lyrics

pictures of your mother in high school on the wall
the war’s raging out there but the tabloids are moving on
and you were standing on the porch on a Sunday in the jeans
that make you look American and spirited and free
and the light through the star spangled banner caught your eyes
and the promise of a country, though magnificent in size
manifested itself for a moment in your smile
hands in your pockets you’ve been smoking for a while

and joy to the memory of late 2006 when we
ran out to the woods behind your house to get our kicks
and some would get their kicks off a table through their nose
and others got their kicks through the webs in their toes
we had it all – the poetry and prose of the world I suppose

and we’ve been struggling with religion I guess it comes with the age
eternal salvation with the rest stuck in a cage, we turned the page

there’s no cure for the human condition we agreed
not the prescription for Prozac I won’t acknowledge that I need
but you take me by surprise and make me feel like a man
in the middle of a country full of reasons why I can’t

and next to that everything else feels like
nothing nothing nothing nothing at all
