The Accidentals – Heavy Flag Lyrics

0

VERSE 1
I shiver like a paper bag
The cold can wave a heavy flag
And nothing shines like silver lines
When everyone’s a paradigm
And all around is double speak,
I hide it in a troubled sleep
In mountains bare on pavement plain
In waves of pesticided grain

CHORUS 1
I recognize the truth when it shakes hands with self-deceit
Pays for my beliefs and throws away the receipt
It’s all in my head, and then it’s nestled at my feet
Heavy flag

VERSE 2
A farrago of motion sick
A turbulence arithmetic
We passed a thousand billboard signs
And trampled over columbines
But how do we choke down the pain?
With nicotine to tease the brain
Our bladed lives with softened edge,
We pop our pills and speak our pledge

CHORUS 2
I recognize the truth when it shakes hands with self-deceit
Pays for my beliefs and throws away the receipt
It’s all in my head, and then it’s nestled at my feet
Heavy flag
SOLO

VERSE 3
Our sympathy’s a symphony
But everyone is out of key
Cause we locked the doors and turned the blinds
And left it to the focused eye
We dug a shallow rabbit’s grave
Deposited our given names
And when our pride was railroad flat
Shook away the warmth of a welcome mat

CHORUS 3
I recognize the truth when it shakes hands with self-deceit
Pays for my beliefs and throws away the receipt
It’s all in my head, and then it’s nestled at my feet
Heavy flag (repeat)
