Nellie McKay Adios Lyrics

If time runs like a river
I saw my people bathed in blood
And if the faithful find the sinners
I'll have to leave all I loved

(Adios)
Goodbye, O hypocrite heathens
(Adios)
Goodbye, O false paradise
(Adios)
Goodbye, O rinky-dink Eden
And may you lie yourselves to sleep
Tonight

We're marching through the madness
With not a soul about to see
We're moving through the fortress
Chasing the ghosts of anarchy

(Adios)
Goodbye, my Frankenstein lady
(Adios)
Goodbye, O pagan delights
(Adios)
Goodbye, and good riddance, baby
And may you lie yourselves to sleep
Tonight
