I wrote the chords for that song in 2006. It was a song I'd had in my back pocket for a really long time. I didn't want to use it as a Blood Brothers song because I thought it would be compromised.
    Lyrically, it was inspired by a lot of things. Part of it was inspired by this girl who came to a Blood Brothers show who had cancer. She'd skipped a chemotherapy session to come to our show, and she was really far-gone. It was really powerful to see the joy that it brought her to see us and thinking about the fact that she would probably not live long enough to see us again. I never really write about one subject, but there are a few lines in there about that." -Johnny Whitney
