Cold Specks - Winter Solstice

We fell from a dying tree
We wait for it to leave
I wanna be, I wanna be 
Leave ashes for borrowed instruments and borrowed hearts
We will pass them on to every saint and dead lover
I have my God so give me my ghosts 

Sons and daughters, 
may you kill what my blind heart could not
Sons and daughters, 
may you kill what my blind heart could not
Sons and daughters, 
may you kill 

I saw your grandfather's death on the news
Remembered when you took me to your room
You put your hand over your chest
Swore that the fire would rage

Whoa I... 
I put my hand over my chest, sons and daughters
I put my hand over my chest, sons and daughters
I put my hand over my chest, sons and daughters
Swore that the fire would rage

Yeah, you know better ways to fall
Yeah, you know better ways to fall
You know better ways to fall
You knock me down, knock me down
Put my cold hand over my cold heart
Turn the fire and die whoa
Turn the fire and die whoa
Turn the fire to die

Lou Reed - Last Great American Whale (Live at Farm Aid 1990)
Well, Americans don't care for much of anything
Land and water, the least
And animal life is low on the totem pole
With human life not worth more than infected yeast
Americans don't care too much for beauty
They'll shit in a river, dump battery acid in a stream
They'll watch dead rats wash up on the beach
Complain if they can't swim
They say things are done for the majority
Don't believe half of what you see and none of what you hear
It's like what my painter friend Donald said to me
"Stick a fork in their ass and turn them over, they're done"
