City With No Children
The summer that I broke my arm, I waited for your letter
I have no feeling for you now, now that I know you better

I wish that I could have loved you then before our age was through
And before a world war does with us whatever it will do

Dreamed I drove home to Houston on a highway that was underground
There was no light that we could see as we listened to the sound of the engine failing

I feel like I've been living in a city with no children in it
A garden left for ruin by a billionaire inside of a private prison

You never trust a millionaire, quoting the sermon on the mount
I used to think I was not like them but I'm beginning to have my doubts, my doubts about it

When you're hiding underground, the rain can't get you wet
Do you think your righteousness could pay the interest on your debt? I have my doubts about it

I feel like I've been living in a city with no children in it
A garden left for ruin by a billionaire inside of a private prison
I feel like I've been living in a city with no children in it
A garden left for ruin by and by as I hide inside of my private prison
