we the people lyrics – tear garden

the revolution came and they blew it.
they made a hole three centuries deep, and filled it.
they swept in all the streets, all the freaks and all the finest.
now we’re wading, we’re knee-deep
and i can’t tell you what the time is
because the palace clock is ten miles up
and i am too short-sighted.
but that’s life…
now there’s four of us down here,
but i don’t like the other three
except for you dear.
let’s have a coup dear.
