Goodbye

Goodbye

Wisecracks and hijacks
   An dcontracts to sell
   Old wine in new bottles
   Times are the same
   Diggin’ the ditch quick
   And quick to escape
   The patent is pending
   On flood tides and bones
   Goodbye
   To all that
   Goodbye
   To all that
  
   Brittle and hollow
   And sharp as the hills
   It hasn’t rained on us
   In 25 years
   Home fires burning
   The branches of trees
   No train well
   No train has ever stopped here
  
   Goodbye
   To all that
   Goodbye
   To all that
  
   Wake it up
   Wake it up
   Wake it up
   Wake it up
   Wake it up
  
   Short cut to nowhere
   Long haul to desperate
   Roots in the cellar
   And bombs in the pipes.
   Don’t call me river
   I’d rather be nameless
   River don’t choose
   What she carries away
  
   Goodbye
   To all that
   Goodbye
   To all that
  
   Wake it up
   Wake it up
   Wake it up
   Wake it up
   Wake it up
