40 Years

This song is by Counting Crows.

Well I was born in the jungle, the sickening smell of cinnamon in the air
Born in a white hole and I can't believe the colors here today
Stalk on a circle, I've never been blessed with elephant's memory
Riding a red line nowhere

If it takes 40 years for the gun to be paid for
If it takes 40 years I'll put the money away
If it takes 40 years to get the things that I need sir
If it takes 40 years I'll walk the thunder and the rain

I was born in a good home, where the rising cost of raising children
Is not a factor and I can't believe the things it does to me
I'm filled with the white noise, well I never did much of anything anyway
Jump on a big train nowhere

If it takes 40 years for the gun to be paid for
If it takes 40 years I'll put the money away
If it takes 40 years to get the things that I need sir
If it takes 40 years I'll walk the thunder and the rain

I wanna buy me a good heart, and a conscience, and maybe raise some children
I wanna get me a good wife, and a garden, garden, garden, garden
I'll start me a new life with a six foot color television
I wanna start me a new life somewhere

Well I was born on a warm night on the right coast of south-eastern America
Dead on arrival, but you can't believe the things you hear today
I'll fly me a white plane over water over blue and green
And land in the ocean somewhere

If it takes 40 years for the gun to be paid for
If it takes 40 years I'll put the money away
If it takes 40 years to get the things that I need sir
If it takes 40 years well I'll walk that thunder
Yeah and I'll walk that rain, yeah I'll walk that rain
Oh come on now, now gimme the thunder, gimme the thunder
Gimme the rain, yeah I'll walk that rain
I'll walk the thunder and the rain
