Our Town

Our Town (from the album and play Immaculate Misconceptions)

Whether yelling “white power” or snorting white powder
Our Mayor is guilty and hangs
Whether sucking on sewage or judging the Jewish
Our vampire’s venomous fangs

It’s our town… it’s our town
It’s our town… our town.

While running in riots, the news team will buy it
Plump payroll reserved for police
A dark cloud surrounds us, our conscience confounds us
Our boredom our biggest disease


Sometimes I wander alone, as gunshots ring out in the night
Why do I call this my home? Something just doesn’t feel right.

Whether angel or devil we all need a shovel
To dig ourselves out of our hole
Our history hinders – caught hard in the cinders
Of fossils of black slate and coal
