    "Harry And Maggie" Lyrics

    I was born on a close street down a hill
    The trees that line the street
    Could sense the winter change
    They felt the chill
    They ducked and dived
    And so we knew that they were alive
    Until the year the silver rain came down
    The trees turned mauve
    And so did my hands
    Oh, and the sound
    There was no sound and I'm freezing in the sun
    Nobody cares to hide the dopeheads and the suicides
    'Cause everyone freezes in the sun
    And it's fallin' away

    I kicked around with Harry
    Who lived near Salisbury Plain
    He worked on the cathedral there every now and again
    He worked with stone, carved with stone
    Odd jobs on the telephone
    One sunny day he was sent to the Houses of Parliament
    Chipping' away at the gargoyles
    Under the blistering sun
    He carved out "Maggie Sucks" on the backs of every one
    And so in five-hundred years
    There's gonna be some history here
    After it all subsides in the sun

    And it's fallin' away
    And I don't wanna know
    I'm glad I don't know
    What's draggin' it under

    Another day, another loon
    A new pied piper calls the tune
    So blow it up, watch it explode
    Noah's ark on overload
    Wrestle with the results and throw 'em round the ring
    Everybody knows there ain't no rules in wrestling
    (everybody knows there ain't no rules)
    The referee's a dupe
    Who only old ladies and children believe
    I'm getting up now to leave
    I'll go back to that street someday
    The air's better there anyway
    Though the trees are still gonna freeze in the sun

    And it's fallin' away
    And I don't wanna know
    I'm glad I don't know
    What's draggin' it under
