lyrics

I was born on a conveyor belt
Watching the lists go by
(And the lips on the ships in the sky)
And they bathed me like a Roosevelt
I was the baby who never cried
(Shits out the grits and the pie)
But now I'm gone
and I'm hidden in the heart of the city that time forgot

In the evening when the sun is low
and the rats scurry to the side
(Creep and they peek with their eyes)
I'll be laying on a cardboard sign
with dried blood in my crusty eyes
(Hurt in the dirt every time)
Because I'm gone
and I'm hidden in the heart of the city that used to be

So go with daddy to the countryside
or go with mama to the sea
(Leap to the tops of the trees)
Either way you know I'm terrified
by the sunshine and the bees
(Something is not what it seems)
And so I'm gone
and I'm hidden in the heart of the city that never was
