Gray light, new day leaks through the window
An old soul song comes on the alarm clock radio
We walked the 40 blocks to the middle
Of the place we heard that everything would be
And there were barricades to keep us off the street
But the crowd kept pushing forward
Till they swallowed the police

Yeah they went wild
Yeah they went wild
Yeah they went wild
Yeah they went wild

We left before the dust had time to settle
And all the broken glass swept off the avenue
And all the way home held your camera like a Bible
Just wishing so bad that it held some kind of truth
And I stood nervous next to you, in the dark room
You dropped the paper in my water
And it all begins to bloom

Yeah they go wild
Yeah they go wild
Yeah they go wild
Yeah they go wild

And just when I get so lonesome, I can't speak
I see some flowers on a hillside
Like a wall of new TV's
Yeah they go wild
Yeah they go wild
Yeah they go wild
Yeah they go wild
Yeah they go wild
Yeah they go wild
Yeah they go wild
Yeah they go wild
