lyrics

Now this is how it was before we threw down all your Maker’s
We all dressed up like Indians and stormed the Boston Harbor
There was liberty and slavery and ecstasy and irony
We ended up on Bedford drinking Pabst for the prestige
Now everyone is talking about the need for a rebellion
Our tea is taxed, our credit’s maxed and Cheers went off the air
We don't know who we're fighting for but everyone agrees
We'll keep our ribbons and our sugar and give up on all our dreams

And I know we've got to let it go

Now this is how it was before we built the Wilson Dam
Idyllic but outmoded and ideal for just the past
And in the cities they were cheering "Thank God for the TVA"
But in the woods it was a fable about eminent domain

I know it's time to sell our souls
Oh I know that we've got to let it go

Hey hey hey, we're just driving in the dark
Trying just to get another start
Your eyes are forward and your mouth is shut
Trying to get out of this rut

Now back in '65 nobody seemed to give a damn
There were some Pinkos and some Beatles but no one was running scared
But then we marched on Washington and said change was due
I guess that Tet offended me more than it offended you

And I know four died in Ohio
Oh I know that we've got to let it go

Hey hey hey, we're just driving in the dark
Trying to get another start
Your eyes are forward and your mouth is shut
Dying to get out of this rut

Let’s dream big
