Revolution

Lyrics

The sprinklers are coming on
It’s early morning
I’m thinking of a dream I had
While the lawn drinks the day ahead
In these places I can breathe
I feel highways I hear the sea
And everything I’ve ever seen
In all the windows of the world come to visit me

I get sick I get well
But am I ever better?
I can never tell
I move papers I straighten shelves
I move and straighten I refuse to fail
And I’m as happy as I am small
I look for reasons I call down the hall

All the good men in the world won today
And in one big bomb all the war on earth went away

No white and blue
Or Senator Joe
No aim indian
No demonstration
No Mao Tse Tung
Or holy kingdom coming
Revolution of no one
No collective voice
Or salvation
No cry to the sky
Just a low hum
No neighbors wife
Or television
Revolution of no one

I tell you you’re pretty
Like it’s something you did
We move through the fog like cameras
In the cool grey days that mean summer’s coming
You sound so sure
Be sure for the both of us
If you didn’t hear me the first time what I said was

All the wars in the world were won today
And in one big bomb all the good men on earth went away

No white and blue
Or Senator Joe
No aim indian
No demonstration
No Mao Tse Tung
Or holy kingdom coming
Revolution of no one
No collective voice
Or salvation
No cry to the sky
Just a low hum
No neighbors wife
Or television
Revolution of no one
