​See Willy Fly By

This song is by Waco Brothers and appears on the album Cowboy in Flames (1997).

In this suburb of Babylon, they don't like to wait
They kill the messenger 'cause the message was late.
They kill the child starving at the gate
Predicting the ruin of the state.

See Willy fly by, in the by and by
In the never you mind, in the dollar store light.
In the there you go, in the the wait and see
In the us and them, in the them and us, in the them and me.
He's the exception that proves the rule
That all your dreams are a lie
How much will you swallow when Willy flies by?

There's something rotten round here, yeah nobody forgot
All the rest on the bottom, white men still on the top
Walk and talk with Suzie, shoot to cripple and maim
Shoot to kill again and again and again

Gonna build me a house, on a mountain so high
Gonna sit in my car and stare up at the sky
The dream is a lie, I'm gonna put it to the test
One man rising up on the backs of the rest
On the backs of his family, all the duds and the does
Till the sun melts his wings and down we all go

See Willy fly by, in the by and by
In the never you mind, in the dollar store light
In the there you go, in the wait and see
In the us and them, in the them and us,
In the should have been me
He's the exception that proves the rule
All your dreams are a lie
See trains all leaving without you, when Willy flies by.
