​Rome

This song is by Abraham Cloud and appears on the album The Wind Is Falling In Love (2005).

Even though the road is wet the cars they are still coming
Nothing stops ecstatic space and time
Blending into one colossally immense machine
Escaping some enormous history

Don't they know
Don't they know don't they know
This was once called Rome

Even though it's new years day I'm safe an warm and far away
I paid my rent just yesterday
Nothing here can touch me now
I'm distant and immune
I can watch disaster on TV

Don't they know
Don't they know don't they know
This was once called Rome

5 am on Monday morning
Engines at full throttle
Burning up the dinosaurs and cave men
Grinding meshing sanding sounds
Creating clouds and chomping down
The beef burrito puts me back to sleep

Dialing up the internet to order out for discount sex
The message comes from almost out of nowhere
Meet me at the shopping mall (flying through the wires and ground
I am Sue my friend is Paul

Venture out on city streets past breaking dreams and facial cream
Crossing at the light they call desire
