Can you ever sing a simple song?
She intimated to me
Give me for once simple circumstances and maybe we’ll see

But it’s not the world that’s falling
You’re falling away
It’s not the world

For some blokes words fall like rain
But for me it’s not the same

Through box-kite windows you can spy
The boy with the microscope eyes
And he’s trying to dream of a soft world

And sleep becomes the only way
To forget about the function
And sleep becomes the only way
To focus on the wave

For some blokes words fall like rain
Until the falling tune sounds like the best
And then the violence starts again

From the edge I pull back
I turn and hear bulldozers
But I’m still looking at you
My American woman
And these patriot kisses
Long and deep like lies
But I’m still looking at you…
Am I American?
