Why don't we stay here and try to make things work, huh?

lyrics

I had the pleasure of being stuck in traffic again
Behind a car whose bumpersticker read,
“Blessed is the country whose God is the Lord”
I guess that means the US
And I guess that means your heathen country will have to be destroyed


I had the pleasure of being stuck in traffic again
Behind a car whose bumpersticker read,
“In case of Rapture, this car will be abandoned”
So if you’re stuck behind me, you better pray to your god that
you don’t ram into me
I’m headed to a country club in the sky
The Rapture guarantees my permanent address up on high


Well, I don’t believe in the Rapture
Don’t wanna go flying thru the air
Leaving my friends all here behind
Turning my back on humankind
Why don’t we stay here and try to make things work?

Why don’t we stay here and try to make things work?

I got your lezzie rock right here! Since 1984, keeping it real in Austin, TX. What do I mean by "real"? Transgressive, literate, unapologetic, and unafraid. Plus fun. Don't forget fun. Even when it's sad, let's look for the fun.
