where were you when i laid the foundations of the earth?
did you know what happened?
did you care?
why should i be good, when you aren’t?
| 1 |
leaving it behind
we head to the tropics.
| 2 |
lost and speaking br o ken spanish
and outdated gringo peace offerings
what i want to do, i can’t do. i do what i hate.
i look across the canal into panamanian eyes.
| 3 |
we give up and drink cheap cervezas
surrounded by neon stucco walls
what are we to you?
| 4 |
tell us a story from before we can remember
the man with black skin gets off on anti-american radio shows
i want to show him i agree but his city has locked him out for twenty years
and i am the face of the enemy

a cuba libre is just a rum and coke.
make me good. make me brave.
