    "Sunken Waltz" Lyrics


    Washed my face in the rivers of Empire
    Laid my bed from a cardboard crate
    Down in a sea of quartz

    No news, no new regrets
    Tossed a Susan B. over my shoulder
    Prayed it would rain and rain
    Submerge the whole western states

    Call it a last fair deal
    With an American seal
    In corporate handshake

    Take the story of carpenter Mike
    Who dropped his tools and his keys and left
    And headed out as far as he could
    Past the city and gated neighbourhoods

    He slept 'neath the stars
    Wrote down what he dreamt
    And he built a machine
    For a-no one to see

    Then took flight, first light
    Of the new morning
