Someone shot a school again
So I popped off a pill or two
And crowded on a garden roof
To watch the falling stars

The evening was a blood balloon
That floated through and rhymed with doom
And we were carbon copies made
To crawl along in cars

This city’s blowing up for good
This city’s blowing up for good
My city’s blowing up again
My city’s blowing up

Bought and sold the neighborhood
Of eyes I hid in ghosted drunks
What used to be a jungle gym
Just junk and bones and arms

No one really wants the lawns
But everybody wants the laws
That come with every string attached
And coffee grounds and cops

Haggled with a dear old friend
And wound up with a chrysalis
That shot me full of charming noise
Until the sun came up

In my wake, the firemen
And all the realtors that swim
Bought and sold the seven hills
And all is well that ends
