lyrics

hey jesse how's new york? i've never been
the winters' get too cold, my body all too thin. is it still a folk town? like in the sixties... bob dylan, greenwich village, carol king. now there's suzanne on the rooftops... listen to her sing.

choke the sun out of the sky, barbwire on a freeway sign,
here gas gets cheaper than water and love is thin with compromise.

i know a story about a garden long ago, then adam bought a gun,
eve ran the factory, poured acid in the stream, they had a couple of kids... one of em started a war.

were all on the same fragile brink,
learned from the billboards not to smoke and how to drink.

hail my pepsi generation kill your televisions its the real thing baby,
now you're sitting in the dark.
we were all just looking for some kind of revolution
but we never found a space to park.

i thought i saw damien jurado
on the cover of a romance novel...

tansy goes outside to play she's a garden girl
she lies backside in the dirt watching all the world,
earth side down.
where's your brother? is he with your mom?
there's your dad in his chair watching clouds..
Jesus is your friend when you stay a child

were all on the same fragile brink,
learned from the billboards not to smoke and how to drink.
