lyrics

Can you show me a good trick 

Show me some magic

Can you pull the whole world

From my ear?

I hate how the best things 

Keep disappearing

Like Leonard and Bowie 

And the ice caps here

And we’re left with this 

Ignorant bliss

When we find a good thing 

We can’t hold onto it

THE GOLDEN AGE

IT SURE WAS GREAT

THE SUN WAS SO PRETTY

WE COULDN’T LOOK AWAY

Now I can’t see my brother

My sister or mother

Through the rose-colored glasses 

Of my own news feed

And the sermon I’m giving

In this new algorithm —

It’s falling on deaf ears

Cause the choir already believes

Tell me, where are our heroes

Are they stuck at the wall?

Cause we got some real villains to stop 

Before they kill us all

THE GOLDEN AGE

IT’S OURS TO SAVE

I HEAR THE BELLS RINGING

ARE YOU AWAKE?

Can you show me a your best trick 

Your slick brand of magic

Your pen’s not a wand

To make us disappear

I see what you’re doing

With the Jews and the Muslims 

You’re sawing us all

In half with your fake fear

My heart’s full of love

And all kinds of peace 

But I think even
I 
Could punch a Nazi 
In the face

THE GOLDEN AGE

IT GOES AWAY

IF WE JUST STAND HERE

WITH OUR HANDS UP 

BEGGING, “DON’T SHOOT, PLEASE!”

I’m sure Mars is nice

And I do love the moon

But this is my home

I’m not leaving anytime soon

So call if you need me

I promise I’m there 

With a thermos of coffee 

And cups to share

I’ll be out on my island

Until the dawn breaks

Hanging out with the night watch 

My lamp raised
