THE AMBER WAVES HAVE LET ME DOWN


Purple Mountain’s mercury
From sea to oily sea
The amber waves have let me down
Some men sleep on currency
Some men sleep on ground
The amber waves have let me down

Coca-Cola Teabag Halliburton Fox
The amber waves have let me down
Run ‘em through a combine
Put ‘em in a box
The amber waves have let me down

Chorus: Home is where the coma is
I feel so numb tonight
I cannot say it better
No, I cannot say it better
The amber waves have let me down

Disease seems like a cure to me
The weeds a woven crown
The amber waves have let me down
This scene seems like a curse to me
The burning bush is brown
The amber waves have let me down

Chorus

So I’ll try to shed some light tonight
And dream of fruited plain
The amber waves have let me down
Someone get a corkscrew
Won’t someone pray for rain
The amber waves have let me down

Chorus: Home is where the coma is
I feel so numb tonight
I cannot say it better
No, I cannot say it better
The amber waves have let me down
