(and all you wanna do is kill all that was once wonderful
someone deserved it somewhere but my chicago, she was incredible. indelible.)
i woke from a dream
and my chicago was burning
it was a tap in the wire
that led the airplanes straight into
my big sears tower
the anchors said it was a pair of lovers
makes sense that they above all others
would ruin the city with its lifestyle so pretty
would ruin my dreams
the pilot said they were travelling at a breakneck speed
he was the only one to survive
he was so glad so glad to be alive
i still think he should have died
his life for mine?
all i wanted rested on that skyline
i guess we all gotta destroy something beautiful sometime.
look up. see the flames?
this is what happens, it seems
when you set a lit match
