Ain't No Lookin' Back


Lyrics & Info

Performances (3)

All of your ghosts
Litter the horizon
Glittering carcasses
I guess that makes twice then
Just like your daisies
And all of your buffalo
You don't worry
The children will mend what you tore

You dress yourself in shark bites
You kill yourself in spoonfuls
You damn all the beehives
You make love to potholes
Your attention is a junkie
It has a wandering vein
And all of your thoughtlessness
Is dried up rain

Ain't no lookin' back, now---Is there kid?
You always look to the west
You throw caution to the wind
You're on a one way track
But you can't buy caution back---Can you kid?

You killed a man
Because you made him borrow
One suicide is made up
Of ten thousand tiny sorrows
America's great
Its the land of the free
We're so independent
That we forgot how to breathe

Ain't no lookin' back, now---Is there kid?
You always look to the west
You throw caution to the wind
You're on a one way track
But you can't buy caution back---Can you kid?

Show me one hero
Who ain't afraid of fear
Show me one adult
That knows how to hear
We are the future
At least that's what you said
I wanna know:
Who's the hope of today?

There's no lookin' back now for you---Is there kid?

All of your ghosts
Litter the horizon
Glittering carcasses
I guess that makes twice then
Just like your daisies
And all of your buffalo
You don't worry
The children will mend what you tore

Ain't No Lookin' Back
