Lost in the Flood - Bruce Springsteen

The ragamuffin gunner is returning home

 

Like a hungry runaway

 

He walks through town all alone

He must be from the fort he hears

The high school girls say

 

His countrysides burning with wolfman

Fairies dressed in drag for homicide

 

The hit and run plead sanctuary

 

Neath a holy stone they hide

 

They're breaking beams

And crosses with a spastics reeling perfection

 

Nuns run bald through vatican halls pregnant

 

Pleading immaculate conception

 

And everybodys wrecked on

Main street from drinking unholy blood

 

Sticker smiles sweet as gunner breathes deep

His ankles caked in mud

 

And I said hey gunner man thats quicksand

Thats quicksand that ain't mud

 

Have you thrown your senses to the war

Or did you lose them in the flood

 

That pure american brother

 

Dull-eyed and empty-faced

 

Races sundays in jersey in a chevy stock super eight

 

He rides 'er low on the hip

On the side hes got bound for glory in red

White and blue flash paint

 

He leans on the hood telling racing stories

 

The kids call him jimmy the

Saint

 

Wegll the blaze and noise boy

Hes gunning that b**ch loaded to blasting point

 

He rides head first into a hurricane

And disappears into a point

 

And theres nothing left

But some blood where the body fell

That is nothing left that you could sell

 

Just junk all across the horizon

 

A real highwaymans farewell

 

And he said hey kid you think thats oil man

That ain't oil thats blood

 

I wonder what he was thinking when he hit that storm

 

Or was he just lost in the flood

 

Eighth avenue sailors in satin shirts whisper in the air

 

Some storefront incarnation of maria

 

She's putting on me the stare

 

And bronxs best apostle stands with

His hand on his own hard ware

 

Everything stops you hear five

Quick shots the cops come up for air

 

And now the whiz-bang gang from uptown

 

They're shooting up the street

 

And that cat from the bronx starts letting loose

But he gets blown right off his feet

 

And some kid comes blasting round the corner

 

But a cop puts him right away

 

He lays on the street

Holding his leg screaming something in spanish

Still breathing when I walked away

 

And someone said hey man did you see

That his body hit the street with

Such a beautiful thud

 

I wonder what the dude was saying

 

Or was he just lost in the flood

 

Hey man did you see that

 

Those poor cats are sure messed up

 

I wonder what they were getting into

Or were they just lost in the flood
