Motherland Lyrics

Artist:natalie merchant

Songs Title:motherland

 

Where in hell can you go

 

Far from the things that you know

 

Far from the sprawl of concrete

That keeps crawling it's way about

1 000 miles a day

 

Take one last look behind

 

Commit this to memory and mind

 

Don't miss this wasteland

This terrible place

When you leave keep your heart off of your sleeve

 

Motherland cradle me close my eyes

Lullaby me to sleep

Keep me safe lie with me

Stay beside me don't go

 

Don't you go

 

Oh my five & dime queen tell me what have you seen

 

The lust and avarice

The bottomless the cavernous greed

 

Is that what you see

Motherland cradle me close my eyes

Lullaby me to sleep

Keep me safe lie with me

Stay beside me don't go

 

It's your happiness I want most of all

 

And for that I'd do anything at all

Oh mercy me

If you want the best of it

 

Or the most of it all

 

If there's anything I can do at all

 

Now come on shot gun bride

 

What makes me envy your life

 

Faceless nameless innocent

Blameless and free

 

What's it like to be

 

Motherland cradle me close my eyes

Lullaby me to sleep

 

Keep me safe lie with me

Stay beside me don't go

 

Don't go

 

Motherland cradle me close my eyes

Lullaby me to sleep

Keep me safe lie with me

Stay beside me don't go

 

Don't go
