lyrics

We were riding bicycles
Down along the old canals
Hollerin’ around this town
Trying to get over ourselves
We were dancing young hypocrites
Idiots in love with our mouths
Leavin’ the city to rot
Ringing our bicycle bells

I took her for an Idywild girl
Home grown in the pines
She took me around the world
In a boxcar on a wire
She was walking down the steps
While I was walking up from the sea
Left the ports burning in the south of France
I wonder if she mentions me

She was born on Easter island
Swam to shore when she was twelve
Caught a train north to Guatemala
Working cleaning prison cells
Let the dust cover all of us
Take our ashes turn them into shells
We’ll take the busses down to Mexico
Keep trying to get over ourselves

I took her for an Idywild girl
Home grown in the pines
She took me around the world
In a boxcar on a wire
She was walking down the steps
While I was walking up from the sea
Left the ports burning in the south of France
I wonder if she mentions me

Death has climbed the windowpanes
A cannonball came through the door
I ran out screaming its time to be leaving
But she wont be leaving the floor
Lord, she wont be leaving the floor
