1.
you’re the only secondary salmon nation under the sun on the edge of all creation handsome homestead without a gun sun sets I have no memory of the places we’ve sung stacking stones with our enemies they call us to the cellar one by one you’re the only secondary salmon nation under the sun on the edge of fields of granite seas of grasses a band undone and in the flash of the firelight wrapped in blankets we made when the last lonely embers died they put us all to bed and stole away you’re alight you’re alight our tongues were never tied the church keys and the ditch weed kept it sanctified you’re alight and when you took off for that razor town, well, something in me died cupping clouds of fireflies built a home for fireflies found a name for fireflies

pack your bags before we head for the coast one last toast to the pope slowly sailing through the horizon line perhaps some day you’ll find when you’re trying to unwind there’s no one to say goodnight to you in the lower hemisphere shattered streets where we poured our concrete over six feet something tells me this ain’t what we won guess I could call you my baby the right that they gave me: an acre and axe and a girl spend my evenings singing songs about you, franco, the boat, and the crew, and the 80,000 who knew there’s no one to say goodbye to you in the lower hemisphere shattered streets where we poured our concrete over six feet something tells me this ain’t what we won and I thought that I was dreaming just lying in your arms faces fade and I forget you I won’t let you run away from here pack up, we’re heading for home tell the boys back in rome there’s nothing left of the loan spend my evenings singing songs about you and everyone that we knew hoping they were all were true there’s no one to say goodbye to you in the lower hemisphere shattered streets where we poured our concrete over six feet something tells me this ain’t what we won shattered streets where we poured our concrete over six feet there’s no way to get back where you’re from
