Battle of Bedford Falls (Audiotree Live Version) Lyrics
By Wild Pink
Take from Wild Pink on Audiotree Live Album
A physicist and priest were cutting up in a room When the ghost walked in And sucked the air out of the room And they said, "Are you friendly? are you foe? What can you confidently tell us You even really know?"
He said he got up early and worked all day He came back home and slept his life away Choices dwindled and the daylight dimmed But he got right up and lived the nightmare all over again
I haven't figured it out yet You assumed a good boy would just take it on the chin Get right up and do it over again Because you need a good boy to just take it on the chin
But he said, "There's no war that's left to win" And on my headstone it should've said "Had a long life but never had a chance to live"
I just wanted to go down Go down in my own ship I just wanted to go down Go down in my own ship I just wanted to go down Go down in my own ship
Keep your eyes on your smartphone While we circle the same drain
Good guys with guns Are digging ditches in cap and gowns And American Idols are Engineering the perfect moment
They heard gatekeepers hate cold calls But I've been wrong I've done awful things And embarrassed myself I've let my people down But I, I don't wanna be good It's ok there's no future for us, I wanna be good I don't wanna be good It's ok that our time is a camera flash in a stadium Where this useless game is played again And again and again and again And again and again and again
