lyrics

Those words are words are just words
The letters they got shaken down
How'd they fit all those books together?
The wool is off the flock
Now go tend to the litter
Let the choir sing in the dark

We did all we could do
To make all things all new again
Stained glass in red, white, and blue
And we hymned for the morning
We hymned for the South
As the plate goes round the pews

Guilt on Fourth of July
But the weather is kind
Bourbon, sugar, and mint
A marionette
The stars will guide us through
And never do us wrong
Nevermind the telltales
The sea or the sails
I know that you lied
I know that you lied
