Killing Time EP cover       

 

Could paint the Statue of Liberty
With the blood from a million lies
Sit still at the hub of a nation
Turn the sound bytes up to drown the cries

 

Chorus:
And twenty feet from your doorstep
With a hand outstretched
And a lifetime etched in a face as black as oil
Sits Serenity—your enemy, right?

 

Could fill the dome of the capitol
With the ash from a foreign fire
Abstain from the term: opposition
An irrelevant yellow leads the choir

 

Chorus:
And twenty feet from your doorstep
With a hand outstretched
And a lifetime etched in a face as black as oil
Sits Serenity—your enemy, right?

 

Could fill that hole in the Pentagon
With the bones from denied trials
Make way for the King—be “United”
Corporational rights won’t be defiled

 

Chorus:
And twenty feet from your doorstep
With a hand outstretched
And a lifetime etched in a face as black as oil
Sits Serenity—your enemy, right?

 

Bridge:
Blackouts and bombings keep us in fear
Anything to get you elected—sort of—for four more years

Could paint the Statue of Liberty
With the blood from a million lies
With the blood from a million lies

 

Chorus:
And twenty feet from your doorstep
With a hand outstretched
And a lifetime etched in a face as black as oil
Sits Serenity—your enemy, right?

Your enemy, right—?




Lyric notes: the first verse popped into my head in a grocery story parking lot about 10 days before 9/11... then finished writing during the rest of the Bush W administration.
