The Felice Brothers - Jack At The Asylum

Song Rating: 8.12/10

Song lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Im in the loony bin
The dead fish
The air-conditioning
I got a ticket for your grande finale
Its 130 in d**h Valley

Ive been lost and double-crossed
Chased down and stabbed in the bloody frost
Im a lost child on your evening news
Youre a queen in a castle of sugar cubes

[Chorus]
America!
America!

[Verse 2]
Ive seen your guillotine
A fat boy adrift in a limousine
Through the land of the lost Cherokee
Down the rivers of red majesty

And Ive seen your pastures of green
The crack whores, the wars on the silver screen


Hiroshima and the lynching tree
Its a wonder my eyes still can see

[Chorus]
America!
America!
You give me nightmares

[Verse 3]
Did you k** your son Joe Hill?
The night nurse, she read me his final will
I thought of running off, but where would I go?
I wouldnt make it beyond Buffalo

Id miss your cowgirl kiss
The red fangs, the lips, the avarice
Its getting high time for your grande finale
Its 130 in d**h Valley

[Chorus]
America!
America!
You give me dreams to dream
Popcorn memories and in love
