lyrics

“Give me your tired; your poor” she said
Her pants engulfed in flames
Her eyes, they seemed so genuine
And her robe disguised her shame

She once had such open arms
Her gaze fixed upon the sea
But the copper they used to make her
Has turned dollar bill green

And if the fences aren’t tall enough
We’re equipped to build a wall
And if that doesn’t stop the floodgates
I guess we’ll have to kill them all.

Greetings from paradise; it’s even better than TV
A picture postcard the likes you’ve never seen
With champagne rivers and gold paved streets
And so many pretty people with nothing underneath
The winds of change have stopped blowing
Now the real storm has settled in
All that’s left now is the acid rain
And a sense of entitlement

And if we don’t squander our inheritance
Before we’re overtaken with disease
We may face the reckoning we’ve earned
By building this machine

And every idea has externalities
Like every creature has its flaws
I heard the last cries of defiance
As she was clenching down her jaws

Greetings from paradise; it’s even better than TV
A picture postcard the likes you’ve never seen
With champagne rivers and gold paved streets
And so many pretty people with nothing underneath
