Light Pollution

Bright Eyes

 GD
 John A Hobson was a good man
 AmC
 he used to loan me books and mic stands
 GD
 he even got me a subscription
 AmC
 to the Socialist Review
 GD
 listening to records in his basement
 AmC
 old folk songs about the government
 GD
 "it's love of money, not the market,"
 AmC
 he said, "these fuckers push on you.
 GD
 and freedom yells, it dont cry.
 GD
 whatever sells will decide.
 GD
 but there is no hell when you die.
 Am
so dont look so worried."
 GD
 he got a night life, lost his day job
 AmC
 pushing paper, swinging pendulums
 GD
 anything to serve a function
 AmC
 or to occupy some time
 GD
 you have got to earn this living somehow
 AmC
 you are good as dead without a bank account
 GD
 but it is funny how alive he felt down
 AmC
 in that unemployment line
 GD
 with all the trash at his feet
 GD
 the pools of piss in the street
 GD
 all of that filthy empathy
 Am
for the way we're feeling

G-D-Am-C (x2)

 GD
 the billboards shade, the flags they wave
 AmC
 the anthem was playing loud
 GD
 the baseball game was letting out
 AmC
 then all at once he saw the dust
 GD
 and heard every tiny sound

 AmC
 got in his truck and turned around
 GD
 drove out through the crowd and the cops
 AmC
 drove out past that center mall
 GD
 drove out past that sickening sprawl
 AmC
 out past that fenced in gold
 GD
 and maybe he lost control
 GD
 fucking with the radio
 GD
 but i bet the stars seemed so close
 Am
at the end
