lyrics

there's nothing going on here
bags are packed, you're headed south
an empty mind is great for holding pain

a greener place to call a home
there's nothing quite the same
starting fresh from taking all the blame

it's cold outside but the mountain air
can free your frozen lungs
the stars at night illuminate the dream:

to just escape the current that wants to
pull you down the drain
but the plants can't grow without a little rain

a man in black can track you down
and offer you the world
even though the mountains are a home

good old Kentucky keeps you warm
and safe and sound
the rivers and the sky in Kodachrome

but something about his drilling stare
can cut into your mind
he can see where your weaknesses lie

he knows that you need money
and someone to yell your name
and in the limousine, your home flies by

while men in suits stare down on you
their heads up in the clouds

the air is thin and the light is dim
and they won't hear the sounds
of the workers singing "bring it down,
the tower's too high up"

but no one can get their towers high enough!

no one is around to call it off!

trees are falling, children scream as their
homeland turns to rust
and they just can't get the towers high enough!
