lyrics

this river water's filthy
red & white & black
an american bloodstream that divides this land in half
it's all split forever
a thousand different paths
stranded and forgotten in the middle of a map

the coattails of the future
are all ragged and frayed
the present creaks the floorboards and it's keeping my awake
you may say I'm only dreaming
every single day
sleeping by the river of this sad northern state

and now your children sleep on riverbeds
in the attic of the grey midwest
why the hell would you come here?
the nightingales all left

tell my pa I quit
I'm heading west

and now your children sleep on riverbeds
in the attic of the grey midwest
why the hell would you come here?
the nightingales all left

tell my pa I quit
I'm heading west
