lyrics

Poughkeepsie
From the laundry room I can see the hallway floor
There's a rope ladder hanging from the attic door
But the passwords in a language I don't speak
Would you be kind enough to guide these hands

Locked to the light I see a child's bike
There's a man twice my age with the saddle raised high
Old movies come bootlegged in old CD sleeves
And cigarettes come single a quarter a piece
Oh Poughkeepsie

How fast and how ruthless here route 9 becomes
How the high street she cries my death has begun
There's a word I saw carved in the bark of a tree
Would you lend me your knife to sharpen my teeth
Oh Poughkeepsie

On the church lawn there's a message from your Father above
It says No Gun Allowed Stop Playing God
The big band leader sighs as he counts down to three
And we waltz between tables and empty seat
Oh Poughkeepsie

Well in time I will find a reason to love you
In time we will learn to share with ease
But now send me to bed with the windows locked
Oh Poughkeepsie
