about

Song by Natalie Merchant

lyrics

Where in hell can you go, far from the things that you know
Far from the sprawl of concrete that keeps crawling its way
A thousand miles a day

Take one last look behind, commit this to memory and mind
Don't miss this wasteland, this terrible place
When you leave, keep your heart off your sleeve

Motherland, cradle me, close my eyes, lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe, lie with me, stay beside me don't go

My five and dime queen, tell me what have you seen
The lust and the avarice, the bottomless, cavernous greed
Is that what you see?

It's your happiness I want most of all
And for that I’ll do anything at all
If you want the best of life and the most from love
If there's anything that I can do at all

Now come on shot gun bride, what makes me envy your life
The faceless, the nameless, the innocent and blameless and free
What's it like to be?
