Track Name: Rotten Deal
We head north
Through the cities of industry
Their names are escaping me now
They’re burned out
All the golden age ghosts
March up the coast to the beat
All the torn out hearts of the children
Now they all run away to New England
They head north til the grass grows green again

La la la la la la la la
I’ve been driving around this goddamn town
And I can’t find a reason to stay
La la la la la la la la
Used to be felt like home to me
But all the people have gone away

The rain stopped
After 10 straight days
The fog burned away and we sawwww
What was left of this place, God laughed in our face
On his way to somewhere else
So amused by all my blindness
All my random acts of kindness
Ain’t worth a dime, falling straight to hell
Through the opposite end of your wishing well

All the people have gone away
Track Name: Family and Country
Grew up in a sleepy town
Imagine hands to hold us down
If we’d been grown we’d understand
The familiar touch of loving hands
Instead, gentle as a heart attack
We move away to the city and never look back
Instead, gentle as a heart attack
We move away to the city and never look back

I’ve traveled so far to see all this nothing

Drive this state from end to end
I’ve got no idea just where I’ve been
The country out here heaves with pain
Oh, the Capitol don’t know their name
It should have been a call for all to climb the walls
Tear the ceiling down and watch it fall
Instead they’re poisoned by their wishing wells
And they’re waking up to ringing bells

I’ve traveled so far to see all this nothing
