Broke On (Audiotree Live Version) Lyrics

By Wild Pink
Take from Wild Pink on Audiotree Live Album


Theodore Roosevelt was on my TV
Looking through the window at the Hudson Valley
He said "If you don't stop moving
You will never feel bad"
So I hung an envelope on my wall
That says PMA

Ride your bike through Oldster
Driving in your dad's car
Taking candid pictures
Where the widows spend their days
At the Sweepstake Cafe

You'll hear about the war
And know it's not yours
Then dedicate yourself to the stones
The ones you broke on

You only say "no"
That's how you get your way
You say those stupid things
To get attention

Why would you have a kid
When the city you live in
Will be underwater soon?

At a time when
All this happens
To be open
You've got to think small

You'll hear about the war
And know it's not yours
And dedicate yourself to the stones
The ones you broke on
