Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

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

It's Just You and Me



the oceans are rising, and the winds are so fierce--
listen to the poets and wait for the verse...
the anchorman's sweating
there are stars in the rain
shoot for the highway
and drown on the plain

oh, america
oh, america
it's a place 
that drowns in the sea
oh, america
oh, america
it's just you and me

the air is so heavy, the night is so deep
the army is coming to the mission of creeps
the neighbor is ranting
and shaking his fist
a child of god
the one who is pissed

oh, america
oh, america
it's a place 
that drowns in the sea
oh, america
oh, america
it's just you and me 
 
we listen for thunder, and take an axe to the trees
there's a war in our nature, she do what she please
our thoughts are all jumbled
they've been sold down the line
we've been driven to market
and told it's divine

oh, america
oh, america
it's just you and just me
