Going to a Town
I'm goin' to a town that has already been burnt down
I'm goin' to a place that has already been disgraced
I'm gonna see some folks who have already been let down
I'm so tired of America

I'm gonna make it up for all of The Sunday Times
I'm gonna make it up for all of the nursery rhymes
They never really seem to want to tell the truth
I'm so tired of you, America

Makin' my own way home
Ain't gonna be alone
I got a life to lead, America
I got a life to lead

Tell me do you really think you go to hell for having loved
Tell me enough of thinkin' everything that you've done is good
I really need to know
After soakin' the body of Jesus Christ in blood
I'm so tired of America

I really need to know
I may just never see you again or might as well
You took advantage of a world that loved you well
I'm goin' to a town that has already been burnt down
I'm so tired of you, America

Makin' my own way home
Ain't gonna be alone
I got a life to lead, America
I got a life to lead
I got a soul to feed
I got a dream to heed
And that's all I need

Makin' my own way home
Ain't gonna be alone
I'm goin' to a town
That has already been burnt down
