lyrics

There's graffiti on my street
Advising me to smash elites
And though the words are crass
Someone took the time to answer back

"But I don't think the government will ever pass a law
That says it's OK to kill superstars
Just drag them from their cars"

There's a stillness here (repeat 3x)
I know I left it somewhere

There's a nervous front coming in, I feel the brunt
Of its force the way it shakes me from its course
Then in the vacuum we call outer space
Some Russian shakes my hand
And he swears he's seen my face

There's a stillness here (repeat 3x)
I know I left it somewhere

My mind moves best when I'm tired
The conflict starts and I retreat
Even when my cupboard's empty
I still find something to eat

And in our debts we all fall on jealous times
And we relive our abandons to keep us from our crimes
In rehearsal we say all we mean to say
But in the end we embrace, a stranger takes our place

(Instrumental chorus with accordion and fiddle)

There's a stillness here (repeat 3x)
I know I left it somewhere
