Dead Flag Blues


This week’s theme song for reference

Dsc 2470

The car is on fire, and there’s no driver at the wheel

And the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides

And a dark wind blows

Dsc 2540

The government is corrupt

And we’re on so many drugs

With the radio on and the curtains drawn

Dsc 2544

We’re trapped in the belly of this horrible machine

And the machine is bleeding to death

Dsc 2568

The sun has fallen down

And the billboards are all leering

And the flags are all dead at the top of their poles

Dsc 2603

It went like this:

The buildings tumbled in on themselves

Mothers clutching babies

Picked through the rubble

And pulled out their hair

Dsc 2617

The skyline was beautiful on fire

All twisted metal stretching upwards

Everything washed in a thin orange haze

Dsc 2645

I said, “Kiss me, you’re beautiful -

These are truly the last days“

You grabbed my hand

And we fell into it

Like a daydream

Or a fever

Dsc 2683

We woke up one morning and fell a little further down

For sure it’s the valley of death

Dsc 2819

I open up my wallet

And it’s full of blood
