lyrics

I'm standing by the wall,
Waiting for balloons,
You don't recognize me,
That's all right, I know you, i know you.

Come now Lilly of the Mohawks,
From the cathedral door,
You've been lurking with the black cloaks,
For two centuries or more,
What are you lurking for?

Well I heard that that St. Patrick,
drove the snakes from the land,
But those sneaky little bastards,
They made their way back,
They're working for the government,
That is to say they're working for the banks


I'm standing by the wall,
Waiting for balloons,
You don't recognise me,
That's alright I know you,
Yeah, I know you

The fat cat has long since died,
He was poisoned on is feet,
Man, you know that that's a lie,
It was suicide by greed
Anyone who's known true hunger,
Eats everything they see

The invisible man is bagging
Groceries at your store,
You know exactly who i mean,
You just never talked with him before,
Oh God Save Us,
From seeing out nation's poor


Come now Lilly of the Mohawks,
From the cathedral door
You've been lurking with the black cloaks,
For three centuries or more
What are you lurking for?


I'm standing by the wall,
Waiting for balloons,
You don't recognise me,
But that's all right, I know you, i know you.

I'm standing by the wall,
Waiting for balloons,
To lift me from this hell hole,
And take me back to you, back to you.

I'm standing by the wall,
Waiting for balloons.
