lyrics

Houses in the country all go boom
and implode from your room as I wait outside
Everyone we know is on the street
watching with bare feet. It's ten degrees below.
Even when it snows they can smell the fertilizer burning on our stove.
Even when it snows we can see the ashes of the homes we used to know.
Mama used to tell us of her dreams
of cows and tire swings, and summers without drought
Now there are just men without their teeth
and other ugly things. Cow shit and grey clouds.
Even when it snows they can smell the fertilizer burning on our stove.
Even when it snows we can see the ashes of the homes we used to know.
He said "one more time and I'm taking the pot off.
One more time and I'm shutting them down.
Daddy can't lose another job and
Mama can't get her face stuck in a frown.
One more time and I'm taking the over mitt,
throwing it out of the back door.
One more time, I swear little sister,
Daddy won't get high anymore."
Houses in the country all go boom
and implode from your room as I wait outside
Everyone we know is on the street
watching with bare feet. It's ten degrees below.
Even when it snows they can smell the fertilizer burning on our stove.
Even when it snows we can see the ashes of the homes we used to know
