Nellie Mckay – Columbia Is Bleeding lyrics

Another day begins
And there you are
The mother sways her shins
Here comes the footstep of the man who'll make your dreams
The tube is fitted in
And there you are
The tepid seditive
Then a scream

Hold your placard up
Cold and coffee cup
After go to a bar
Hand your flier out
Must admire
How dedicated you are
I don't wanna know if you're having fun
Or your maddens are on sale
I don't wanna know if you've got a gun or a new stepson
Or you think you're gonna bail

Chris hougan
She had to run
Last night been a lot of fun
But now it's french
A little tense
She hadn't done the reading
There she sat
Hoped to pass
Didn't think to face the fact
That oh by gosh o lack o lass
Columbia is bleeding
Walkin down
Off the bus
Vickie lucas crossed campus was
Thinkin how she's made it now
That successful feeling
Walked by fast
Hailed a cab
No clue that she'd passed a lab
And while she's sittin in lit class
Columbia is bleeding

The surgeon is in town
And there you are
The clamp is comin' down
Then a scream

Everybody knows protestors are those
Schmoes who don't have a life
See these scientists seeking differences
Have to suffer such strife
I don't wanna know if you're havin fun
Or your maddens are on sale
I don't wanna know if you got a gun or a new stepson
Or you think you're gonna bail

Generalize, proselytize, verbs were spillin out their sides
As charles eise buys his supplies gets ready for a feeding
Tried for track
Hit the mat
Didn't think to face the fact
That while he's thinkin 'man that's wack'
Columbia is bleeding
Quite a snob he didn't tip
Nice guy rob watched the eclipse
And looked around
'I've made it now
I'm just so glad to be here'
Made a pass
Got hand slapped
Didn't think to face the fact
That while he's mackin on that ***
Columbia is bleeding

You don't have a religion
But you have fingers ten
They clutch at your incision
You roll them up and
Then a scream

They're just animals
Make good edibles
Fester filth and disease
Check the bible son
We got dominion
We can do as we please
I don't wanna know if you're havin fun
Or your maddens are on sale
I don't wanna know if you've got a gun or a new stepson
Or you think you're gonna bail
Hell

Tee tee green
Mezzanine
Ended up beside the team
And gave a cheer
Got some beers
With friends who started streakin
Back with zach said 'I look fat'
Didn't think to face the fact
That while she's under self-attack
Columbia is bleeding
Rodney j began to pray
His momma lost her life that day
Had been a year
It wasn't clear
If he was safe or screamin
As he jabbed the bible flap
He didn't think to face the fact
That barbarism killed the cat
Columbia is bleeding

This is the ivy league
