Blues 2

Went down to the gallows
Where Mr. Cheney holds Evil down
a half-dead child crawled across the floor
but he couldn’t make a sound
cuz they take you and they break you
the Lawyers don’t care how

When they built the walls round Jericho
All the people came looking round
but when they waterboarded Jericho
the walls came tumbling down
But Mr. Cheney’s still on the warpath
Gonna keep it underground.

Walked outside and breathed it in
that air thick as water, sharp with salt
A tropical sun, a buried secret or two
“We goddamn know the so-and-so at fault”
But it ain’t your safety you should be worried about
It’s your own soul under assault.
