lyrics

December thirty first
and you feel like you could burst
take a deep breath mama
you’re here today
now you have served your time
and there’s no chance to rewind
may your burned little heart
find peace in time

Anita is your name
and your children sling cocaine
the streets took your man
who’s to blame
there’s chaos in the air
it’s about damn time we care
we’re all on this ship
and it’s sinking fast

she said…
take the back roads to Birmingham
and maybe you’ll understand
this ginger lil’ place
ain’t Dixieland
my granddaddy Jim
he and all his kin
worked them fields
through thick and thin

Anita is my name
and my children sling cocaine
the streets took my man
who’s to blame
there’s chaos in the air
it’s about damn time we care
we’re all on this ship
and it’s sinking fast

Burrell’s laying in that cold cell
on a rusted out bed
six feet underground
with no rock at his head
stars and stripes above me
they’re whipping in the wind
in the name of liberty
a nation filled with sin

la la la la la la la la
let the bird fly out
