  • The country's breathing a sigh of stars
    A *****'s baby from a buzzard's egg
    American fortune seekers
    West coast gold diggers
    Southern forgetters
    There's something wrong

    I'm panning for hope in a junk sick river
    Trying to find the other two bits on my dollar
    Down fault lines and phone lines
    On every breath of every dawn
    There's something wrong

    The prairie's bearing the vulture's child
    The whippoorwill sails on a lonesome call
    From the twilight to the horizon
    There's something wrong

    I'm looking for the jackalope in a burnt out car
    In the dirt behind the daydream
    Through a window painted on a blackened building
    There's something wrong
    And the click-clack of the freight train goes
    This and that, this and that
    'Till your ears are ringing
    And your vision is clouded
