Lyrics

A Flatter Land

Written By: Sam MacKinnon

VERSE 1
Well you’re the joker the contortionist
You’re the music maker
And you’re the broken arm, the car alarm
Oh, oh, the undertaker
Yes you’re the bow-tie, the running man,
You’re the lion tamer
And you’re the fashion whore, the party girl
Ooh the booty shaker

CHORUS
And would you understand
Would you understand
A flatter land?
And if you lost all your dimensions, oh
Would you recognize your hands?

VERSE 2
Well you’re the allergy, the allegory
You’re the Sunday sermon
And your’ the black man, the samurai,
Oh the Afro Cuban
Hey, you’re the nature guy, environmentalist,
Part of the mountain
Or you’re the hacksaw, the children’s book
You’re the flower garden

CHORUS

BRIDGE
And would you know your place
In a simple place?
If you had no home,
If you had no face
If there were no clocks
Just and open space
With no where to go

VERSE 3
Well you’re the black suit, the shiny car
You’re the dollar bill
And you’re the FBI, the IRS
Oh, the silent kill
And you’re the alcoholic insomniac
With a lack of friends and knack for dropping pills
And you’re the lover, you’re the loser,
You’re the lunatic, you’re everything
And still…. And still…..

CHORUS
