Ashes Of American Flags Lyrics

The cash machine is blue and green
For a hundred in twenties and a small service fee
I could spend three dollars and sixty-three cents
On Diet Coca-Cola and unlit cigarettes
I wonder why we listen to poets when nobody gives a fuck
How hot and sorrowful, this machine begs for luck

All my lies are always wishes
I know I would die if I could come back new

…………………………*……………………….

We want a good life with a nose for things
The fresh wind and bright sky to enjoy my suffering
A hole without a key if I break my tongue
Speaking of tomorrow, how will it ever come?

All my lies are always wishes
I know I would die if I could come back new

…………………………*……………………….

I’m down on my hands and knees
Every time a doorbell rings
I shake like a toothache
When I hear myself sing

All my lies are only wishes
I know I would die if I could come back new

…………………………*……………………….

I would like to salute
The ashes of American flags
And all the fallen leaves
Filling up shopping bags…

The cash machine is blue and green

For a hundred in twenties and a small service fee

I could spend three dollars and sixty-three cents

On Diet Coca-Cola and unlit cigarettes


I wonder why we listen to poets

When nobody gives a fuck

How hot and sorrowful

This machine begs for luck


All my lies are always wishes

I know I would die if I could come back new



I want a good life

With a nose for things

A fresh wind and bright sky

To enjoy my suffering

A hole without a key

If I break my tongue

Speaking of tomorrow

How will it ever come?


All my lies are always wishes

I know I would die if I could come back new


I’m down on my hands and knees

Every time the doorbell rings

I shake like a toothache

When I hear myself sing

All my lies are only wishes

I know I would die if I could come back new


I would like to salute

The ashes of merican flags

And all the fallen leaves

Filling up shopping bags
