children pretend
that they are Indians again
you see
they shoot me with their
flaming arrows

the empty sky
turns orange from the fire
we'll burn the bank
we'll burn the school
we'll burn the prison

the roadside bends
at the place where night begins
kicking up the dust
along the way

you told me something
I didn't want to see
you burned the trouble
into me

I'm eating all the dirt
there is in paradise
tell me
how are things with you

I won't stay long
you see now it's all been burnt down
and like the smoke
I want to drift away
