Jesse Malin – Aftermath lyrics

Oh, the city was changing
The cigarette hit the spot
Oh, a simple distraction
From to have and have not

And the radio went silent
And all our heroes had died
Now you can buy revolution
In any color or size

Standing on a corner watching people walk on
Thinking about a photograph
How so many people choose a lesser evil?
Living in the aftermath

Oh, she never got famous
She was the star in my life
'Til we drifted like runoff
Or two ships in the night

Standing on a corner watching people walk on
Thinking about a photograph
How so many people choose a lesser evil?
Living in the aftermath

Down a long hard road
Such a long hard road
To hold on and move on

And I hope she's happy
And I hope she's free
Somehow we choose our own destiny

From the eve of destruction
To the valley of tears
Before it all went to voice mail
And we rang in the year

And the midnight martyrs
Well, they still hang on the cross
You can die in the gutter baby
Or learn to live with the loss

Well, I've standing on a corner watching people walk on
Thinking about a photograph
How so many people choose a lesser evil?
Living in the aftermath

Well, I keep standing on a corner, everybody's talking
Remember when we used to laugh?
How so many people choose a lesser evil?
Never giving peace a chance

Down a long hard road
Such a long hard road
To hold on and move on

Down a long hard road
Such a long hard road
To hold on and move on, boys
To hold on and hold on till it's gone
