Ballad for an Ex-Teenage Revolutionary

Pissin' in the wind of violence
bracing for end times
Your friends are all out drinking
you're home writing party lines
They're probably all informants anyway
I wouldn't be surprised
what with all the threats and hatred
the mass incarcerations

When beating all the ideology
out of them gets tired
You're singing about ambitions
whether noble or otherwise,
talking hostages in basements
and then going into hiding
but we're coming out complacent
with kids and renovations

And praying for a war
to take us away from here
The belly of the beast
has stomach pains my dear
Well if we can't have self-determination
an island will have to do –
some isolation

Scapegoats prying at the gates gettin'
close but no cigar
Our friends are all out voting
we're here sorting body parts We were
sexual we were revolutionary
picture perfect stalwarts
who gave up all that liberation
for a cheap package vacation

They're praying for a war
to take us away from here
The belly of the beast
has stomach pains my dear
Well if we can't have self-determination
an island will have to do –
some isolation
