MOTORCADE Sign in or register

 
These toys are all lifeless
The armor's worn off
The shadow of a shadow is the ghost of a bomb
A skyscraper standing in a desert alone
A helicopter searchlight searching for no one

We're all pushing up the tin can mountaintop
The smokestack clouds with glory attached
We're all pushing up the tin can mountaintop
The smokestack clouds with glory attached

The sky-dancers dance in a parking lot wind
That comes from the tundra where the jungle begins
If there's hope in a road block
Guns in a church
The lord will take his motorcade and drive us into the dirt

We're all pushing up the tin can mountaintop
The smokestack clouds with glory attached
We're all pushing up the tin can mountaintop
The smokestack clouds with glory attached

There's a skyscraper on the moon
And a man standing in the window
Forty-second floor
There's a light beaming through the galaxy
Telling you that things are going to be ok

We're all pushing up the tin can mountain top
We're all pushing up the tin can mountain top
We're all pushing up the tin can mountain top
We're all pushing up the tin can mountain top
We're all pushing up the tin can mountain top
