Scott Walker - Patriot (A Single) lyrics

ja '91'
see how
they run

I brought nylons
from New York
some had butterflies
some had specks

I brought nylons
from New York
Hard flat butterflies
some had specks

The good news
you cannot refuse

The bad news
is there is
no news

Tonight he'll
rise
he'll sell his
arms
to anyone
who asks
about

As-in-the wind
As-in the rain
As-in-as in
As-in-without

oh
the
Luzerner
Zeitung

the Luzerner
Zeitung
never
sold out
never
sold
out

Cripple fingers
hit the muezzin
yells

some had Columbine
some had
specks

Cripple fingers
hit the rounds
of shells

Some had
clinging vine
some had
specks

the good news
you cannot
refuse

the bad news
is there is
no news

tonight he'll
rise
he'll leave
these arms
to anyone
who asks
about

as-in-the tracks
as-in the wrists
as-in-you been
as-in-without

oh
the Luzerner
Zeitung

the
Luzerner
Zeitung
never
sold
out
never
sold
out

See how it
blows

a mile
up the road

color of moon

it swirls and
collects

unfolding and
tumbling
up this back
road

swirling butterflies
swirling flecks
