lyrics

I fell into Picher, OK
Covered in chat with nothing to say
Dusts heaving gusts through the holes in our roofs
Don't know where to go but sure got to move

Three thousand fists make a throng of Tom Joads
But the tractors they send or driven by ghosts
For the sins of our fathers we can stay and they will bury us at home

I woke up on an outbound train
In a chemical bath they never did drain
Dads dragging kids 'cross the poison mounds
Sun setting fast on the way out of town

There's a cancer in them mountains
Running auburn in the streams
But Tar Creek cannot build our houses
On the hollows of our dreams

This machine can't slay old Doe Run
Got no Guthries at the wheel
Our lungs burn with Cadmium
From generations trading their lives for steel

I woke up in Galena today
Rubbed my eyes but it looks the same
Cracks in the street breathing water and lime
Standing for now but it’s a matter of time
