Get together
Friends and neighbors all around
One another for each other
Endeavor to find a sound

Upstream, downstream
Uptown, downtown
Circle round the fire
Blow on the coals
Can't haul him up into the boat
Not strong enough to pull up the rope

He's way too heavy to float
And too old to give up the ghost
No one's ever seen him

He's way too heavy to float
And too old to give up the ghost
No one's ever seen him
But we know he's there

Guns and butter
Pick a number and call it out
We know better
We got each others back

New York, LA
Fucked up all day
Get out the news
Get out the vote
Can't haul him up into the boat
Not strong enough to pull up the rope
