lyrics

Kerouac only yesterday
when he spoke to me
and he told me that
pretty girls make graves
I don’t quite disagree
with old Jack

Hurry back from the store today
There’s a war today
so I’m selling lemonade
to men in the street
They’ll pig out and they’ll dig until the come for me
early Wednesday of next week

Take off your dress for me
Undress for me
It’s addressed to me
It’s in my name
I’ll take that pen and I’ll sign in ink
what my last name really means

Boots off, kicked my boots off
Cut a plant in half
with a chainsaw
until I heard it bleed
Turn the water from the shower into steam
Fill the bathtub full of leaves

Emerald city west coast
Filled with new souls
I do my best
to keep my bedroom clean
I sleep with my head next to the heat
but my window lets me breathe

Shoes on tied my shoes
smash a bottle over the heads
of the ones you love
I’m going to follow old Jack out to the mud
Where I’m hoping to meet my God.

And I’m going out to the mud
Where I’m hoping to meet my God
And I’m rolling out in the mud
Where I’m hoping to meet my God
And Im crawling out through the mud
Where I’m hoping to meet my God
And I’m going out to the mud
Where I’m hoping to meet my God
