American Moon

from by Martin Van Ruin

lyrics

our kids will disappear down the flight of stairs
for all that happened here, we were unprepared
water's rising, revolution came
and we don't know now, what here's left to save.

'cause something rose and something fell
like all good plans, it went to hell.

we took our fathers' names, we cut our hair
and when our papers came, we said our prayers
but we're still sleeping 'neath the american moon
and all are coming days are coming soon.

'cause something rose and something fell
like all good plans, it went to hell.
i saw you at the riverside
mouth closed shut as your lips turned to white.

we were bleeding
dogs were barking
roads were leading us home.

and we're still sleeping 'neath the american moon
