Jason Webley - August Closing His Mouth After A Long Summer's Yawn lyrics

I think that we can breathe now, the world is over
Send all the children over now, red rover

Well, I guess the world stopped spinning
When supply somehow met demand
An uncashed paycheck in my pocket
And atom bombs in Pakistan

Now I'm sitting on a bus
A shade too tired to be annoyed
While two human avocados
A shade too loudly discuss Freud

That's okay, the experts say
'Cause at least the air is clearer now

I think that we can breathe now, the world is over
Waiting in a field of nine-leaf clovers

Sipping tea in an oasis
While we watch the desert spread
And we're counting on our virtues
'Cause it's too hard to count the dead

There's a pretty girl beside me
Think she wants to hold my hand
But she's speaking in a tongue
I think I'll never understand

But that's okay, the experts say
'Cause at least the air is clearer now

I think that we can breathe now, the world is over
We had our chances to be fighters
Now we're burned-out twenty-something poetry writers

Guess there's nothing really left to do
But seal our eyes and nostrils up with glue
And observe the sticky residue that's all that's left of me and...
