The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
And focusing it on the sky
The ninety nine red balloons go by

99 Red Balloons

A band of skeletons is playing,
Don’t act like you don’t know the tune.
Your part is echoed in the path,
Of every dead leaf blowing past,
Against a counterpoint reflected off the moon.

There was a shopping mall
Now it’s all covered with flowers
You’ve got it, you’ve got it
If this is paradise
I wish I had a lawnmower
You’ve got it, you’ve got it

(Nothing But) Flowers

I wanted to walk through the empty streets
And feel something constant under my feet
But all the news reports
Recommended that I stay in doors

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Grey clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
