lyrics

Broken babies in the backyard screaming
Oh what a year, oh what a year
Cliffhangers leave you hanging, reeling
Oh, they’re here

You want to wither alone
You get no goodbye on the phone

Bomb locked inside a closet
Who knows what you’ll do now
(oh what a year, oh what a year)
News flows, a broken faucet
If the sky splits open
There’s no wondering about…

I get the meaning of the laugh track
Yeah, I understand now

Heaven hallowed be thy
Plastic toys
Bashful beautiful boys
Plastic people
forever noise
I beg you, union
Give me a choice
Television flickered cartoons
We can wait here, many full moons
Barley fields blight into meth labs
But there’s candy cotton, and sometimes hard-hats

It’s a union, see
It’s a union, you and me
