    Lyrics

    My clothes and my windshield wipers and a locket of my hair
    Everything is for sale
    My rifle and my boots and my instant coffee maker
    That poem 'bout the moon over Switzerland
    My flowers and my walkie-talkie
    All the liquid in my body
    I'll set a price and post it to your e-mail
    But my love, my love is not for sale

    I could sell my pictures on the streets of Barcelona
    Women 30 minutes at a time
    New York City subway, 3 songs for a dollar
    Or maybe just a chorus for a dime
    The newspaper on the street
    The sky reflecting at my feet
    It's all been bottled, packaged, drawn to scale
    But my love, my love is not for sale

    Take just a minute of your day
    Tell me one thing that you would live for
    Dying, dying's easy, getting easier all the time
    Tell me one thing not to throw it all away for

    I'll sell you the morning and I'll sell you the night
    I'll sell you the river and move along
    I'll sell you the balconies, I'll sell you the sidewalks
    And all the shuttered windows of Bresson
    I'll sell you the moon, I'll sell you the stars
    And the forests with the lonesome wolfhound's wail

    But my love, my love
    My love is not for sale

    Suicide bomb

    This is the last song I will ever write
    I'll plug my ears and cover up my eyes to mask my sight
    I'm killing off my instincts after 2,000 songs
    I'm getting with the program, now I'm gonna play along

    This is my songwriting suicide bomb
    This is my songwriting suicide bomb

    I can't compete with blowing up yourself on a bus
    Killing one of you and 19 of us
    Flying hi-jacked airplanes so thousands will die
    But I can kill too and blacken out the sky

    This is my songwriting suicide bomb
    This is my songwriting suicide bomb

    This is the last song I will ever write
    The last blank page my pen will ever blight
    Abandoning the fight, I'm pulling off the gloves
    No longer be a soldier for God or truth or love

    This is my songwriting suicide bomb
    This is my songwriting suicide bomb
