​Stars And Stripes

This song is by Ballboy.

You wait in by the telephone for the beautiful Argentinean girl to call
But it's been a week now
And you're sick of drink and waking up to headaches and financial embarrassment
But it keeps on happening
And your paint gun's lying empty there are pristine walls in galleries that you just can't face
Not today anyway
And the President says you're an influence on kids in the street but you don't know what he means
You didn't vote for him anyway

And the stars and stripes will shine
All across the land tonight
And your name will be up high in brightly coloured lights
And the stars and stripes will shine
All across the land tonight
And your name will be up high in brightly coloured lights

And the tabloid press still phone you up for interviews about your work, but you turn them down
You've got nothing to say to them
Another girl, another work of art, another bright red wall, another panic attack and who knows
Where it will all end

And the stars and stripes will shine for you tonight
All across the USA your name will be in lights
And you don't know anything that you want more
But you don't know anything you want anymore
And you are a man again
You are a man again
