Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

American Blues



i got a busted wall for my movie queen
she is up against it, so obscene
she's a drag, a drag she is
coming down in the burning rain
i've got to get back to america
i've got to get a better haircut
i'm in a rut
a terrible rut
i just tut-tut-tut
i stagger down the hall
breaking into fall
i got a busted wall
i climb up it in a busted dream
gonna build me a mars, drink in government bars
but i hit my head and fell in bed
wake me up if you think i'm dead
a busted wall
a busted wall
that is all
that is all

i'm taking fluids from the jumping man
i'm making cocktails for a one night stand
i drink it up and hit my head
fall into bed
wake me up if you think i'm dead
if you think i'm dead

please, give me money for a news flash
dig into your pockets for some raw cash
lay it on me, help me please
i wanna get stoned and smoke cigarettes
get bent in two, puke on my shoes
here's the latest news:
everybody's gone, everybody's in the rapture
and i'm alone
in the great unknown
like a crazy crow at the end of the show
i just hang around for loose change
i just hang around on the free range
can't kick me out
i scream and shout
i'm all that's left of the whole shebang
get bent in two, puke on my shoes
here's the latest news:
i got american blues
american blues

i'm in a rut
a terrible rut
i just tut-tut-tut
i stagger down the hall
breaking into fall
i got a busted wall
i climb up it in a busted dream
gonna build me mars, drink in government bars
but i hit my head and fell in bed
wake me up if you think i'm dead
a busted wall
a busted wall
that is all
that is all

oh, wait for the shining lights
reach deep inside of the highest heights
flip and flop, twitch and jerk
god's got a taser and it hurts to work
i have to go
i have to leave
everything is burning me
i'm onto the parapet
this is the only castle i'll ever get
surrounded now
here they come
let them in
let the games begin
drinking my gin i get agitated
juniper berries are so wasted

i'm taking fluids from the jumping man
i'm making cocktails for a one night stand
i drink it up and hit my head
fall into bed
wake me up if you think i'm dead
if you think i'm dead

and i'm alone
in the great unknown
like a crazy crow at the end of the show
i just hang around for loose change
i just hang around on the free range
can't kick me out
i scream and shout
i'm all that's left of the whole shebang
get bent in two, puke on my shoes
here's the latest news:
i got american blues
i got american blues
i got american blues
i got american blues
